Sample Purchasing Manager Cover Letter

A purchasing manager cover letter lets the hiring manager know the applicant is good with people, able to handle a large volume of calls, handle e-mails and internet searches, complete correspondence in a timely manner and respond to details that may arise at the last moment. All purchasing manager cover letters should include specific information such as this in order to set the applicants apart from others competing for the job.

Hiring Manager

Dear Mr. Lukens:

Your posting on JobBankUSA.com for a purchasing manager caught my eye. I am looking for just such a position. I was one of two purchasing managers for my previous employer, Quick Food, Inc. located in Minneapolis, Minnesota. This work suits my personality, my experience, and my ability to handle the daily flow of Internet and paper correspondence, filing, phone calls, and other details associated with purchasing.

Would you like to meet to talk over the position you are offering and to see if I meet your requirements? If so, please call me on my cell phone: 456-777-8989 to set up a date and time that works for you. I appreciate your reading my cover letter.
