I am contacting you in regards to the ‘Retail Team Member’ position as advertised online on ‘One Shift Jobs’. I am a university student currently in my third year of study and as such require a part-time position. I am also very flexible in regards to my availabilities, as I have worked late and overnight shifts before. The extensive nature of university holidays also means that for a significant part of the year I have fully open availabilities and would be willing to undertake 5 shifts a week.
In my prior employment I have gained an in-depth knowledge of food and beverage preparation and have been responsible for cash handling, customer service and quality maintenance. I am a very social and amicable person which is essential in any customer oriented service position, such as you have advertised. I have also gained experience in barista work, with an emphasis on providing high-quality product to our customers. Analytical thinking is also one of my strong points, with an ability to maximise customer satisfaction through solution oriented problem solving. The skills that I have developed in my prior employment and educational background would be an asset in any customer service position.
I have attached my resume for your consideration and I look forward to hearing from you to further discuss this opportunity.
