Dear Ms. Cummings:
During a recent visit to Rochester, my longtime friend Francis Williams mentioned your name as a contact in the field of auto sales. I understand that your corporation has contracted Francis's agency several times to promote your regional dealerships. I would like to take this opportunity to ask for any assistance or, ideally, consideration you might be able to provide with my job search.
Due to recent downsizing, I am seeking a new, long-term association with an aggressive, fast-paced dealership. As detailed on my attached resume, during the past eight years, my positions have ranged from salesperson to sales manager with a high-volume dealership. My expertise is in developing, training, motivating, and managing top-producing sales teams in highly competitive markets. I have established and continually maintained a record of achievement as Salesperson of the Month and Salesperson of the Year for generated sales and margin of profit.
I will be visiting the Rochester area next week, and I would like to meet with you if your schedule permits. Your insight into the market, as well as any specific advice or contact names, would be very helpful. I will call your office next Monday to see if we can find a convenient time to meet. In advance, thank you for your counsel and, if one of your dealerships would find my candidacy worthy, for your consideration.
