To Whom It May Concern,

Upon seeing your information online I learned of your current job opening. As you will see on my attached resume I have over 5 years in the Landscape Business. I have sold patios and supervised work crews of landscapers. My jobs have given me a thorough knowledge of landscape supplies and equipment and have allowed me to communicate with corporate accounts and perform customer service to businesses.

I would appreciate the opportunity to discuss my experiences with you and discuss how I can benefit your organization with my customer service, direct sales and landscape knowledge.

I have enclosed my resume for your review. I would appreciate the opportunity to sit down and meet with you to discuss how I can add value to your company. Please call me at your earliest convenience. I look forward to meeting with you.

I can be reached at 224-***-****. Thank you for your consideration.
