Account Manager Cover Letter Sample 3:
Please accept this as application for the Account Manager Position you have posted online. I would appreciate your consideration of my attached resume that depicts my business characteristics and educational background.
I pride myself on my communication and public relations skills. My diverse sales experiences at The Rochester Business Journal, National Income Life Insurance Co., and Delta Sonic Corporation have provided me with the opportunity to learn from a variety of consumer situations. Customer satisfaction has always been a priority for me as I understand the importance of return business and ‘buzz’ marketing. I have enjoyed continued positive client relationships in all of my sales and marketing positions due to my lively personality and enthusiasm. Working at these different sales positions has instilled in me the importance of attention to detail. I have shared with others my motto that “the customer may not recognize what you did, but they will notice what you neglected to do”.
I am a very driven individual that takes initiative in all situations, especially while working as a team member. I take pride in my ability to communicate with people no matter what their age or station in life. I enjoy dealing with the public on a social or business level. I am very conscientious about meeting deadlines and completing tasks unsupervised. If given the opportunity to accomplish an assignment, I can develop a plan that will meet the needs of the project. I was granted increasing responsibilities and hands-on training at Year-Around Tax Service throughout my collegiate career. That position allowed me to utilize my analytical skills through data input of corporate financials, as well as solidifying my public relations abilities by means of constant customer interaction.
Even though my resume provides a summary of my background and experiences, I would like to meet with you in person to discuss any available opportunities within your company. I can be reached any time at. I look forward to hearing from you.
