Helpful Tips for A Good Sales Job Application Letter in Nigeria

  • Start the body of your letter with a good intro’ – a good introduction will capture the interest of the hiring manager. Examples;

a. I humbly apply for the position of a Sales Executive advertised in the Guardian Newspaper dated 29th January 2019.

b. I write to apply for post of a sale representative in your noble establishment

  • Go straight to the point – you need to go straight to the point when writing the body of your sales job application letter. Don’t waste time describing yourself to the hiring managers. It is irrelevant. Once, you waste time describing yourself, chances are that the hiring manager will not read your application letter completely.
  • List all relevant qualifications – this is one of the major important part of your application letter. You need to list all your relevant qualifications. All qualifications should be relevant to the position you’re applying for. Don’t bring in irrelevant certificates or qualifications.
  • Highlight your working experience – this is another important part of your sales job application letter. You must clearly highlight your working experiences especially those relevant to the position you’re seeking for.
  • List all your achievements – every hiring manager will like to see your past job achievements. So, do well to show him/her. This will help prove to him/her if you’re going to make any meaningful contribution or growth to their firm.

PLEASE NOTE: For sales boy, sales girl or sales attendant; relevant qualification, working experiences and achievement might not be strictly needed. This doesn’t mean you should not list or highlight them if you have any; because it will still give you an edge over other candidates seeking for the same position.
