Summer Sales Associate Cover Letter

Dear Ms. Paloma,

Please accept my enthusiastic application to the position of Seasonal Sales Associate at your clothing store, Bonita. My passion for customer service, organizational skills and attention to detail make me an ideal candidate for the position.

I believe that every customer deserves exceptional service. As a sales associate at Fashionista clothing store, I provided high quality service to every customer that walked through the doors. I answered fashion questions, provided information on our store’s credit card and assisted customers who wanted to return or exchange items.

As an administrative assistant, I continue to provide customer service, assisting students who have questions about classes and course registration. I love making people’s lives just a little bit easier with my thoughtful and thorough customer service.

You state in your advertisement that you want an employee with strong organizational skills. As secretary for my high school’s volunteer organization, I maintained a detailed, accurate record of our budget. While I was secretary, no funds were ever lost or unaccounted for, and we always had extra money at the end of the school year. My responsibility and organizational skills ensured that we had a healthy budget.

I also have a strong attention to detail. For example, when I ran our volunteer organization’s annual fundraiser, I never let any details slip through the cracks. I assigned specific duties to each volunteer, and even created individualized hourly schedules so everyone knew their assignments on the day of the fundraiser. I know I can apply this detail to a job at Bonita, whether I am running the fitting room or helping a customer open a store account.

My customer service, organization and attention to detail are qualities that would make me an excellent Seasonal Sales Associate.

I have enclosed my resume, and will call in the next week to find a time for us to speak.

Thank you so much for your time and consideration.
