Ref: application sales assistant

Dear Ms. Smith,

I would like to apply for the sales assistant position that is currently open at Abel Direct.  I am responding to your advertisement in the August 4th issue of Newsday.

Currently, I am interning at USA Mail Direct in Westbury, where I am responsible for cold-calling and assisting with the compilation of market research data. This experience, in addition to courses that I have taken in my marketing program at Nassau Community College, has prepared me with the skills and knowledge necessary for this candidate to have. Additionally, I have learned first-hand how to effectively handle customers and their demands through my part-time teller position at Brooklyn Bank.

I would appreciate the opportunity to speak with you further about this position.  I will contact you at a later time to see if an interview can be arranged. 
Thank you.

Sincerely,
Jayne Freed
