Dear Ms. Harris:
The accompanying resume is presented for your review and consideration for an entrylevel/ trainee position with International Paper Distribution's Human Resources Department.
Although not yet defined, this position will take advantage of my ability to learn quickly, easily grasp complex concepts, assume increased levels of responsibility, and complete assignments independently or as part of a team with a high level of performance.
I offer a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology along with seven years of experience working in increasingly responsible store-management positions while attending school full time. In my current position as Assistant Manager with Bagel Cafe, my primary responsibilities are centered on overseeing day-to-day store operations in areas of customer service, vendor relations, inventory control, regulatory compliance, and staff supervision.
In 1999, I was selected by management to assist with the revamping of personnel management practices involving 12 full- and part-time employees. Utilizing my academic knowledge and prior experience, I successfully redefined job descriptions and responsibilities, provided hands-on training, and implemented new policies and procedures resulting in a more structured and supportive workplace where employees currently enjoy incentives to work hard and maintain their terms of employment.
It is with your organization that I hope to contribute in the same vein. Therefore, I would welcome the opportunity to meet with the appropriate managers to discuss the possibility of my joining your organization's team of Human Resources professionals. Thank you for your review and consideration. I look forward to speaking with you soon.
