Dear Mr. Cummings:
My interest in the position of Masonry Supply Manager (New York Post,
November 30) has prompted me to forward my resume for your review and
During the past ten years, my experience has been concentrated in the
masonry and plastering products supply industry with a building
materials firm. During my six years as General Manager, I took an old
line business, which had undergone several years of poor management, and
reversed the trend. I upgraded the firm's image, and customer and vendor
relations, which subsequently increased the dollar volume and bottom
line profits by 300%.
I am presently looking for a position where my experience will make a
positive contribution to the start-up or continuing profitable operation
of a business in which I am so well experienced.
I will contact you in a few days to arrange a meeting for further
discussion. In the interim, should you require additional information, I
may be reached at (203) 555-5555 between 9 A.M. and 5 P.M.
