Introduction

To Whom It May Concern: I am currently in the last step of completing a Bachelor of Business majoring in Marketing and International Business at AUT University - Auckland, New Zealand and have just moved to Brisbane, Australia. As a requirement to complete my degree I am required to work overseas hence my arrival in Brisbane, however I hope to continue working and living outside of New Zealand furthering my career, developing my skills and offering my expertise and insight that I have gained over the last 7 years at work. As long as I can remember my passion has been in marketing and selling an idea, product or service in which I have the ability to build brand equity and awareness. I feel that I have a natural ability to construct creative and unique strategies to convince people that they should choose the product or service that I am recommending and what benefits they will gain. Through my work for a promotions company, I developed my ability to initiate and foster robust relationships with people whilst coordinate teams at events. My work in sales and marketing with Genesis Communications (a Motorola Solutions Channel Partner) in my current position as the Marketing Manager has further developed my skill sets and knowledge in marketing, sales and advertising. Working in this role has allowed me to develop new ideas, strategies and skills that are useful in a highly competitive market. Having worked with technological products from Motorola Solutions, Vertex, ICOM and so on have opened me up to a whole other industry. Being able to market and sell networks, solutions, and services as well as actual goods, in a market where every client has different needs and wants has broadened my skills immensely. Industries such as these require more work than most with much planning and can ensure that this will benefit other organisations. I am a very determined individual who has won 5 national titles in a number of sports, which I believe shows my determination for success as well as dedication and focus to a goal. I believe marketing for this company would come naturally to me and I would love the chance to show my enthusiasm in building brand awareness and equity. I am highly regarded within in my company and by ANZ - Motorola Solutions. I am a very capable individual that believes they will benefit the this organization and add value to the team and company as well as learn and develop on a whole becoming a more effective and efficient employee. I have attached my CV to support my application. It shows that I would bring important skills to a position including: • High level of social skills including relationship building and pushing sales • Up to date studies in Marketing and International Business • Experience in marketing for a Motorola Solutions Channel Partner, Genesis Communications Ltd. • Basic knowledge and background in graphic design. • Sporting knowledge and background My mixed passions, knowledge, study and experience in varied industries have come from hard work and now I would love to put my skills that I can offer into practice and look forward to hearing back from you. Please feel free to contact me any time via email or Monday-Sunday. Yours sincerely, Simon Erickson aulfield
