Cover letter Mourtou Konstantina Hairstylist-Hairdresser-Salon Manager.docx
Dear Sir or Madam,
I am writing to apply for the position of hairdresser-hairstylist because I believe I have all the necessary skills required. I am reliable, honest, positive, professional and friendly. I have a strong sense of responsibility and I am able to work on my own as well as a part of a team. I possess good communication and customer service skills and I am well-groomed and well dressed. I have a strong willingness to learn everything around hairdressing and barbering and I am passionate about a career in that domain. I am also interested in Salon management as I have already studied Business Administration and had my Master’s in Supply Chain Management since 2005.
I am having Greek nationality, being born in Athens, Greece in January 17th 1979 and I hold a Greek passport. I am married and I have a 9 years old son and a 6 years old daughter.
As far as foreign languages are concerned, I sat for IELTS (International English Language Testing System), General Training in February 2013 and I had an Overall Band Score 6,5/9. I had English Cambridge Proficiency with grade B in June 2002, English Michigan Proficiency in March 2002 and French Sorbonne 2 Certificate in April 1995.
I finished St Joseph Greek-French Private school (intermediate-high school) in Athens, in June 1996 and then I studied Business Administration in Technological Educational Institute of Athens and had my Bachelor’s Degree in April 2003. Moreover, I had my MSc in Supply Chain Management from the TIC, Technology Innovation Centre, Birmingham City University BCU, former University of Central England UCE, Birmingham, UK, in March 2005.
During my studies I worked as computer operator in O.A.E.D. Greek Manpower Employment Organization, catering assistant in café-restaurant in Athens and administration assistant in
Logistics Department of Halcor S.A. Metal-works of Viohalco Industry Group. After finishing my Master’s in UK, I returned to Greece and I found a job as Municipal Police Officer in Pireaus and then as Loan clerk in Agricultural Bank of Greece which was bought by the Piraeus Bank S.A, a private bank. In March 2014 I resigned from Piraeus Bank as I was absolutely focused on a hairdressing career. The fact that I resigned from such a position shows my determination to succeed in hairdressing. Nevertheless, a Salon manager position which is a combination of both hairdressing and management would be something that would give me pleasure and the opportunity to create numerous hairstyles and generally satisfy the customer.
As I have a flair for hairstyling and hairdressing I am a self-employed hairstylist-hairdresser since April 2014. I am currently a student in Vang Hairdressers Educational center in Greece which wins the awards of best school of hairdressing many years now. I will have my hairdresser degree of advanced level in end of June 2018 and I will be in Australia for second time in July or August in order to attend interviews and show my skills in hairdressing and management . Should you need a proof from my hairdressing school that I am a student there, I can provide you with that whenever requested. I am actually working at the moment at the Educational Center’s salon and I am confident in all aspects of hairdressing even barbering. I get such satisfaction of being a hairstylist-hairdresser in my everyday life that I regret not starting being a hairstylist earlier in my life. I am also very keen on working with children and the best part is when I see their reaction when they see what I have created on them. The girls are so excited with the ribbons that I use in their braids. I am proud of my work and my creations and I know well that there is always room for improvement. I attach some photos of my work together with my certificate in Tribal hair and my degrees in Business Administration and Supply Chain Management. I am really sorry about the background of the interior of my house in many of the photos of my work but I am not a professional photographer so I am asking for your sympathy. For photos of my work please visit the link below:
I have a passion for braids, upstyles and tribal - hair tattoos and I would like not only to work in a salon environment and even manage it but also to be given the opportunity to be involved with hair styling for fashion parades, TV shows, photographic collections, fashion editorials, theatrical plays, weddings, even opera.
For your information I would like to let you know that my husband, who is a B1 CASA Licensed Aircraft Maintenance Engineer and I are waiting to accept a visa sponsorship by an Australian employer in order to be able to work and live permanently in Australia and offer a better future to our children. We have very close Greek friends who live and work in Melbourne, Sydney, Gold Coast and Brisbane and we actually visited them in September 2017 and since then we cannot take our mind away from Australia! It would be ideal for my husband and I to find jobs in Australian cities where there are also Greek schools for our children to have a smoother transition and not to be away from their native language and Greek tradition. Of course this does not mean that we are not interested in any offer that may arise from regional cities where there are no Greek schools. Both of our children speak and write English and are absolutely ready to attend English schools.
It would be like fulfilling my lifelong ambition if you were interested in sponsoring me and offering me a place as hairdresser-hairstylist-salon manager in your company. Thank you very much for the time reading this letter and I would be grateful if you could reply to me at your earliest convenience.
