Subject: Application for position of Buyer
Dear Mrs. Tilley,
My name is Irene Tilley and I write to introduce myself in answer to your need for a Buyer who knows the home goods industry, has experience in Buying for it, and is passionate about their career. I am that person, and I have a host of other capabilities and qualifications to offer, as outlined in this cover letter and resume.
I have followed your company’s success for many years now, ever since I was in college achieving a B.S. in Fashion and Design from Eastern Nazarene College. After college, I began my career as a Buyer Assistant at Sears Holdings Corp and was responsible for assisting in all facets of the Buying and Allocation industry for the women’s line. From there, after about three years, I was promoted to the Buyer, in which I worked for five years. I am looking to your company, as I know I have the experience in Buying, the knowledge of the home goods industry as a shopper, and the skill set of negotiation, research, and communication skills that you need for success. I am also a great predictor of the market, and know the customer trending through both experience and research methods. I feel all of this makes me a great Buyer for your company.
A copy of my resume is enclosed for your reference along with this cover letter.
