Dear Ms. Burns,
As one of the top revenue generators in the Tri-State area for State Farm Insurance, I would like to schedule a meeting with you to discuss how I can put my proven insurance sales ability to work for Home Town Insurance.
In six years of working for State Farm, I routinely met or exceeded sales quotas every quarter – sometimes by as much as 75%. Each year I signed 25% more new accounts than my fellow team members and, within 8 months of joining the firm, I consistently ranked in the top 15% of sales personnel within the region.
As an active member of the local Rotary Club, I honed my leadership and marketing skills by working with other community leaders to raise funds for the construction of a new sports field, leading a fundraising team to meet and surpass its goal three months ahead of schedule.
My professional sales experience began before I had even received my BA degree in Business from the University of Iowa, for I worked my way through school by selling textbooks throughout the state.
My resume, which is enclosed, is full of examples of my ability to work both independently and as a team player. I am a high-energy employee and a proven self-starter.
Perhaps most importantly, I believe that honesty, integrity and a commitment to providing superlative service are the foundation of a successful sales career, and this is what I can bring to Home Town Insurance.
I look forward to discussing opportunities with you at your earliest convenience. Please call me at 615.432.1234 and let me know when I can schedule a meeting with you. Thank you for your time.
With sincere best wishes,
