Dear Ms. Ryan:
I am writing to you to inquire about positions in new business development at Frohman Corporation. I am enclosing my resume for your perusal.
I have worked for five years as a district sales manager. During the last two years I have expanded my territory to include 25 new corporate clients. I am confident I can use my skills to contribute to Frohman Corporation's growth. I also have experience in the women's apparel industry. I see from my research that many of your clients are in that industry.
Please contact me at (305) 555-5555 or
