Dear [Name],

Please consider me as a candidate for the position of [……. ]

The enclosed resume indicates my broad experience in the area of [……..] and my considerable (and growing!) experience in [area].

I believe that this experience, together with my education has given me the ideal preparation to assume the role of [……. ].

All my professional experience has been in [area of expertise]. Since I have worked for [ company name] for four years, I understand your core business and am quite familiar with the kind of issues, problems and challenges I may face as a [position] working for you.

On my attached resume, I have described my concept of successful [sales] management. I am convinced that this function can make an enormous contribution to growth and profits, and I am most eager to prove it to you.

Also, I must say that I have been very happy with [company], my present employer.
