Dear <Salutation.> <Employer’s name :>
I am writing to apply for the position of <Marketing and Development Specialist> following its advertisement in <The Denver Business Journal> of <March 21, 2011>. Being in possession of vast steadily gained experience in <a similar position> at < Marathon Petroleum, Findlay, OH > spanning a period of up to 8 years, I believe I am most suited for this job.
I have a bias towards business development and marketing and in order to broaden my scope and understanding in this field, I graduated with an Executive Masters of Business Administration Degree from Bowling Green State University, Bowling Green, OH in August 2011. In line with your company’s goals and objectives as outlined in the advertisement, I am confident that my experience and knowledge will help revamp and spur your company’s growth and profitability. This borrows from my previous work experience at < Marathon Petroleum> where I helped the company acquire 4 new accounts resulting in an annual increase of 65,000,000 branded fuel gallons per year. Consequently, this resulted in the development of a second Territory Manager position in the state of Georgia. In addition, I am a hard working, ambitious and talented individual committed to both personal and professional excellence.
As noted in my research about your company, I believe there is great potential for expansion into the existing untapped markets, both locally and beyond. I would therefore be pleased to avail myself for an interview hoping to be considered and given a chance at being part of your team’s success. I can be reached through the contacts provided and on phone every evening, except Tuesday from 5.30 p.m. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
