Dear Mr Albert,

Please accept my application for the position of Market Research Interviewer with ABC Research, as advertised in The Sun News on April 29th 2010.

I have been a valued member of the team at STV Telemarketing for the past 2 years, where I have developed exceptional skills in generating leads for our sales team and improving my data entry skills to the extent that I am now the fastest and most accurate member of the team in this field.

I initially began my employment with STV as a telemarketer in 2007, making cold calls to generate leads or make sales for fitness centres, cosmetics consultants, booksellers and telecommunications companies. My Manager was impressed with my friendly and professional phone demeanour and my ability to learn and adhere to the script that had been approved by Management.

In 2009, STV established a Market Research branch and I desired a new challenge and the opportunity to exercise my analysis and statistics knowledge. I also felt it would be a great opportunity to use my strong customer service skills to establish greater trust and communication with call subjects.

I have exceptional interpersonal and communication skills, with the ability to develop a confident and easy rapport with interview subjects. I have a strong caller retention rate, at 45% of weekly calls completing the entire survey, in comparison to the average of 22% for my team.

I have conducted interviews on television viewing habits; political perspectives; attitudes to organic produce; child care quality; and attitudes to public transport. I genuinely love my job and seeing the results of my surveys contributing to vital research reports for public and private companies is highly rewarding. It is my objective to develop my supervision and management skills to be managing and motivating a successful team of market research interviewers within the next two years, and I know that ABC Research has a laudable career development program that would support me in doing so.

I know that I would be a valuable and reliable addition to ABC Research. I look forward to discussing this role with you soon.

Yours sincerely
Katya Pivorava
