Dear Ms. Giles,
I am applying for the position of Purchaser with Marriott International, Inc.
I have attached my resume with a detailed look at my credentials but here are some of the highlights that make me a great candidate for this position. I have a degree in marketing and two years of experience working as a purchaser along with the skills needed to be a great asset to your company.
My experience includes finding the best suppliers based on quality and price, acquiring bids for the merchandise and preparing purchase orders. I have learned how to maintain a good relationship with suppliers and to stay updated on their production schedules and changes that may affect your company.
I have the ability to stay updated with all of the current market trends and average cost for merchandise, including the cost of shipping and transporting goods. This helps to ensure your company is getting the best deal for the purchases made.
My knowledge includes reviewing applications for goods and services to determine if the terms of the contracts are acceptable based on budget and the needs of the company. I am also aware that many items are seasonal and that there are often unexpected delays. I know how to compensate for these issues by timing out when to buy products to get the best price and to avoid problems with delays.
I hope that you will consider me for this position and I look forward to meeting with you in person. You can reach me by calling (555)-555-5555.
