San Jose, CA 95131

Dear Ms. Jan Bordner,

I am interested in the Sales Trainee position with BlueLinx Corporation and I am excited about the possibility of working for your company.

I know I have what it takes to be a professional salesperson and acquiring this position would be a huge step in meeting my goals.

While I am in the process of learning the basics, I have the personal skills to pursue this career and the ability to learn how to become a professional.

I am very outgoing with a pleasant and persuasive personality. I know how to connect with others by creating a relaxing environment where they feel comfortable to ask questions. This opens the door to promote products and to explain how they can benefit the consumer, which encourages sales.

I have my diploma and over two years of experience working in a sales position where I gained firsthand experience working with customers, up selling products and handling complaints. I am team orientated with the ability to work as part of a group successfully but I am also self-motivated and have the ability to meet obligations when working independently.

I am a fast learner with excellent problem solving skills. I can understand and anticipate the needs of the customers in order to encourage sales and increase revenue. I possess excellent communication skills, a strong desire to work in sales and I have the ability to deal with rejection professionally. I am confident that I can flourish in this very competitive environment.

You can reach me by calling (333)-796-1402 and I look forward to meeting with you soon to discuss this position in more detail.

Respectfully,

Your Signature

John Danielson
