Sample Answer 1:

Dear Sir or Madam,

I have recently noticed your job advertisement for the post of sales manager at the Rubin Gorham Inc. and wish to apply for the position. I am hoping to meet you in person to further discuss my candidacy.

I earned my bachelor degree in Marketing and Finance from Macquarie University in Sydney, Australia in 2015 and then migrated to the United Kingdom as a permanent resident to stay with my mother. Having finished my graduation in marketing and finance, I immediately joined Lucas Inc., a large car manufacturing company in Australia. I worked with them as a marketing executive for two and a half years and was promoted to the senior marketing researcher position after a year. I quit the job to move to the UK in early 2017. Now I am working as a sales lead for a manufacturing company in London. I am a self-motivated individual and love to make sales happen under my direct supervision. I manage a team of 8 members and take my responsibility religiously. I am quite positive that I would be a valuable asset to your company.

I, herein, enclose my CV which states my educational and professional details for your kind consideration.

I look forward to meeting you soon in a formal interview.

Yours faithfully,

Nicole Tyler
