Dear Ms Graham,
I am sending you this cover letter and an attached CV, in regards to the Sales Assistant position that you advertised on the Dayjob.com website yesterday
As a passionate Sales Assistant, I believe I would be an excellent representative of your company’s brand and reputation. I come to you as a highly motivated, confident and resilient individual who has a good mix of diplomacy, tact, assertiveness and body language. My education and front line sales experience has equipped me with an outstanding knowledge of how to work within a wide spectrum of the retail sector.
With my present employer I am known for my knowledge of the Fast Moving Consumer Goods marketplace and for my ability to inspire customers to make a purchase. You will also see from my attached CV that I am an expert at giving advice to customers, writing up sales reports for senior managers and managing sales support databases.
On a personal level, I am polite, well groomed and possess a strong work-ethic along with an intense desire to succeed. In addition to this, I come from an advanced academic and marketing background, having completed a degree in Sales at the University of Coventry.
Right now I am looking for a suitable position with a company like yours, where I can develop my sales career even further.
I thank you for your time and expectantly wait to hear a positive response from you.
