Mr. Henrik Fan
Piroska utca 21-23,
Dear Mr. Fan,
I was very interested in your advertisement in the Budapest Sun last week for the post of junior sales manager. I feel that I would be an excellent candidate for this position, and would like to apply.
Through my work as marketing assistant for Glycom Armenia, I have built a strong record of significant achievement in progressively more responsible sales and office management position during my short career. My six months management placement experience with Palmolive in Great Britain provided me with intensive experience planning, developing and implementing sales of body care products. In addition to this I performed management responsibilities including the supervision of a staff of five. Having recently completed a Master’s degree in Economics at the Central European University, I have an excellent command of both written and spoken English, as well as a clear understanding of market forces. I have worked extensively with Microsoft Word and Excel both in a work environment and in my recent studies, and am conversant with the most popular Internet software. I possess a full driving license.
A position with Unilever Hungary would offer me the opportunity to further develop my experience in the area of sales and marketing, a field of work which I find stimulating and fulfilling, within the framework of a company with an established international reputation.
Please find enclosed a copy of my curriculum vitae, with details of references as requested. Should you have any further questions, you may reach me at the above address, phone number or email. I look forward to hearing from you to discuss your organization and how my experience can contribute to its success.
