Dear Mr. Adams:

I present myself as an extremely qualified individual for the position of an Assistant Manager at K-Mart. You will see from my performance track record that I have been involved in a number of strategically planned activities that have been absolute successes as far as the retail world is concerned and I would now like to bring this expertise to your organization.

At Brooks Brothers, which is my present place of employment, I have had the opportunity to cultivate a positive work environment with a great focus on client development and sales generation. I believe that in order to maximize sales, one has to demonstrate legendary customer service practices and I have been working successfully on this theory for years now. Moreover, I had been accountable for running a tight and efficient staff for over a decade which has resulted in excellence in a number of areas including workplace management, meeting sales targets and ensuring an exciting shopping experience for customers.

At K-Mart, I am quite positive that I will be able to do more as I see this organization to be more conducive to retail success. With my expertise, I am positive that I have much to contribute to this chain. It would be a good idea to meet and discuss further what I have in mind if hired at this position and will endeavor to make an appointment with your office soon. In the meantime, I can be contacted at (002) 222-2222.

Thanks a lot for your consideration.
