Application for the role of Account Executive
I would like to apply for the role of Account Executive which I have seen advertised in (where) and (when).
I am an experienced Account Executive who has run many accounts at once of (what value if known or size) and I enjoy the challenge of taking new accounts and developing these into successful accounts.
I feel that I build up good relationships with people and take the time to listen to their queries or worries and this is all part of learning how to run a good account and have happy clients.
I am very organised and methodical in my working manner; I have excellent communication skills both verbally and in writing and I pay great attention to detail. I like to make sure that I get things right first time and do not allow myself to make mistakes.
I enjoy working with others and have had some experience in training junior colleagues and teaching them skills that I have learnt over the years. I am now looking for a fresh challenge in a new industry and feel that this role would be right for me.
I have enclosed my CV which shows in detail my experiences and if you are interested please do not hesitate to contact me.
I look forward to hearing from you.
Good luck. Let us know if you need this letter sample in any other format such as PDF, Doc.
