Dear Ms. Jones:

As an accomplished purchasing specialist with extensive healthcare industry experience, I was very interested to learn about your purchasing specialist opening. I offer eight years of experience working for ABC Company, a national home healthcare company and a billion-dollar leader in the industry. As the company’s corporate purchasing specialist, I managed:

 

  • Purchasing functions for 115 locations.
  • 75 major contracts in areas including medications, supplies, equipment, furniture, uniforms, distribution and vending machines.
  • A 15-member team of contractors, buyers, analysts and support staff.

Consistently recognized for outstanding performance, I saved ABC Company more than $5.3 million in 2007 alone. An expert in contract negotiations, vendor management and global sourcing, I repeatedly reduced expenditures, cost-of-sales (COS) and cost-of-goods (COG), as well as assisted with major system implementations of inventory, purchasing and tracking systems.

In 2011, ABC Company experienced a significant workforce reduction and my position was eliminated. Since then, I have remained active in the American Purchasing Society and completed courses in business ethics, contract law, the art of negotiation and supply chain management. I plan on sitting for the Certified Professional Purchasing Manager (CPPM) exam later this year.

I am confident that my ongoing studies combined with successful experience in the field will enable me to aggressively pursue cost-reduction opportunities and improve return on investment (ROI) for your company. If you agree that my skills and experience would benefit your operation, please call me at (555) 555-5555 or email to arrange an interview. Thank you for your time, and I look forward to speaking with you.

Sincerely,

Your Name
