Mr. Quincy Simpson
New York, NY 11111
Dear Mr. Simpson:
If you are searching for a pharmaceutical sales representative with the ability to maximize sales within an
assigned territory, we should speak. Currently a loan officer, it is my goal to leverage my relationship-building
and strategic-sales skills to transition from the mortgage industry to the pharmaceutical sales sector.
I started contemplating this career change after graduating from Brooklyn College with a bachelor's degree in
biology in 2004, but I wanted to take steps to prepare for the transition. In the last few years, I have been
mentoring under an experienced pharmaceutical sales rep (who currently works for ABC Co.), and studying
pharmaceutical product lines across various therapeutic classes. Armed with this industry research and
product foundation, I am confident that I would be a successful rep for XYZ Corporation.
I also developed skills in the mortgage industry that are relevant to pharmaceutical sales. The loan process is
highly consultative, and I demonstrated strengths in building positive relationships, offering excellent
customer service and coaching clients throughout the process. Always focused on exceeding production
goals, last year I:
► Originated and closed $8.5 million in residential loans.
► Held "Top Loan Originator" honors for the NY region.
► Earned "Top Producer" ranking for GHI Loan Company, sourcing a partnership that enabled a new
product offering (no-income-verification loans).
You should know that I love selling, meeting new people and aggressively following up on all leads. I am also
very comfortable using medical terminology and interacting with healthcare professionals. If you agree that I
would make a positive addition to your team, please call me at 718-555-5555 (
