Dear Hiring Manager:

Coco Chanel said that fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the
way we live, what is happening, and it is clear that Jennifer Bett Communications has
capitalized on this vision with such an impressive and diverse clientele base.

I am tenacious, hard-working, and always ready to take on a challenge. I have worked
retail since I was able to, and have over a decade of fashion retail experience. Throughout
my retail career, I have been in charge of sales, stocking, staging store floor sets, and
updating and posting social media and email material. At Skyline Productions, I created
their entire online presence and social media persona throughout my time with the
company from 2013-2014. While at my most recent position at Rhodadendron, I have been
in charge of the weekly email blasts we put out, as well as maintaining both the Facebook
and Instagram accounts.

In just seven months at Rhodadendron, I have become the store manager and had the
pleasure of becoming active in the buying process. I am in charge of taking merchandise
orders for the store from our market dealers; keeping track of the orders and payments;
and scheduling COD shipments and drop-offs with UPS and FedEx.

Not only do I have a strong work ethic, but I also have the stamina and eagerness to
continue learning the business of both public relations and fashion, as the industries
continue to evolve.

I am a valuable addition to any company, and would be more than happy to meet with you
to discuss how I can become a part of the formidable Public Relations team that Jennifer
Bett Communications already has in place.


Sincerely,

Sara West
