Dear Ms. Alexander,
I am applying for the job as a Procurement Officer now available with MHN Government Services 7012.
I possess a bachelor’s degree in Accounting and I have held this position for the last three years with a well established company in the area. During this time, I have gained extensive knowledge pertaining to purchasing materials and other goods directly from manufacturers.
My experience includes supervising the purchases made by the company to ensure they are receiving the best quality for the best price. It is also my job to approve invoices and payments made to vendors and to handle and resolve any issues associated with business expenses.
My duties involve handling administrative issues such as reviewing company procedures and policies and making revisions when necessary. I also represent the corporation at meetings and conferences where I deliver presentations and speeches on behalf of the company.
I possess excellent decision making skills and the ability to do the research needed to obtain the best price for all the purchases made but especially for any expensive or difficult purchases. I have outstanding verbal and written communication skills and negotiation skills with the ability to create and maintain a great working relationship with suppliers and vendors.
I have an outstanding reputation for being dependable, trustworthy and one of the best Procurement Officers in the area. My resume has a more comprehensive look at my skills, training and experience. I have also provided references that will confirm my reputation.
I look forward to meeting with you soon and you can reach me for an interview by calling (555)-555-5555.
