Dear Mr./Ms. Jones,
I read about your firm's retail management training program in Retail World magazine yesterday. The program has received accolades from some of the most prominent names in the retailing field. Since I am very interested in a career in retail management, this opportunity is one that intrigues me.
I would like to hear more about the company and specifically the way that the training program prepares retail specialists.
My degree is in retail management from XYZ University. To help pay for my education, I have worked as a retail sales associate at GGG Electronics for four years. The goal of our company is to help bring the older generation into the computer and electronic age. To that end, I must be extremely patient with our customers and guide them towards a purchase that will not only do what they want it to, but also a product that they can learn to use themselves.
My resume itemizes a number of different aspects of my educational and on-the-job experience. Please feel free to call my cell phone at 1-000-000-0000. I would be pleased to come in for an interview.
Thank you for your consideration.
