Dear Ms. Elizabeth Currier,

I am writing to express my interest in the position of Food Buyer at Performance Food Group and my credentials match the requirements listed in your posting.

I have a bachelor’s degree in marketing and I worked three years as an assistant food buyer, where I gained extensive knowledge dealing with suppliers and placing orders. I have the skills and experience needed to select the best food products for your business. I also have the ability to determine the right quantity for each item and to adjust the order based on the seasonal demands in addition to how well a specific item is selling.

I have excellent communication and people skills with the ability to help build and maintain good relationships with suppliers. I also have the ability to research the different suppliers to gather the information needed to determine which ones offer the best service.

I have excellent negotiating skills with the ability to receive the best quality for the lowest possible prices. I can coordinate with the vendors to make sure deliveries arrive on time and I have the ability to estimate the needs of the restaurant based on past sells and predictions. I possess very strong analytical and decision-making skills along with the ability to multi-task and manage my time wisely. I am confident that I can be a valuable addition to your restaurant.

You can reach me for an interview by calling (333)-614-3904 and I am looking forward to meeting with you soon to discuss this position in more detail.

Sincerely,

Signature
