Example

I know that you are one of the leading communication providers in Ireland. You began as Esat Digifone in Ireland in 1996 and are now part of Telefónica Europe which has its head quarters in Spain and is one of the largest telecommunications companies in the world, with a presence in 25 countries. O2 has over 1.7 million customers and are based in Dublin and Limerick, and have over 80 stores. As a communications company you are committed to doing the best for your employees, your customers and the communities you are based in. I am very interested in communications and sales and would love to be part of a company as exciting and progressive as yours.
