Subject: Application for position of Retail Store Manager
Dear Mrs. Davis,
I know that you are looking for a qualified Retail Store Manager for your store, Adidas Group. As I have been a shopper for many years at your store, as well as worked in this role for over six years; I know I would make a suitable candidate for this exciting position. I have included my resume with cover letter so that you could see for yourself.
As you can see by my resume, I have been a successful, profit winning Retail Store Manager for the past six years at one of your competitors: Dollar General Corp. In that position, I was responsible for all operational, financial, visual, motivational, and human resources issues as a whole 24-7; and have nothing but shining achievements to offer as a result. Our store has consistently gained recognition for exceeding sales expectations, winning sales contests, and offering the most well groomed store to shop in. My staff has been hired, trained, and motivated by me; and I lead by example. The reason that I am seeking to become a Retail Store Manager at your company, is quite frankly, because I love your products-more than I have ever with my present employer. Though I can sell anything, I figure why not sell something I am passionate about?
Please review this cover letter and resume, and then contact me.
