Dear Mr. Smith:
I am very interested in joining an organization such as (name the organization). During my online research, I was very excited to learn about the current opening for a (specify position), and feel my qualifications and your requirements are a good match. For your review, I have attached my resume for your consideration.
I offer an outstanding sales career spanning more than fifteen years selling and marketing major cosmetics brands, and have the skills needed to grow your beauty supply business. I am certain upon review of my attached resume and in-person interview, you will find me to be very knowledgeable of and enthusiastic about the beauty industry.
My background combines unique experience managing customer relationships and marketing and a range of beauty products for consumers and commercial accounts such as hotels and day spas.
In my current position as a Sales and Merchandising Specialist with ExquiZuite, I have driven sales of major cosmetic lines such as Sassy and Prissy on a national level, including all major department stores and top cable shopping networks.
In the course of my sales career, I have built a strong network of industry professionals and developed new business with wholesalers and retailers, as well as online. I am known in close circles as someone who provides excellence in client service management, maintains a highly visible presence at trade shows, and who generates positive press — and feared by the competition for the same reasons!
My credentials include a degree in business management, along with a cosmetology diploma. I am also an instructor with experience training new associates and conducting product workshops to demonstrate the benefits and applications of each product line. As a result, both I and my knowledgeable team consistently deliver over-quota results.
My sales performance is measurable and documented in glowing evaluation reports, indicating a consistent track record for exceeding demanding sales goals during periods when even the largest name brands were struggling to meet their sales targets. It is this spirit of sales achievement and expert knowledge of the beauty industry that I would like to bring to your organization.
If you feel there is a mutual interest, I would welcome the opportunity to meet with you to learn more about your company, the requirements of the position, and how my qualifications would be a good fit.
Thank you in advance for your time and consideration of my candidacy. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
