Dear Mr. Smith:

I am responding to your advertisement in The City Tribune on March 28, 201?, regarding the Pharmaceutical Representative position. Please find enclosed my resume showing my education, experience, and back ground.

I have over seven years experience in the sales and marketing field, and three years experience as a licensed practical staff nurse. Throughout my sales and marketing career I won several top sales awards, and trained other sales representatives in specific sales techniques in order to increase their sales. I enjoy working with the public, especially demonstrating products and educating others in their uses. I would excel at pharmaceutical sales because I find sales a challenging and rewarding career. My nursing background offers an advantage in better understanding the products I would sell.

I look forward to meeting with you to discuss my qualifications for this position. I am available for an interview at a mutually convenient time. I can be reached at 541-555-9876 or at the above email address. I will contact you next week to follow-up and see if you have any questions. Thank you for your time and consideration.
