Dear Ms. King:

As a former retail purchasing agent for a children's clothing company and a woman's casual wear firm, I feel well qualified to apply for the opening you posted for retail purchasing agents on JobBankUSA.com.

I have the experience and the flair for choosing clothing that appeals to the public, is in style, and at a cost that is appropriate for the average buyer. I know I can enhance your store and its image and I look forward to doing so if you select me to hire.

May I come by for an interview and to introduce myself in person? At that time I can show you photos of some of the clothing lines I am responsible for.

Please call me on my cell phone: 888-888-8888 to arrange an interview. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
