Dear Prospect Employer,
Nowhere will you find someone with the vast experience that I have. I have been everything from just an employee to being a successful business owner at times. The only reason why I( don't still own a business is because of market changes and the profit margin in the computer industry decreased by over 1000% during a period of only about 5 years.
With over 2 decades experience in sales and marketing plus the extensive contact with consumers and business owners gives me the ability to be able to converse effectively with people from all walks of life. With the great telephone voice that I have has permitted me to be exceptional with people on the telephone and I am a big believer in using the phone while marketing.
In time I plan on eventually finishing my Bachelors degree as well as the possiblity of going for my Masters degree. Besides what I have learned in school I am self taught in computer networking, computer troubleshoot, and computer programming..
The next step for you to be able to better determine my wealth to you would be in a personal interview.
