Introduction

Dear Sir/Ma’am, I am a Sales and Marketing professional. Given the chance I would like to show how industrious and diligent an employee I can be and how I can be an asset to any team. Marketing and Sales is innate to me. I’ve devoted more than 10 years of my professional life and worked for numerous organizations , the last being with Qatar Foundation (QF), a large organization based in Doha as a multimedia specialist but bulk of my role focused on nurturing relationships with internal and external customers for the QF Media Center/Communication Directorate. I oversaw the overall sales push for QF Radio. Prior to Qatar Foundation, I was involved in sales and brand management with my previous posts requiring me to generate new customers and nurturing existing accounts for the organizations’ products and services. For IQRA , an education materials trading company, I oversaw the Sales and Marketing for the city of Doha, Qatar ensuring all educational institutions in my area were covered and their requirements/orders serviced. For Premier Wines, I handled the Makati area of Metro, Manila and ensured all dealers, distributors and outlets are well taken cared off and all sales and marketing strategies were implemented. My past roles may not fit the bill exactly but assure you with my work tenacity, diligence and passion I know I can be a true asset to your team if given the opportunity. If you want someone who will work hard, someone who is passionate and will go the extra mile, I am your man. I am not afraid to get my hands dirty, I am the type of person who will not just sit and tell people what to do, I want to be part of the action and be one with the team. I’ve also managed and handled countless events in my career and I am quite adept in over-seeing events management from Ingress to Egress. For QF I oversaw all the events planning and management for all the outdoor events and broadcast coverage for QF Radio. I am a Sales and Marketing allrounder. In my more than 10 years of work experience I believe I have a lot to offer your good organization. I hold an open work visa valid until August 2018 and can be extended for another 2 years. If given the opportunity to be part of your team I can immediately expedite my residence application. All I request that I be given a chance to prove myself and how I can be an asset to your organization. I hope to be granted an interview to further showcase myself, give you and your team a better idea of the many facets I can offer your kind organization. Again, thank you very much and I wish you and your team all the best. Respectfully yours, Ben Tantengco
