Dear Mr. Murdoch,
I was pleased to see your online post for an Assistant Manager recently. Aside from my passion for the Retail industry, I also offer seven years’ experience working in a retail setting, and the skills to successfully manage a store for success.
Briefly, I have worked in the Retail industry for over seven years, with the last five of this being an Assistant Manager. In this role, I ensured that projected sales goals not only, met company requirements every quarter; but also, exceeded them up to 50%. I was responsible for merchandising, assisting in training/hiring staff, and various loss preventative measures. For these reasons, as well as my ability to work well as a team, interact with people, and sell the store’s product line.
Thanks so much for your consideration and time. Please contact me for an opportunity to discuss this position at [email] and (555)-555-5555. I look forward to your response.
