September *, ****

Good Afternoon,

It is with great excitement and anticipation that I am writing this letter. It has taken me a while, but I am ready to move on and look for a position with a company that is enthusiastic and excited about growth within their industry. I would love to find that position within your organization, I am very familiar with the MRO/OEM/Industrial world and know I can help your company become an even larger recognized leader among your markets.

Why choose me? I am familiar with the industrial, oil and gas, power and energy, and manufacturing arena, I understand the importance of relationship with people at their facilities, from floor to boardroom, and I understand what their growth and cost savings objectives are. I believe I am a good leader, organized, a strong communicator, and motivated to succeed for the right reasons. I have been a part of the same region my entire Fastenal career, have been steady in my work and advanced in Fastenal thru hard work and dedication. District Managers, General Managers and I as a team have developed a professional and personal working relationship. That hard work and professionalism helped build one of the company’s top accounts over the last 10 years within Fastenal. My competitive spirit and business knowledge will be a tremendous asset to your team and company. I truly believe given the opportunity I can bring tremendous synergy and cost savings to the table. I am not afraid to roll up the sleeves and negotiate, I understand the industrial business market, and not afraid to challenge myself to learn more.

I am not looking for a new position for personal goals only, I am looking for a position that continues to challenge me. My entire life, from my athletic career to my business career I have achieved success based on hard work, self-motivation, and continual challenging of myself. I believe if given this opportunity, I will continue to move your team and company in the right direction.

Thank you for considering me for a position. I would be glad to visit with you further regarding a position with in your company and look forward to meeting with you.
