Dear Mr. Silber:

I'm looking for a position as a book sales representative because I love to read, I believe in books, and I regard your company with the highest esteem for your work ethics and integrity toward employees. I know this from my associate, Brad Hopkins, who recently retired from your firm.

In addition I'm a 'cracker jack' salesperson. It's in my blood. I started selling door-to-door products at age 19 and I made a living by that work for the next ten years. That is why I'm writing this cover letter today. I hope to win an interview with you so we can meet in person to determine whether or not I am the one for the job.

I'll be happy to accommodate your schedule. Please phone me at 695-888-8756 and give me a time and date that works for you. I really appreciate being considered for this job.
