Dear Mr. Beans,
My classmate, Earnest Friend, spoke with you yesterday at University of the Pacific's Career &
Internship Fair. He recommended I contact you regarding a sales internship position. Please accept
my enclosed resume as application for this exciting opportunity with Frito-Lay. I am very
enthusiastic about this internship with your company because of your commitment to innovation
and to environmental responsibility. I am seeking a quality experience in a consumer products
firm and believe I would be an exceptional candidate for a sales internship based on my leadership
skills, my successful sales experience and my excellent academic preparation.
My work experience in sales has allowed me to refine my interpersonal and communication skills.
Among my first jobs, I worked in sales at a tanning salon. I was consistently top in monthly sales,
receiving "employee of the month" designation four times. In my recent position with ABC
Leasing, my success in converting prospects to tenants led my supervisor to encourage me to
continue with the company; however, I had to leave the job to study abroad in Spain. The
experience in Spain allowed me to interact with diverse individuals, improving my Spanish
language and cross-cultural skills.
As a junior at the University of the Pacific working toward a Bachelor’s degree in Marketing, my
curriculum has included a course that gave me a thorough understanding of sales management.
I'm very interested in further developing my skills by applying this knowledge in a sales internship
with your company.
Additionally, I worked to co-found a sales club at Pacific. My co-founder and I have established
our goals, developed a structure and have been active in recruiting new members. Forming a new
club has been challenging, exciting, and personally satisfying. Thanks to the leadership abilities
that were instilled in me during my time in the California Leadership Academy, our efforts have
If invited to join your team, you will find I am a creative, goal-oriented person with the ability to
take initiative and a strong drive to succeed. I am interested in joining your team at Frito-Lay and
would welcome the opportunity to speak with you about my background in greater detail.
