Mark Creasman 4452 Resaca Drive Grove City, OH 43123 Dear Human Resource Manager: Please accept this letter for a position currently available within your company. I have reviewed all of your essential duties and skill requirement qualifications and I have all of them except for the ASE certification. I am a professional experienced salesperson seeking to work for a successful company. I am looking for a reputable company that is growing with excellent products and a history of success just like me. I am self motivated. I am someone who makes things happen. An example of this would be when I was asked to get more dealers to start purchasing more of our off lease vehicles from our website. I thought of a way to get the results from the customer’s standpoint instead of my own. As a result, I was successful with the clients I targeted while other sales employees were unsuccessful. I targeted clients where I saw a need instead of just blindly going after the largest clients. I make it a priority to know my customers and their needs. I had several people calling me to find out what I was doing to achieve my successful results. I am an energetic employee with 17 years of successful long term relationships, training and selling experience. I am trusted and dealers know they can count on me. I fulfill my promises and follow through. I train employees and follow them to ensure they are successful. I am willing to relocate and travel. I have experience in directly managing others in an office environment as well as managing others that work for dealerships to get the sales results desired. These dealership employees worked in many different marketing environments. I have held a key-pointed position working from my home as well as an office and am able to work independently and successfully. I am self motivated with many skills. I am confident that I possess the qualifications necessary to excel in this position and know that I would be an asset to your team. I am looking forward to the opportunity to discuss my credentials with you at a mutually convenient time. If you interview me I am sure you will hire me. When you meet me, you will see that I have loyalty, unparalleled competence and a passion for success. I have a clean driving record. Thank you for your time and consideration.
