Dear Mrs. Thrower,
I recently saw your listing in the Chicago Tribune for a Procurement Specialist and I would like put myself forward for this opening. My resume has been attached to this document for your perusal and convenience. You will see by scanning it that I do have the experience and qualifications that you have posted that you are seeking.
My education includes completion of the Procurement Association of America program and I am considered a Certified Procurement Professional. On top of that, I have logged more than ten years in the industry with the first five being in the general division and the other five being in the technical field. I understand how difficult it is for companies who need to have the best in technology but who do not always have the budget to fill these needs.
It is important for any company to have the best equipment that they can afford and this is where I come in. I will bring vendors with me that offer the best pieces at very competitive prices. I have never gone under budget nor offered any item that was not top of the line.
For this reason, I feel that a meeting would be in your best interest. I can be reached by calling me at (555)-555-5555. I am looking forward to speaking to you further about my qualifications.
