Dear Recruiting Professional, I am currently looking to get back into the Outdoor Apparel industry. I have recently been employed by a Children’s accessory company called Goldbug, Inc for the past 5 months and I had missed the challenges and excitement that came with working with outdoor gear and apparel. During my time at Goldbug, Inc. I was able to refine my merchandising and account management skills along with learning a lot about CPSIA standards. Through my time at Goldbug, Inc. though positive, I was able to refine my merchandising and account management skills, along with learning a lot about CPSIA standards. With the additional knowledge and experience I had acquired, I was still missing the excitement of working in the outdoor industry. I had previously been employed at Cabela’s, Inc. for a little over 2 years as a Color Specialist. I handled all aspects of color development, from lab dips and bulk fabric approvals to the evaluation of our preproduction samples. In my current position I have been fortunate enough to work side by side with many different cross functional groups as well as all of our vendors and mills. In my time at Cabela’s I have also been involved in a few different strategic projects. I have been involved on a materials consolidation project, the main goal of this project was to consolidate fabrics and trims across different product categories. The consolidation of these materials has helped our team to lower costs and shorten timelines. I was also the project co-lead on restructuring our entire lab dipping process. In addition to my time at Cabela’s, Inc, I also have a significant amount of Visual Merchandising and Customer Service experience. This past experience has enabled me to connect with customers on a more personal level and helps immensely when developing a garment in terms of function and presentation. I believe with my current experience and willingness to learn new skills that I would be a great addition to your team. I would love to have the opportunity to speak more with you regarding this job opportunity. Thank you! Sincerely, Andrea Montuori
