It's a long time since I applied for a job.

It's just a christmas job in a shop, but I really need it.

Right, what do I put need to put in it? Should I be trying to sell myself or just a please find enclosed kind of thing?

I normally do -
why I want the job, say something about the company
a couple of lines about relevant experience - so it they have said anything is essential that you have hightlight it
then I look forward to hearing from you

Thanks for that, so:

"Excited at the opportunity to work for such well respected company, who's products I use and would recommend.

Previous relevant experience in retail.

How skills I use in current job are transferable to the one I'm applying for.
Thanks for taking the time to read this, look forward to hearing from etc etc"

That sort of thing?

(obviously with better grammar grin)
