Dear Mr. Peter Stockmann,
RE: APPLICATION FOR A JOB
I am writing to apply for the job of Shop Assistant in your store. I am a third year student at the University of Lavington, currently pursuing a BS in Business Management. A friend of mine who is an employee at your store suggested the vacant post for me. I believe that with my experience and studies, I am fit to take on the job. Having reached my third year in my university studies, I feel I am ready to take upon greater challenges and responsibilities in my life and I believe working in your store will give me that opportunity.
My decision to take up a summer vacation job in your store is greatly influenced by the post I am currently hold at my university. I hold the position of the Executive in the University Managerial Society. Working in your store is appealing to me as it has a good reputation and offers solid training. It will also provide with me with an opportunity to better my services by understanding and gaining knowledge on how to run the Managerial Society.
While leading the University Managerial Society, I have improved my communication skills and my ability to lead and supervise subordinate staff effectively. I have also learned to work under pressure and to work in a team.
I have worked as a junior staff in various stores here in Pennsylvania that offer similar services. Working in those stores gave me an experience and an in-depth knowledge in how to handle services. I have learned to relate to customers well and to cater to their orders effectively as well as offering recommendable aftersale services. I am a hardworking, conscientious and effective communicator. I am interested in enhancing my skills as a business manager in a store that encourages high standards in personal development. I would gladly appreciate the opportunity to be involved in the management and development of your store.
I will be available to work from the start of the next month. I will be happy to attend an interview at your convenience and send any additional information needed. With my letter, I have attached my resume. I can be contacted anytime on my mobile phone, 955-764-2341 or via my email address, firstname.lastname@example.org.
