Western Regional Manager

Denver, CO 80209
NuTraders has an exciting future, and I would like to help the Institutional Services division skyrocket to a market-dominant position in the West.
NuTraders’ new offerings put the company in a short-term position of market advantage. To seize this advantage requires a “hit the ground running” sales approach. As we discussed, my experience with Schwab closely parallels your new Western Sales Manager position. I know the market… I know the key players… I know the industry and the products… and I have the experience and track record to deliver both immediate revenue results and sustainable long-term growth.
With the right person at the helm, the first-year goal of $100 million in sales is easily reachable. I believe I am that person. I hope you agree.
As you requested, I am attaching a list of professional references, and I will follow up with you on April 6 to see whether you have any additional questions. Thank you for sharing so much time and information with me this week; I am inspired by your enthusiasm and am eager to play a part in building a strong Western Region for NuTraders.

I know how busy you are, and I am extremely grateful that you were willing to share some time with me on Monday.
I realize that you do not have an opening for me at this time, but I am very interested in joining the Armanda team. From my research, backed up by what you told me on Monday, it is a great fit for not only my skills and expertise, but my preferred work style as well. There is nothing that motivates me more than a tough challenge and a tight deadline!
As you suggested, I will touch base with you in about a month to see whether things have changed.
In the meantime, if there is any way that I can be of help to you, please let me know.

The information you shared at our meeting today was extremely helpful, and I am very grateful.
I appreciate that you will keep me in mind for a project leadership role with your company. I am quite willing to start on an interim, as-needed basis; I am sure I will be able to prove very quickly that I offer great value to your firm and your clients.
In particular, Bob, your upcoming work for Bedrock Systems is very close to my experience with Apex. As you will recall, I led a reengineering project with the purchasing department to bring activities and initiatives in line with the company’s strategic goals. The results were remarkable ($4 million in cost savings in 18 months) and are directly related to Bedrock’s current needs and challenges.
I will keep in touch, Bob, and hope you will call on me if there is some way I can be of help.

Ms. Martha T. Randolph
Director of Human Resources Astar Corporation
1200 Commerce Drive
Atlanta, GA 16385
I wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed my recent trip to Astar Corporation and the opportunity to interview for the position of Engineering Manager. The day was certainly an informative one, and I appreciated the chance to meet with you and the other members of the interview team who all did such an excellent job of helping me to understand both the requirements of the position and Astar’s work environment.
The position as Engineering Manager of your Pneumatic Products Division sounds like a challenging opportunity, and I wanted to reiterate my strong interest in this position.
In my discussions with Tony, he mentioned the primary thrust of this position; over the next two to three years will be the technology transfer of six new products which are critical components of the Company’s business strategy. Technology transfer is, of course, an area where I have considerable experience, and I know I could be of real help to Astar in successfully bringing these products to market quickly.
Additionally, I feel I could provide meaningful assistance with your efforts to implement a corporatewide TQM program, since I was a key member of the corporate steering committee instrumental in implementing a highly successful TQM program here at Winston Company.
Again, Martha, I appreciated the opportunity to visit Astar Corporation. Please pass along my sincere “thanks” to the other members of the interview team who helped make the day such an enjoyable and informative one.
I look forward to hearing from you shortly.

Mr. Irvin D. Bronstein
Manager of Corporate Accounting
Sampsonite Company, Inc.
1525 Executive Row
Claymore Business Park
Wilmington, DE 65291
Thanks for the opportunity to visit with you this past Wednesday to discuss the position of Senior Tax Accountant on the Corporate Accounting Staff. I certainly appreciated your hospitality.
Since it captures so much of my technical strengths and professional interests, the position of Senior Tax Accountant, as described during my visit, is of great interest to me, and I would welcome the chance to further explore this opportunity with you.
Reflecting on our conversation, it would appear that I have most of the key qualifications you seek. In particular, my intimate knowledge of the tax aspects of the Alpha General Ledger System should prove additive to your efforts to painlessly launch this new general ledger system in October of next year. My background in international tax, especially in Europe, should also prove quite beneficial to Sampsonite’s plans to start new ventures in both Germany and the U.K. I can certainly help you avoid some of the major and costly pitfalls from the tax standpoint.
All in all, I feel I have the necessary background and skills to be quite successful in the position of Senior Tax Accountant and would hope that you view my candidacy favorably. I am certain that I can make a real contribution to your organization.
Thanks again, Irvin, and I look forward to hearing from you shortly.
