Dear Ms. Long,

Re: Sales Assistant Vacancy (Reference Number 98743)

I am writing to apply for the position of sales assistant, as advertised in the Daily Post on June 5, 2014.

As you will see on my resume, I have experience working in the grocery industry and for a large department store. I have excellent customer service and relationship building skills, which I think are essential for this position. In both of my previous positions I had a track record for consistently meeting sales targets.

I have enclosed my resume. It shows that I will bring important skills to this position, including:

  • time management and strong organizational skills;
  • excellent customer service;
  • cash-handling and till reconciliation; and
  • in-store displays.

I would very much enjoy having the opportunity to talk with you further to discuss the requirements and expectations of the position, including how I can use my skills to benefit Brandname Sales.

Thank you for considering my application. I look forward to hearing from you. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Yours sincerely,


Martin E. McDowell
