Sample cover letter for Full Time position at Nike



Dear Ms. Sells:

In today’s highly competitive sportswear industry, market share is everything. To get market share, you need sales people who can not only generate new accounts, but can keep sales volume high in those accounts by: following up with retailers to provide responsive service and strategically out-positioning competitors in the produce displays.

My sales and customer service experience has provided me with a strong combination of skills and knowledge in customer rapport building, closing techniques, product merchandising, and purchasing systems. Throughout my work history, I have consistently increased the number of the repeat and long-term customers and expanded sales volume above established goals.

In addition to my ability to foster loyal customer relationships and influence buying decisions, my marketing degree has prepared me to understand how to adapt to changing markets and economic conditions. I am also known by others as a collaborative term player who brings enthusiasm to accomplishing company goals.It is because of these strengths that I know I can make a contribution to Nike’s sales efforts. Enclosed is a resume highlighting my qualifications. I look forward to meeting with you in the next two weeks to further demonstrate how I can be of benefit to your organization.
