Never begin your letter with To Whom It
May Concern. Do your research and find
out to whom the letter should be addressed.

As an avid skier since the age of three, I was very excited to see your
advertisement in this weeks Independent for a sales position in your
store. I believe I have a great deal of enthusiasm and expertise to bring
to Skis and Stuff.

I know the importance of the right equipment for safety and comfort.
Last winter, I was a ski instructor at Glen Eden, and had to help my
students fit rental boots and skis. This experience will help me assist
customers in fitting their equipment.

Although skiing is my passion, I am also very active in extracurricular

activities. I am the treasurer of my high schools student council and
am comfortable handling money and keeping accounts. As treasurer, I
look for ways to ensure we dont lose money at school events. Last year,
for example, I had the ticket sales for our spring dance moved from the
second floor office to the school foyer, and within a few days we had sold
all the tickets. Im also a member of my schools public speaking club
and enjoy speaking with audiences large and small. Finally, I have been
studying French since Grade 4 and would be happy to assist customers
in this language.

I believe I will make an excellent salesperson at Skis and Stuff, and

look forward to meeting with you to further discuss my suitability for
this position. I can be contacted at 905-555-2457 any time to arrange
an interview.
