Letter To Prospective Employer


Dear Sir/Madam,

I am currently looking for a challenging opportunity in the marketing arena. I am a qualified Computer Engineer with a Graduate Diploma of Business in Marketing and Master of Business Administration from Edith Cowan University in Perth, Australia.

During my marketing training, I have studied a wide spectrum of topics concerning development of successful marketing strategies. I have surveyed in depth, marketing practices in today's turbulent environment, their development and implementation, issues related to marketing, and use of latest technology, like Internet, in marketing.

I am an engineer who readily grasps technical details and I am proficient in the use of computers. I have developed several Internet sites where I express my views about current marketing and management issues. By means of this medium I also provide students and businesses free advice related to marketing which obviously makes me learn more.

In the past two and a half years, besides tertiary studies, I have honed my marketing skills by relevant experience in India.

Working as Territory Manager - Channel Sales Division I have gained valuable experience in sales arena. Working as a Marketing Researcher, The Boshe Group and Stanilite Electronics Pty Ltd. have gained valuable experience in marketing research. In that position I assisted the company in making market entry decisions. In addition I have prepared market planning information for various tender responses and have assisted in overall preparation of tender material. This combination has fully prepared me for a career in marketing.

In summary, I believe that my studies, work experience and personal qualities equip me as a strong candidate for any marketing position you may have available. Thank you for taking the time to consider me for any available position. Looking forward to hearing from you in the near future.

Yours Sincerely,
Gurpreet Singh Sehgal.
