Dear Hiring Manager,

As an avid skater on both blades and wheels, I can't imagine a better job than sharing my enthusiasm with your customers. When I saw your ad in the Boise News for a junior sales associate, I immediately put together the attached resume to send you. Please consider me for the position.

I am available for interviews any day during spring break next week. I'll give you a call to see when you can meet with me.

Thank you!

Andrew Perroni
