Mr. Burton C. Hasselbach
Ethical Global Pharmaceuticals, Inc.
550 Totten Pond Road
Waltham, MA 02154
Dear Mr. Hasselbach,
I am happy to respond to your August 18, 2005 job posting in the Washington Post for a pharmaceutical sales representative. In researching the pharmaceutical industry, I noted Ethical Global's leadership position in research and development and in making its products available to underprivileged populations. Having decided to develop a career in biopharmaceutical sales and marketing, I am excited about the prospect of making a contribution to Ethical Global's worldwide sales force, and am attaching a resume for your review.
In several years of professional sales experience, I can list these achievements, which highlight my selling and leadership skills:
- Earned designation as top performer in my region for four consecutive quarters
- Received several letters of commendation from new customers (see my brag book) for excellent customer service
- Assisted in the training of new-hires in the sales organization and contributed to the update of the selling skills module of the training program
In the current tough marketing environment, I understand how essential it is to master the art of selling products while providing sustained, exceptional customer service, which exceeds client expectations. I am eager to learn the product knowledge essential to presenting pharmaceutical products effectively to physicians. A natural 'people-person,' I look forward to meeting physicians and to representing Ethical Global's products to them.
Mr, Hasselbach, thank you in advance for reviewing my resume. I look forward to the opportunity to meet with you in a face-to-face interview, where you can assess first-hand the qualities of excellence and leadership I hope to bring to your organization.
Alan S. Foxworth Enclosure
