Re: Logistics graduate scheme

I would like to apply for the logistics track of your graduate training scheme, advertised on the Prospects.ac.uk website. As requested, I am enclosing my CV.

I am in the final year of my geography degree, expecting a 2:1. Always intending to have a career in business, I have taken modules on the geography of business and GIS modelling. My final-year dissertation is on changing patterns in retail. During my degree, I have developed my analytical skills and ability to read, manage and present data. I have also become familiar with a range of business intelligence sources.

As you can see from my CV I have experience in:

Retail – moving from shelf stacker to checkout operator to team leader in my two years with Fresh Foods. I contributed to the store consistently being in the top five for the region by providing excellent customer service.
Warehouse operations – picking and packing to meet targets over the busy Christmas period.
I have also:

Worked in and led teams at Fresh Foods, on course projects and in sports.
Communicated with colleagues at all levels in retail and warehousing.
Solved problems as a team leader, ensuring staff cover and dealing with customer complaints.
Worked flexibly doing both early and late shifts and covering for absence, sometimes at short notice.
Managed my time when combining study with work and sport.
My semester in Germany exposed me to a different culture and improved my language skills. In addition, my voluntary work with young people has increased my resilience and ability to mix with people from all walks of life.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Yours sincerely

Dear Mr. Moyle,

As a young and motivated individual I am extremely interested in submitting an application for the advertised Trainee Administrative Assistant position with John Smith and Associates.

In November 2017 I completed my VCE studies and also obtained a Certificate II in Business Administration. This has given me a range of practical capabilities that will meet the needs of this role.

While completing my VCE studies I worked part-time as a Customer Service Assistant for KSmart. My responsibilities in this role included providing face-to-face customer service and assisting on the floor with stock movements and visual merchandising. This position has given me key employability skills while also allowing me to experience working in a professional and fast-paced work environment.

With regard to my ability to meet the specific requirements of this job:

customer service – worked for four years in a face-to-face customer service environment providing customer service at registers, lay-by counter and on the retail floor
reception duties – responsibilities at KSmart included answering incoming phone calls and assisting customers with phone-based enquiries
general administration – Certificate II in Business Administration has provided training in the use of skills including filing, data processing, records management and writing communication.
My teachers and employers have commended me for my high level of interpersonal skills and naturally engaging personality. My motivations include learning new things and the challenge of meeting key objectives. My current and previous managers can be contacted to provide more information about my ability to meet the needs of this job.

I understand that you will receive a large number of applications for this role. I do, however, believe that my motivation, commitment and pre-existing skills will allow me to fit into your work environment and immediately start supporting the needs of your organisation.

I would appreciate the opportunity to meet with you to discuss my application at an interview. I have enclosed a copy of my resume for your consideration. I can be contacted at all times on the details provided above.

Thanking you in advance for your time,

Dear Recruiter,

When I saw the job posting looking for a “Multi-Functional Manufacturing Associate Manager” for Lockheed Martin, I knew I had to submit my resume. I am a hard-working and motivated Operations Manager with over 12 years of leadership experience and am ready for my next adventure! I am currently looking for an opportunity to serve my country again and I know my skills and experiences would be a good fit for the position and the Lockheed Martin team overall.

As you can see from my attached resume, I honorably served six years in the United States Army as a Sergeant and successfully led a team during a 14-month deployment to the Middle East. Having the opportunity to have been in the military has developed and shaped me into the leader I am today. I am currently the Vice President of Operations for a solar manufacturing company in Livermore, CA. I’m responsible for the day-to-day operations of the company, which is spread out between two manufacturing facilities in CA & MI.

I am a team player with excellent communication skills and strong motivation in the workplace. I am also a very detail oriented and an organized individual and believe that every job requires a strong dedication to duty and commitment to ensure that it is carried through to completion. As a result of this mindset and work ethic, I’ve been fortunate enough to hold six different positions within my current company, constantly striving to learn more and achieve the goals of the company.

I believe that my skills and experience make me an excellent match for this position. Thank you for taking the time to review my resume. You can contact me with any questions by emailing me at hello@kickresume.com or by calling me at 9999999999. I look forward to the possibility of discussing this exciting opportunity with you.

Sincerely,

Dear Ms. West:

I was excited to see your opening for a customer service rep, and I hope to be invited for an interview.

My background includes serving as a customer service associate within both call-center and retail environments. Most recently, I worked on the customer service desk for Discount-Mart, where my responsibilities included handling customer merchandise returns, issuing refunds/store credits, flagging damaged merchandise for shipment back to vendors and providing back-up cashiering during busy periods.

Previously, I worked within two high-volume customer-support call centers for a major telecommunications carrier and a satellite television services provider. In these positions, I demonstrated the ability to resolve a variety of issues and complaints (such as billing disputes, service interruptions or cutoffs, repair technician delays/no-shows and equipment malfunctions). I consistently met my call-volume goals, handling an average of 56 to 60 calls per day.

In addition to this experience, I gained considerable customer service skills during my part-time employment as a waitress and restaurant hostess while in high school.

I also bring to the table strong computer proficiencies in MS Word, MS Excel and CRM database applications and a year of college (business major). Please see the accompanying resume for details of my experience and education.

I am confident that I can offer you the customer service, communication and problem-solving skills you are seeking. Feel free to call me at 555-555-5555 (home) or 555-555-5500 (cell) to arrange an interview. Thank you for your time—I look forward to learning more about this opportunity!

Sincerely,
