Dear Hiring Managers,
I am writing to apply for the Visual Stylist job within Cargie Design, Inc. as advertised on your company careers website. As a highly-skilled and performance-driven individual, I believe that I possess everything required to execute the role and all associated duties successfully. Furthermore, I am certain that it would be a great opportunity for me to grow both personally and professionally.
Offering the Visual Merchandising Design Certificate and a bachelor's degree in Fashion Design with Business Administration, I am educated in various aspects of a business and industry. At the university, I was not only among the top 10% of students with the best academic results (3.98 GPA) but I also served as a Class Representative for one year. This tremendous experience has helped me to acquire great communication skills and allowed me to develop the important ability to function in fast-paced team environments.
Next, I worked as a Visual Stylist at Neiman Marcus Design, Inc. for more than two years. There, I was given the responsibility for working on the development of new design concepts, creating original design themes, and completing professional merchandise presentations. Additionally, I developed merchandise budgets, trained and supervised new Merchandisers, and pro-actively participated in the implementation of promotional campaigns, ensuring that the company's needs and requirements were always fully met. For exceeding all assigned goals and targets, I won the Employee of the Month Award twice and I was recognized by the organization managers and executives as a top achieving employee.
I am possessing extensive time management skills and the ability to perform well under pressure. Finally, I am a native German speaker with a proficiency in English and French and the experience with multiple important industry software programs, including Netsuite, AmberPOS, and STORIS. Thank you for your time and consideration.
