Dear Ms. Veal,
I am applying for the Purchasing Officer position with Taylor Smith Consulting and I know that I am the best applicant for this job.
Being responsible for the purchases made by a company is a big responsible but it is one that I am sure I am ready to move into. I am currently working as an assistant to the Purchasing Office with a mid-sized company. I have gained a lot of experience working under this individual but unfortunately, there is no room for advancement with this company, which is why I seek this position with your corporation.
I have gained the skills needed to build a good and long-lasting relationship with vendors and suppliers that will ensure you get the best prices for the goods and merchandise your company purchases. I know how to negotiate and I have great interpersonal skills, which I can use to ensure your company always receives the very best deals on quality purchases.
I have experience dealing with most any issue associated with making purchases that include shortages, defects and receiving the wrong merchandise. I know when to place orders to ensure your company has the goods it needs to maintain continuous operations.
I have experience keeping records of all purchases made and compiling reports for the financial officer and other management professionals to view. I have outstanding leadership skills with the ability to manage your purchasing team in an efficient manner.
You can contact me by calling (555)-555-5555 and I look forward to meeting with you soon to discuss my credentials and the details of this position.
