Dear Ms. Lambton:
Lori Emery, a member of the Purchasing Management Association of Canada, suggested I contact you concerning your Procurement Department. She is of the opinion you require an additional Purchasing Assistant as Shoppers Drug Mart expands the operations of the East Coast Division.
Acme Manufacturing is a large manufacturer of steel wheels to the automotive market, currently employing 350 associates. As Purchasing Assistant
, I play a vital role in supporting the Engineering, Maintenance and Stores activities, critical production support areas, proactively assessing inventory and ordering sufficient stock to ensure uninterrupted manufacturing activities.
As a member of the IT Update Committee, I was instrumental in the expansive transition of the procurement software from NetSuite to JD Edwards, providing purchasing input during the multi-phase project.
I excel in providing dedicated and enthusiastic customer service to both internal and external stakeholders and am committed to expanding my purchasing strengths, enrolling in the Certified Professional Purchaser program which I anticipate to graduate with in spring 2012.
In short, you will not be disappointed in adding me to your Procurement Team
to play a pivotal role in supporting your expansion initiatives. Do you have a position for me?
Thank you for your time and consideration.
