|RE: ||Customer Service Representative position|
Dear Mr. Vega,
I was excited to see your advertisement for a Customer Service Representative on monster.com.
Berry Berry Good Juice Company has an impeccable reputation as a quality all-natural juice maker and a supporter of the community it serves. I attended the health fair your company sponsored at the Oaks Mall, and it was impressive.
I am very interested in the Customer Service Representative position. My background includes two years as a part-time airline phone Reservationist, and two summers working at Hovendale's department store at the return desk. I pride myself on my ability to empathize with the customers and my sense of urgency when dealing with their concerns.
I would enjoy meeting with you to share what I could do for your customers and I will call you in a week about the possibility of an interview.
Thank you for your time.
