Mr. Robert Thompson
883 Central Avenue
Irving, TX 65774
Dear Mr. Thompson:
7+ years of productive work experience as a retail customer service representative with MACY’s supplemented with track record of delivering high quality customer services qualify me to be your next retail customer service representative.
Longevity of working with a single employer throughout my career speaks highly of my dedication and commitment. However, I thrive on challenge and would like to expand my CSR experience in sales of skincare products into more versatile merchandising industries. My enclosed resume highlights some professional accomplishments I have to my credit which back my claim of being not only a suitable but the ideal candidate for your announced vacancy.
Throughout my career, my supervisors have highly applauded my persuasive skills and profound ability to grasp the exact demands and preferences of clients; and also to cater for the same. I look forward to utilize all the above mentioned skills and competencies for Fred’s Mart straightaway upon hiring.
I would welcome an opportunity to see you in person and discuss the prospect in further detail. I shall give you a follow up call on Wednesday and possibly at that time you could communicate an interview appointment that suits your schedule. In the interim, my resume is enclosed and I’m available to answer any queries you may have about my background and qualifications at (003) 444 – 5555.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
