Dear Ms. Moore:
Supporting sales teams at industry trade shows and creating aesthetically pleasing merchandise displays is what I do best. My natural flair for visual merchandising was honed during college where I earned a degree in merchandising and marketing. Throughout my career, I have held support positions in jewelry, apparel, and novelty items manufacturing environments.
Most recently, I managed customized merchandise orders and created merchandising displays for JLR Design and Manufacturing, a distributor of promotional items. As the firm's key liaison at pharmaceutical industry tradeshows, I created promotion displays for such well known companies as Pfizer, Novartis, Merck, and Aventis.
As a Production and Sales Executive Assistant for Collegbound, an apparel manufacturer, I coordinated orders for 300 accounts and created the company's first showroom.
Earlier in my career, I serviced over 400 accounts for a $50M gold manufacturer and troubleshot shipping, billing, and quality control issues.
At this juncture, I am actively searching for a position where I can leverage my trade show, merchandising, and administrative skills to support a new company. My resume is attached for your review and I look forward to a personal interview.
