Writing cover letters for a sales job

If you are interested in a career in sales, you have to sell yourself to an employer. If you can't convince them that you would be a valuable employee, you probably won't be able to convince their customers to buy their product or service. That's why cover letters for a sales job are so important.

There are a number of ways that you can approach cover letters for sales jobs. For more creative industries, such as media sales or advertising sales, you might want to experiment with producing a fresh, original format. However, in most cases, it's best to stick with traditional formats and use your words to sell your abilities.

Here is a sample cover letter for a sales job.

Dear [name of contact - try to avoid generic terms like Sir or Madam],

I am a target-driven sales professional with a strong track record in the field of B2B. I read your job advertisement for the position of Sales Executive with interest - I think that my skills and experience are an ideal match for your requirements.

During my two years as a sales assistant in a large advertising firm, I honed my selling technique to the point where I consistently exceed all monthly sales targets. I now feel that I am ready for a new challenge, and this Sales Executive position would allow me to utilise my sales experience and techniques.

Thank you for taking the time to look at my application. I hope to hear from you in the near future.

Kind Regards,

When submitting cover letters for a sales job, you will obviously need to attach or enclose your CV. However, you may also want to include another supporting document to show how you have achieved your targets or grown revenue in your current or previous job. Sales managers love charts, graphs and diagrams, so add some in to illustrate your achievements.
