Attn: To Whom It May Concern

Dear Sir or Madam:

I am looking for a career. I want to give my maximum effort to a company I can help grow and be successful. I want to work hard and go home smiling, knowing we moved a little closer to the goal today. When I graduated from Texas A&M, I took the first job that allowed me independence and a reasonable lifestyle. I learned the industry, met my share of success, and concluded wine and liquor distribution was not where I wanted to be. As I transitioned into manufacturing, I found an industry and a company that I could believe in. I had a job that challenged me, one that I could do well and found to enjoy as I moved upward within the company. It was very easy to see myself staying there for the remainder of my professional life. Unfortunately, situations change, and I determined it was necessary to make a change to return to Texas. I am a newlywed, and my wife is an attorney licensed to practice in Texas. Her license and my desire to be in Texas dictate I return. I now have nine years sales and management experience as well as a degree in marketing and a desire to make a difference in a company I can respect.

Given an opportunity, I believe I can do much more for you than I am asked to do today. I grew up in a business atmosphere where rewards are earned by effort. I realize your industry may be different, but the principles that lead to success are universal. I have not spent so many years in one industry that I cannot move easily to another. Let me show you what I can do.

Thank you for your time and consideration.
