Dear Ms. Cheryl Andrews,
I am applying for the position of Fashion Assistant Buyer at Dressbarn, Inc.
I have a bachelor’s degree in business administration and I understand how this industry works. I have also worked three years for a wholesale company where I negotiated contracts and worked with a variety of retailers.
I have always been into fashion and I continue to keep up with the latest trends and new designs. I have several excellent connections with other professionals within the fashion industry. They help to keep me updated on which fashion styles are getting the most attention and I make time to visit fashion shows to see how others are responding to the new options available.
I have outstanding research and negotiating skills with the ability to review different suppliers to ensure that you receive the best quality merchandise for the best possible prices. My goal is to ensure your business offers an outstanding clothing line that draws in the customers and that ensures you a profit.
I have the ability to keep up with inventory and to evaluate sales reports to determine which fashions are the most popular and to place new orders when needed. I pay close attention to detail and I have experience setting up displays that will help to encourage sales.
I enjoy working in this fast paced, ever-changing environment and I love to travel, so I am well suited for this position. I also have outstanding decision-making skills and the ability to back up my decisions with proof that I made a good deal.
Please call (555)-555-5555 to arrange an interview.
