I am a 25 year old young man that has the will, the determination and a sure found passion in baking that has fueled my professional career up until now. My girlfriend of 10 years received an opportunity in her career in the Greensboro area and I am moving down with her so that I can make her my fiancé, and we can continue to build our relationship with aspirations to start a family in the North Carolina community. I have family in the Charlotte area, and I am fully aware and excited to become apart of the wholesome nature your community offers. I would love an opportunity to be employed in your area and in your company so that I can further the career that I have worked so hard to maintain. I promise that you will get a 110% effort in learning your system in a timely manner and thriving in it to ensure that the company grows as I grow. I need this opportunity to support my relocation and that is all of the motivation I need to do what is necessary to ensure success as an employee at the Flowers Baking Company. I have been trained under Charlie Podolak, one of my highest esteemed and most accomplished managers. If you contact him, he will be more than happy to vouch for the knowledge and effort I exhibit on a daily basis.
