Dear Sir or Madam,

I am a seasoned sales representative and wanted to inquire about your advertisement for the Admissions Representative position that you posted on Craigslist. With recruiting knowledge and over 10 years of overall sales experience, I feel that I would be a strong addition to your team. I have an exceptional ability to build long term ties with both team members and clients. Along with a successful track record in the recruitment of new business and the retention of existing clients, I have a passion for the education industry.

Over the last several months, I have worked towards completing my BA at the University of Pittsburgh, along with completing ten classes at the CCAC. I have volunteered at two establishments for children and maintained full time work in the evenings while completing my education.

I’d like the opportunity to tell you more about my work experience and how my skill set could contribute to the success of this position. I’d be happy to supply strong references at your request.

I look forward to discussing the position with you.
