To Whom It May Concern:
I recently saw your ad in the Kitsap Sun. I am interested in applying for your entry level sales
As a high school student, I am looking for employment where I can contribute my skills and
drive. My top skills lie in my work ethic, my enthusiasm, and my desire to always be improving.
I am reliable, responsible, and mature. In school, I achieve good grades and have focused on my
long-term goal of becoming a veterinarian. Science classes, particularly agriculture, have been
my favorite courses in high school. I also participated in many extra-curricular activities, such as
FFA and dance team. FFA taught me the importance of volunteering my time to help others and
broadened my knowledge about animals and what it takes to care for them. My experience with
the dance team taught the value of teamwork and dedication to a task.
My interest in Petco is rooted in several factors. First, your company demonstrates an ethical
sales philosophy that I admire. Also, I believe that selling pet supplies will be both challenging
and rewarding, and I have always been fascinated by animals, having four dogs of my own.
Additionally, I am sociable and know how to communicate to a variety of people in a friendly
and helpful manner.
My resume shows that I have experience with animals, a drive to work hard, and determination
to meet my goals. Meeting me in person will convince you that I can apply those talents to Petco.
I am available for an interview at your convenience and can be reached at 360-XXX-XXXX.
Thank you for your time.
