As you are no doubt aware, the world of Purchasing Agents is a small one. I was
recently speaking to Dawn Felicidades, a Purchasing Agent who works for you and
she said that an opening has just come up in your Women’s Fashion department. I
am very interested in meeting with you and telling you how I could bring some
very valuable skills and experiences to that department.
For starters, I have been working my way towards a Purchasing Agent in a leading
retail store for most of my career. I studied Fashion Design as an undergraduate in
the Fashion Institute in New York City. Eventually, I chose not to pursue a career as
a designer. However, I did become convinced that the world of fashion and design
was where I would spend my working life.
I began my working career with a job in the Purchasing Department of Goggly
Woggly, a boutique that specializes in teen fashions as an apprentice Purchasing
Agent. It was in that early job that I began to learn the basics of the job, and how
it s much more than simply looking for “cool clothes.” I learned the importance of
the <nancial aspect of the job, the relationship-building with other agents and
reps, and the quantitative research elements of the position.
From Goggly Woggly, I moved into a more senior position as a full->edged
Purchasing Agent at Tricky Licky, a slightly larger retail chain. At Trickly Licky, I
further expanded my skill set into supervising other Agents and developing a
longer-range strategy. Today, after earning Employee of the Year honors twice in
three years, I am ready to take my skillsets to another, larger and more
challenging job. I look forward to a chance to tell you more about it all in person.
Speak to you soon,
