Dear Ms Chan,

Please accept my resume as an application for the open position of Sales Associate in your company. As a fresh graduate of Business Administration, the position appears to fit wonderfully with my education, experience, and career interests.

Being a student of Far Eastern University, not only did I maintain excellent grades, but I was also a member of our school’s highly competitive and successful collegiate football team.

My background as a student and an athlete has taught me to be an efficient manager of my time which, I am confident, is one of the important qualities needed by any professional in the sales industry. My experience with working in a team environment has also instilled in me the value of teamwork and cooperation. As a member of the team, I had to listen, learn how to motivate myself and others and understand the differences that exist among the members of the team. Through my achievements as a student and an athlete, I have proven that I am passionate about the things I do as well as dedicated.

And while this would be my first time working in the field of sales, I am quite confident that with my skills and abilities, I can learn quickly and make an immediate impact to your team and to the company.

Thank you for taking the time to consider my application and I look forward to hearing from you.

Sincerely,

Signature

Peter Lee

 

Writing Tip: If you are a fresh graduate, or if you lack experience in the field that you are applying for, it is best to point up the experience and qualities that make you suitable for the job. In this cover letter sample, the candidate showcases his skills by telling his experience and achievements as a student and an athlete. Although he is new to the field of sales, he could impress the hiring manager with his optimistic tone and by indicating that he is a quick learner. 

 

Cover Letter Sample 2 (Experienced, Email Copy)

This cover letter shows the proper format if you submit your cover letter through email. Unlike a formal business letter, a cover email only requires a salutation at the beginning and an email signature at the bottom that includes your name, address and contact information.
