Dear Human Resource Manager,

I saw your job posting for the store manager position at ABC Store. My qualifications allow me to bring to ABC Store the following strengths:

  • Accurate and documented inventory reports on time.

The employees who have worked for me can attest to my people skills. I genuinely enjoy my co-workers and make the work environment as interesting and enjoyable as possible. By looking out for the employees, the employees have always repaid the favor by taking good care of XYZ's customers.
