Dear Ms. Eunice Coleman,
I would like to express my desire to become an Art Buyer for CCSI, Inc.
This has to be one of the most fascinating jobs in the world and I have a passion for fine art. I have dedicated my life to learning how to recognize quality pieces, know their true value and I have over 15 years of experience buying art.
I have acquired my bachelor’s degree and I make it a priority to stay updated with any new information related to my career. I also have strong negotiating skills and a degree in finances, which is very important for someone in this position. I am computer literate and proficient in using MS Word programs and FileMaker in addition to PC and Mac platforms.
I have the knowledge to identify artists by looking at the pieces and to research the history for any piece that I don’t recognize. I can accurately evaluate the worth of any piece you are interested in buying and I can provide you with references from past employers.
I understand and comply with all of the copyright laws and I know how to ensure the pieces being bought are being sold legally. I am available to work most any hours and I don’t mind traveling to different areas to view art. I can work alone, with an assistant or with a full staff, whichever is required by your company.
I would greatly appreciate the opportunity to come in and talk with you in person. I can be reached at (555)-555-5555 and I look forward to meeting with you.
