   Overqualified Cover Letter

It is with great excitement that I submit my resume for the salesperson position at XYZ Inc. Having spent three years thoroughly exploring a sales management position at ABC, I am ready and eager to return to my roots and rejoin the sales force.

Being a branch manager has helped me gain a larger perspective on the flow and organization of office supplies sales. My new grasp of client dispersal and marketing tools for small company demographics has honed my instincts on how to close a deal and how to approach new clients. Although I have been in a management position, I found that the supervision role took me too far away from my expertise and my true calling, which is finding, helping, and retaining clients.

In the past twelve years I have worked three positions as a salesperson, and it is where I thrive. When I was a salesperson at DEF, I increased revenue by 5% over eight months, and had the highest retention rate for new clients.

I appreciate your consideration. Thank you for your time.
