Dear Mr/ Mrs Recruiters

I am my current employment as a Sales and service engineer for ABB Ltd for DM and Process automation Equipment, I have successfully reintroduced ABB’s Product® to the major Mining plants in DRC as a leading brand. As a sales engineer I feel that my biggest strengths are my ability to grow revenue per customer as well as retaining existing clients by motivating local sales teams and ensuring they focus on the needs of our target audience.

I would welcome an opportunity for a personal interview to discuss your organization’s needs and the results you can expect from me in addressing those needs. Please feel free to contact me so we can arrange an interview time that fits your busy schedule.

In the meantime thank you for reviewing my application and I look forward very much to hearing from you.
Yours sincerely
