Sample Bookseller Cover Letter

A bookseller cover letter is essential if you wish to land a job in an independent or chain bookstore. Be sure to list your experience, interest in books, sales ability, and working hours. All bookseller cover letters should be specific and complete in order to attract the attention of the hiring manager of the store you wish to join.

Dear Mr. Haggerty:

JobBankUSA.com came up this week as I did a search for a position as a bookseller. It made my day since I am in the market for just such a job, part-time or full-time. The description of duties fits my personality and experience perfectly. I'm a book-a-holic and enjoy helping other people who are as interested in books as I am, find what they are looking for.

Since the holiday season is upon us, I assume your business will grow, since books make such good gifts. Therefore, I can start work right away, if you choose to hire me. I have retail experience and good customer service skills.

Please call me on my cell phone: 785-897-3434 to set up a meeting. I really appreciate your reading this cover letter and giving my resume your attention.
