Dear Hiring Manager,
I am a proficient and trained professional and after reading your posting in the local newspaper, I am
excited to know your organization is seeking to hire an experienced sales director. My background and skills align well with the qualification you are looking for to fill the position and I am certain I would make a valuable addition to your organization. With more than 7 years of experience as a sales director, I am quite familiar with all aspects of the retail industry including inventory and merchandising.
I have a proven track record of directing and developing sales and in addition to that, I have completed the corporate sales program. As a sales director, my focus is on identifying and developing sales leads for company products. With experience in sales, the last five in a management position, I have a solid understanding of what it takes to close a deal and keep the customer coming back for more. I am a hunter who can find leads even in unlikely places, and I know how to turn a customer complaint into a business opportunity. I have a thorough understanding of all aspects of the sales cycle and experience handling high tickets and multi-year contracts. My listening skills are top-notch. When it comes to working with diverse personalities I know how to get along with any clients or co-workers.
Taking advantage of technology is one of my greatest strengths. I will be thankful to you if you review my resume and determine if I am fit for your open position. I am interested in meeting with you in person and discuss how I can contribute to your organization.
