Dear Ms. Cook:

I am interested in applying for the sales representative position that is posted through the Portland State University Career Center's database, PSU CareerConnect.

I feel that my background qualifies me in several ways. My theater arts experience has provided me with strong communication skills that would allow me to make effective sales presentations. Additionally, as a speakers board chairperson, I assumed responsibility for planning and scheduling speakers, negotiating contracts, and supervising promotional campaigns. While in college, I directed and produced three plays where I motivated, persuaded, and communicated effectively with others. I believe these skills will enable me to be a successful salesperson.

I am very interested in working for your firm. I know that you have an excellent reputation for training new sales representatives and that you have strong career development program. I met your District Sales Manager in February at the Portland State University Career Information Day and he indicated that your company seeks highly motivated and energetic people for your sales force. I think that I meet those qualifications and would like to have an opportunity to meet with you to discuss my background. I can be reached at (503)555-1234 and look forward to hearing from you.
