My job role of an antique dealer entails the purchasing and selling
of a wide variety of second hand goods that have become valuable overtime.
Day to day activities include buying antiques, this includes furniture, pottery
or memorabilia, and selling them on to make a profit. I use the following means
to sell antiques: auction, private sale, and Internet websites or market stores.

university. I believe antiques show a clear picture of past civilisations, cultures
and communities. This is very enriching and enlightening to own part of the
I have 20 years experience within the business, which has enabled me to build
a loyal customer base. I keep them updated on a daily bases in regards to my
latest finds and the price through twitter, face book, Internet website and
e-mail. I also meet up with them on regular bases to sell new products through
private sessions, but first I speak on the phone to make sure that the product
found is of interest to them and also I introduce them to items that they might
want to purchase. A lot persuasion and negotiation skills are necessary in this
line of work.
From what I have stated above I am sure I will be an asset if I selected for
the role Antique dealer at your reputable firm. Get
