I'm a recent college grad with a degree in applied statistics.
Before accepting the job offer can I mention this:
In order to be a realistic long term fit, I want to bring to attention that I am interested in assuming the role of an inventory analyst at ABC. My area of study and problem solving skills are best utilized under the job description of an analyst.
I am willing to start off as an inventory associate and learn the details of the business. I estimate that 6-12 months will be ample time for me to understand the inventorial procedures of ABC and transition that knowledge into the position of an inventory analyst.
As an inventory analyst I will be seeking a base salary of 55,000.
The wording can definitely improve, it's just a rough.
