Please accept my application for a part-time Retail Salesperson position at
Anywhere Fashion. I believe you will find me to be an enthusiastic person who understands
the importance of providing good customer service.
In a recent cooperative education placement, I had the opportunity to talk to
customers over the phone and provide them with information in a friendly and professional
manner. I was often the first contact so I knew it was important to be cheerful and project
a positive image of the company. As a retail salesperson at Anywhere Fashion, I would
work hard to serve the needs of your customers and make them feel comfortable in the
Working in a restaurant also helped me understand the importance of being a team
player. In a busy environment, we had to work together to figure out which tasks we had
to do first and listen carefully to the manager’s instructions. I have been complimented on
being a respectful and reliable co-worker who works well in a team.
I would welcome the chance to discuss how my experience fits with the needs of
