Summary

My determination, various experience and passion to learn and advance in the fashion industry make me an ideal candidate for a position with your company.

After interning in the fashion department at Cosmopolitan magazine, I learned a great deal about the editorial aspect of the industry. From there, I assisted the leading sales associate in the company at the Christian Dior boutique, which only gave me more knowledge and insight to the fast paced, exciting atmosphere of fashion. I am a very motivated, eager worker and am seeking a challenging and rewarding opportunity. 

In my previous positions, I have been involved with both projects and sales from start to finish.  Whether it be requesting a clothing sample for a fashion spread or helping a client select looks from the upcoming collection, I always put forth my best effort with an enthusiastic approach. I was responsible for tasks such as but not limited to: tracking clothing samples; organizing the closet daily; completed computer-related work using Microsoft Office; and various other duties such as mail upkeep, filing, and scheduling. After working with several other interns and associates, I am aware, more than ever, of how important it is to be a team player in such a fast-paced environment. Furthermore, I've acquired essential office skills and strengthened my professional written and verbal skills through administrative duties and correspondence with several large PR companies, editors, and high-end clientele. 

I am confident that the combination of my education, experience and dedication will make me an outstanding asset to your team. I hope you agree that my qualifications are a match for an opportunity with your company. Thank you for your consideration and I look forward to speaking with you further.
