Dear Ms. Pascal,
I would appreciate very much an opportunity to meet with you and
demonstrate how my unique experience and education could be of particular
advantage to your company’s future growth.
My practice last summer at Pascal Business System helped me focus on my academic and career goals. My fourteen weeks with your company involved me in a
whole variety of sales support activities including preparing brochures and catalogs, coordinating trade shows, providing data and information to salespeople in the field,
and interacting with customers.
During the past two semesters I have concentrated on developing my electronic publishing and business communication skills. I am confident that I can improve the
ways in which Pascal Business Systems provides support for field marketing representatives. This would include designing and maintaining an online catalog
which could be coordinated with current inventories.
I am available for an interview at your convenience and look forward to an opportunity to discuss ways to improve operations and communications with field
locations and sales. Thank you for your kind consideration.
