I believe that it is never too early to start thinking of acquiring work skills that can only be developed through experience in the retail industry. That is why I have come to American Greetings of Hialeah to apply for a part-time management merchandiser or as another kind of sales associate. I feel that this store presents the proper environment for associates to excel and achieve success. I believe that I can increase my organizational and social skills by working in this store so that I can become more proficient and in turn, provide what I’ve learned to the good of the company.

My friends and parents say that I have the maturity to handle real-life work scenarios and the competency to work fast and proficiently. I would describe myself as an independent and creative person and since American Greetings is such an innovated social expressions company, I feel I would be most comfortable working here in where I can expand my imagination. I like it when I am given instructions; I am exceptionally responsible and rarely disappoint my elders. Like I stated before, I am independent and like to work on my own but am versatile and feel comfortable working with fellow associates. Teamwork is the key to the success of many organizations such as AG.

Most importantly, I believe I am qualified to work for AG because I am an extremely hard-working person as can be seen on my school accomplishments. I am a gifted/AP student and take my work very seriously. It is fundamental to work hard now as a student as this can open opportunities in the future. For instance, I am taking a vocational program in my school that will enable me to earn the Florida Academic Scholar scholarship that will let me go to any Florida state university with all expenses paid. My education is very significant to me and I do not treat it in a light manner.

Please consider me for a position in merchandising and sales; through it, I will endure a valuable experience and a great deal of knowledge...
