As a sales representative, it’s important that you understand your industry, show you can meet quotas, work with a sales team, and understand how to craft a sales pitch. A great place to show an employer that you can do all of these tasks is through a sales representative cover letter. Here’s how you can write a better cover letter for your next job application.
Even if you already have a sales representative resume, it’s still a good idea to write a professional cover letter to go along with it. During your job search, you’ll likely be competing against many job seekers, some of whom may have similar qualifications. A strong cover letter helps you stand out by giving more context to your skills and accomplishments and giving you the chance to explain how your abilities fit the role. Use the ResumeHelp cover letter builder to create your cover letter more effectively.
Cover letters should usually be around three-quarters of a page long. This is long enough for you to explain all the reasons you’re the right person for the job, but not so long that it takes a hiring manager’s patience.
If you don’t have much formal experience in a given industry, you can still use this cover letter as an example. Remember, recruiters are looking for relevant experience. For you, this may include something like experience at a sales-adjacent job, a demonstrated ability to interact and work with others from a different position, educational experience through an MBA, or something else.
