Re: Catering Sales Manager

Dear Director:

Every day people gather around tables for seminars and celebrations. I love having a career in catering sales that brings quality and enjoyment to these events.

As manager of your Catering Sales Department, I would sustain high service standards, retain the established clientele, and develop the off-season business.

My ability to talk to a variety of people has resulted in the numerous distinctions that have characterized my career. For my achievements at Combes and Berryman I was awarded a "lifetime membership" in the Caliber Club, an elite group composed of top sales executives.

The recognition that your five-star establishment has earned, coupled with my track record in sales, is a sure combination for excellence. I will contact you Monday to schedule an interview.

Sincerely yours,

Peter Kirkland
