Dear Ms. Donne:
Enclosed is a copy of my résumé in response to your advertisement for an assistant
sales manager in the May 29 Morning Ledger.
In the past two years, I have sharpened my communications and teamwork skills
while working as an intern and full-time summer employee for a national pharmaceutical
company. In that position, I helped develop and implement new sales programs for
several new product lines. I worked closely with the regional sales manager and managers
of other key departments in the organization as well as with suppliers and vendors.
I look forward to discussing my background and accomplishments with you and learning
more about your needs. I will call next week to arrange a time to meet. I can be contacted
during the day at (201) 555-1221, or you may leave a message with my answering service
at (201) 555-3636.
Thank you for your consideration.
