Dear Ms Graham,
My name is Maxine Curry and I am interested in your current vacancy for a Sales Assistant.
I see your position as a unique opportunity to work for a reputable company that can offer its employees career opportunities that are second to none. My eventual career goal is to become a retail store manager, therefore I would ideally like to work for a company like yours that can offer me future career progression into store management.
About me, I’m a recent Marketing graduate from the University of Coventry who is looking to secure a Sales Assistant position where I can further my real world experience. I have an authentic style, that when combined with my natural curiosity and warm way with people, make me a world class communicator. On an individual level, I not only work well with others, but am also someone who is able to use their own initiative to see through tasks. On a personal level I am articulate, well-dressed and always have a positive attitude.
Furthermore, I would also like to mention that what my attached CV cannot illustrate is my self-motivation, enthusiasm and ability to be a positive team player. In addition to this I have a great attitude towards customers, excellent manners, and am willing to do anything to ensure the smooth running of a store.
With my present employer, where I have been working for the last three years, I am responsible for maximising sales through comprehensive product knowledge, excellent presentations, effective stock replenishment and being able to start conversations with customers in a casual way. I am also involved in processing returns in line with company procedures, and on a slightly different note, am also willing to cover at short notice the holiday and sickness leave periods of other staff.
I would very much welcome a personal meeting with you to discuss your needs and my ability to meet them. My schedule is flexible and I am available for interview during the day, evening and at the weekend.
