ok people, ive been looking for a job for ages and i need someone to help me to fil in an application in a pro way. recently, i think it was 8 staff that got the sack, and one of them i kind of knew, so she told everyone about the incident. now this is where i want you people to help.

this is what it states in the application

'As a company we believe life is too short to spend it doing something you don't enjoy, and we believe it takes a special kind of person to enjoy retail. you have got to love people, be energised by the pace and be crazy about the merchandise and most of all crave the next challange.

if you feel the above statement motivates you and you would like to become part of the team, please tell us in no more than 50 words why you would make a (the company's name) college?'

i would be greatful if someone can answer the obove for me.
thankyou

No-one on here is going to answer that for you, we could give you some tips though.

-say what you know of retail and why you think you'd enjoy it
-attribute likeing energetic environments to other atmospheres you've been in, talk from experience
-talk about your view on customers, depending on whether you've worked in retail before will determine the angle you take
-talk about what you know of the company and say why you'd think you'd fit in, ie the company and you share the same qualities of valuing work and enjoying what you do etc etc.

If this job involves working in a target-based sales environment, and 8 people have just been sacked from identical positions, I think you should ask yourself whether you want to be working in an environment where, if you can't meet targets they set, you'll be sacked.
