Are you writing a cover letter for a job as an Account Manager? This example can be used as a template for your cover letter. Obviously, this example also works if you want to write a cover letter for a Sales Representative job or a Senior Account Manager job. Remember that Sales cover letters need to be “salesy”, so don’t spare any expenses when talking about yourself and what you’ve done previously.
My name is Andrew James, and I’ve been working as an Account Manager at Spotify in New York City for three years. It’s been a gratifying job where I’ve been in a position to grow over the years, but I am not the type to turn down a new challenge.
When I read about the position as Account Manager at Tesla, it piqued my interest right away. The position, as described, offers exactly the kind of challenge I’ve been looking for.
I’m confident that I can meet, and even exceed, the expectations you have on your new Account Manager.
I would point to three factors in particular that I feel make me the right person for the position as Account Manager.
The first would be my experience. During my three years at Spotify I have acquired a solid foundation of knowledge of the sales process – these are skills that I look forward to developing and putting to good use as a member of your team at Tesla.
Secondly, I feel that my educational background makes me well suited for a job at Tesla. I have a Bachelor’s degree in business from Stanford and I have also completed several sales courses.
Last, but certainly not least, I think that my personal traits and abilities make me the right person for this job. I am a good leader with the ability to suport and motivate my colleagues, and I know that my ability to make connections with others and network effectively has been appreciated by my previous employers.
Furthermore, I am goal-oriented and service-minded in my professional role.
I hope that this brief presentation of who I am has been of interest to you, and that I will be afforded the chance of an interview with you. I am convinced that I would be able to meet and exceed the Tesla’s expectations of an Account Manager, and I would relish the opportunity to prove it.
