Dear Sir/Madam,

I am a final year student at Sheffield University studying Economics, searching for an exciting graduate job opportunity that will not only challenge and interest me, but that also complements my strengths. My ambitious nature and my interest in meeting new people have led me to pursue a career in buying.

The prestigious reputation that Next has developed over the past decade and the opportunity for training in such a company offers the perfect environment in which to gain my first professional experience in this field.

Whilst studying Economics I have developed an intimate and complete understanding of business structure and various different commercial markets. I believe this knowledge would be invaluable with regard to buying, as I fully understand businesses’ requirements.

Working with others is where I really excel. I am a very personable individual and I believe one of my key competences lies in my social skills and astute ability to recognise people’s strengths. This is possibly best demonstrated by my role as secretary for Sheffield University RFC 1st XV. Thanks to this experience, I was able to develop my communication and organisational skills, adapting my driven nature into a social environment.

I have also had the opportunity to gain sales and advertising experience through my job with Gee Tee Signs. This particular job has helped me to develop my customer relation skills, as well as become more familiar with the buying side of a flourishing business.

Why should I be considered?

I am an efficient, proactive, approachable person with natural persuasive and negotiation skills. Due to my experience of working in numerous different teams, both in a professional and leisure context, I am very adaptable to different types of personalities, a characteristic which I believe is vital in the marketing industry, whilst remaining…...

...problem with the procurement cost as a hard constraint is solved. For the combinatorial auction version, the problem of choosing the winning combination of bids from the set of submitted bids, is modeled as a set-covering problem with side constraints and in the volume discount auction, it is modeled as a variation of the multiple choice knapsack problem. The supplier selection mechanism using the MIP framework was deployed using IBM’s eCommerce platform - Websphere Commerce Suite 4.1 as part of MARS Inc’s procurement web site. In order to solve this MIP formulation, a bid evaluation engine was developed as an independent module in C++ using IBM’s OSL as the LP/IP solver. This engine, using heuristic approaches based on customized knapsack cover inequalities and column generation techniques, has proven effective in solving problems with 500 items and up to 5000 bids. Approximate solutions to within one percent of the optimal were obtained within two minutes response time with these heuristics. In order to ensure a steady rate of progress of the auction in practice, bids were collected every two minutes and an allocation decision was made. This decision was communicated back to the bidders to allow them to restructure their bids. The impact of the auction mechanism on procurement processes at MARS Inc has been significant with payback being achieved in less than a year, mostly from better allocation of contracts. The intangible benefits include a fair, faster and more......
