You want this judgement to be positive so that they read your resume or CV

Dear Mrs Jones
RE: Advert for Regional Sales Manager, Daily Courier 15 April 2011
I wish to apply for the position of Regional Sales Manager based at your Rose Hill Offices, as advertised in the above publication on 15 April 2011.
I have more than ten years experience in insurance sales management. Three years ago I was promoted to Insurance Sales Leader and currently lead a team of nine Sales Advisors. We've had huge successes. My budget responsibility is approximately $450,000 p.a.
In my current role as Insurance Sales Leader, I train, motivate and performance manage sales staff to achieve growing sales targets. Last year my team won the Best Sales Team Award for hitting 120% of target, while at the same time maintaining high customer service standards and record keeping requirements.
I am confident that I can be as successful if not more successful working for you and would relish the opportunity to help Coveright meet its ambitious sales and growth targets.
As you can see from my resume, I hold several insurance qualifications and am a member of the American Insurance Association. Should you wish to examine them, I have the relevant documents.
My skills, experience and qualifications match your requirements and I'd be delighted to meet with you to discuss the contribution I can make to your Company. I very much look forward to hearing from you.
Yes we do. If you'd like to download our 15 page Cover Letters Guide, you'll receive 4 resume cover letter examples.
