Dear Ms/Mr. Last Name,


I am writing in reference to the advertised post of Retail Sales Assistant position, as published on the website. As a highly motivated student, with strong interpersonal skills, I think my profile fully suits the advertised profile, and therefore I would like to submit my application.


My interpersonal skills I have developed during my college, since I was extensively involved in college community, including student clubs, organization of events, which has allowed me to work more closely with colleagues and various stakeholders inside and outside of the college.


This valuable experience has granted me the opportunity to develop time management skills, and good organizational skills, which I would like to further improve within business environment.


Even though I do not have work experience in business environment, I believe my personal attributes make me suitable for the position of Retail Sales assistant, because:


1.. I am highly motivated person, which I have already demonstrated through volunteering and involvement in extracurricular activities;

  1. I have been developing my customer service skills in liaising with counterparts within and outside college for the benefit of event management;
  2. I am good communicator and experience public speaker, which I have mastered through presentations on my college, and in organization of student related events.
  3. I am result driven person, which is most obvious through my academic performance and grades which I have obtained.
  4. I am familiar with the products and industry of your company, since I have been researching your operations for the benefit of school project, where I have also analysed the sales performance of your major competitors.
