Mr. Keith Hanson
Hiring Manager
Big Town Lumber Company
100 Redwood Highway
Big Town, USA 99999

Dear Mr. Hanson:

Today I am writing cover letters in search of a job as a sales manager. Your post for this position came to my attention on JobSearchJimmy.com. I was so pleased to see it because I am familiar with the lumber industry and have five years of experience in this field. I worked for Northern California Lumber Supply and had great success building the business and training as well as working with a great team of sales people.

I've attached my resume, which provides details about my experience and the awards I've received for the sales goals I've achieved over the span of my career. Now that I live in Big Town I'm eager to get into sales again—specifically management.

I'm good with people, I like to set and meet goals, and I enjoy the challenge of helping a company expand and grow its sales territory. I don't mean to boast, but I can assure you that you would not regret bringing me aboard Big Town Lumber Company. I would dive right into my job and make important things happen within the first month.

If you're curious about what that means, please contact me for an interview so we can talk extensively about my plan.
It would be a pleasure to meet in person. I hope you would like to meet me, as well. If so,
please call me at 777-777-7777 to schedule an interview. In the meantime, thank you for looking over my cover letter and resume.

I would appreciate showing you how I can become an asset to your company by increasing the quality of your sales department.

Sincerely,

Grant Job Searcher

A Timely Tip: Write your own sales manager cover letter, of course, but if you need a little help, the one above can be a good guide. Just be sure that your letter is unique to you and conveys your personality as well as your professionalism so you will be invited in for an interview.
