Dear (Personalize Whenever Possible):
I saw your post on Craigslist for a sales management trainee and wanted to apply.
As a recent graduate of Awesome Community College, I earned my AA in business and am eager to transition my school work to the work world!
My variety of classes, which included multiple group projects, gave me experience in functioning as a valued team member and realizing the importance of each task, however slight, to the ultimate outcome of the project.
I was able to earn a 3.5 GPA while simultaneously working as a sales associate at the Verizon Store, where I was responsible for all aspects of customer service and product knowledge, in addition to meeting daily and weekly goals – excellent skills for any sales position! I also am an active volunteer at the local Food Bank.
I am proficient in a variety of computer languages; am extremely thorough and detail-oriented; and work well either autonomously or as a member of a team. As a goal-oriented individual, I am used to a fast-paced environment and working with a wide variety of associates.
Attached is my resume and references from my Business Management teacher, my manager at the Verizon Store and the volunteer coordinator at the Food Bank. In addition to my skills and personality, they can vouch for my work ethic and dedication to my responsibilities.
I look forward to hearing from you soon!
