Introduction Letter

Hello, my name is Alyssa Scholtz. I am a young female who is eager to learn about the opportunity presented. Let me tell you more about myself.

I have a very outgoing personality, a people person you might say. I have been in the retail business for 4 years and I have learned a lot about all aspects of a company. From the stockroom in a store, to managing the staff members, to administration duties, as well as cost control and why profits and saving is so important in a business. I dealt a lot with training staff members on different aspects in the store. In short, I tend to be the “go to” for all questions and uncertainty.

I am a very hard working and talented. I have a passion for being challenged in new environments. I love to learn everything about everything and I am a very involved person who wouldn’t mind going that extra mile for a company.

I work very well in teams and I have great problem solving skills. I am eager to learn and share the knowledge that I have.

In the future I would love to get a degree in business management as well as marketing.
