Dear Ms Jones

Re: Retail Assistant and Relief Store Manager position, Ref: FR872

Please accept this letter and the accompanying resume as my application for the position of Retail Assistant and Relief Store Manager advertised in the The Age. I have more than three years' experience in Fashion retail, a career path I wish to pursue as I follow fashion trends religiously, enjoy the store environment, and thrive on helping customers find what they want.

While working in the women's fashion department of a department store and at a fashion boutique, I provided outstanding customer service, resolved disputes, trained new staff members and assisted management with stock merchandising. Feedback from store managers was that I had demonstrated an excellent understanding of selling principles and the five-step approach to customer service. I was praised for my ability to work with others and was given the responsibility of organising merchandise and stock inventories while working for DressMe.

My inhouse training in retail security, loss prevention, OH&S and merchandising has complemented skills learned in my Certificate III in Retail Operations, recently completed through TAFE. This qualification recognises that I have successfully acquired skills in customer service, merchandising and product management, and that I have a solid knowledge of retail policies and processes.

I have a strong record of contributing to team projects and ideas: in my work and during secondary school. For example, I was captain of The Bouncers basketball team and enjoyed contributing to team projects such as the Year 12 Yearbook committee and charity fundraiser days.

I believe my skills and experience can contribute to the smooth running of Fashionista's Collins Street retail store and I am excited about the opportunity to contribute to the success of your retail brand generally.

Yours sincerely

Your cover letter is like a professional sales proposal to market your skills, knowledge and experience in the best possible light. Your prospective employers want and demand for the cover letter to be tailored to the job advertisement they have open.

 

Timely Tip – If you’re scouting around the web picking up ideas on how to write your cover letter, we’d strongly recommend that you dramatically change anything you copy from the Melbourne Resumes website, as there’s a good chance that other candidates have copied from exactly the same cover letter samples and resume templates.

You don’t want to come across as looking like every other candidate……so write in your own style or contact Melbourne Resumes on 1300 979 890 for quote.  Our cover letter writing services start from just $150 for a high quality professional cover letter.

Employers see it as a dead give away if you have just used a generic cover letter to send your resume in. It screams that you aren’t that interested, but you thought you better send in a job application, just in case.

Many candidates overlook the importance of the cover letter, and just send out one generic cover letter to every job they apply for. This is a big mistake that may be costing them dearly. Don’t be like the herd of people that are generally lazy!

You cover letter needs to be presented in the same format that your resume or CV is formatted. We suggest you use open block format and use a professional and narrative writing style.

Your opening statement should grab the attention of the reader immediately within the first sentence. It should speak to the reader and tell them exactly why you are the ideal person for the job.

It should address each of the criteria listed in the job advert or in the job description, so the recruiter and/or hiring manager can clearly see that you have taken the effort to articulate exactly why you are definitely worth an interview.

Finally, a great cover letter will ensure that your resume is not only read but read in the best possible context, draw attention to the most relevant parts of your resume and make it clear why you should be interviewed!

Take the time to tailor your cover letter, or have a professional cover letter written for you.

If the job is worth applying for, then it’s worth writing a letter to tell them why you believe you are the best candidate for the job.
