About me

 

To whom it may concern I am writing to express a very strong interest in the junior garment technologist position advertised at www.totaljobs.com. My strong approach towards customer service and well-developed people and computer skills make me a perfect candidate for this job. I am trustworthy and reliable and take great pleasure in my work. Besides, I am a lively team player who works effectively with co-workers. Currently, I am working for Henry Bertrand,a Silk Wholesaler, and have accumulated various skills in performing fabric specs. I am assisting with general colour, fabric identity checks including marking of any faults accurately. Whilst working for Henry B. I learnt to distinguish a wide variety of interior as well as fashion fabrics and developed a keen eye for detail and enjoyed working closely with the couriers and sales. My University background is in Costume Making(Interpretation). I used to help with theatre and general fittings and hope my learnt skills would be beneficial to your company. I am originally from Germany and speak, write and read English fluently and with excellence. !I am convinced that my broad knowledge equipped me with a strong set of valuable competencies that meet your needs. I am eager to combine my energy to make a meaningful contribution to the long term goals. Please contact me at your earliest convenience to set up a time to meet.
