i would like to ask you to consider my qualification for the position in sales that you advertised in jobspower.com.
i graduated from the college of business in june of 19xx. since that time i have been taking night courses at polytechnics in sales techniques and mass media advertising.
i have worked as a vehicle salesman for the ford co. for the past three years. at present i am their chief salesman and account for over one half of the sales. before my present employment, i worked for the chains deparment store as a salesclerk in the electrical appliance section. we worked mainly on commission and i was able to earn a substantial amount although i was very young.
i would like to make a change now because i feel that i can go no further in my present job, i feel that my ability and my training should enable me to advance into a better and more responsible position, and it appears that this will not be forth-coming at my present position.
if you would like to know more about my ability, i can be available for an interview at any time convenient to you.
