This is in response to the advertisement you placed in the local paper last week regarding an opening in your company. I would like to apply for the position of sales manager and have attached my resume for your perusal. I believe that I have the skills and the potential that you are looking for in a sales manager.
I am a graduate of an undergraduate degree in sales and marketing from a reputed university in the country. I was immediately hired as a sales representative of a company for which I worked until recently. In my previous work, I was recognized for being one of the best sales representatives for two years. With my excellent educational background and work experience, I know that I meet your qualifications.
I hope to discuss with you at your most convenient time how I could further benefit the company. I will be calling your office soon for your response.
