Henry Jensen
Restaurant Manager
Montgomery’s Bistro
42 Essex Street
Manhattan, NY 55555

Dear Mr. Jensen,

I was excited to discover Montgomery’s Bistro is looking for a new server, and hope to be invited for an interview.  My good friend Lauren Caswell is currently a server at your restaurant, and informed me of the opening.  

I have an extensive background as a server, bartender, and hostess.  My most recent experience was as a night and weekend server at Callaway’s.  In the three years I worked there, I was responsible for serving 3-6 tables at a time, taking drink orders and making mixed drinks, and handling payments.  Prior to my position at Callaway’s, I was a server at Elena’s BBQ and Brazilian Grill, and a hostess at Frederico’s.  Through all of this experience, I have developed the essential customer service, multi-tasking, problem-solving, memorization, and efficiency skills required to please customers and optimize their dining experience.  I genuinely enjoy serving customers and I appreciate the value of fine dining, and therefore am always cheerful, positive, and sincere in my work.

I am also a regular diner at Montgomery’s, am already familiar with the menu, and I love the restaurant’s cuisine.  I am confident that I would be an asset to your restaurant and an excellent server.

Thank you for considering me for this position. My resume is enclosed, and I hope to meet with you soon.

Sincerely,
Christina Wellington

Dear Mr. Smith,

I am a 2010 Music Education graduate from Utah State University interested in applying for the band teaching position you have posted on teachers-teachers.com.

I am currently the music teacher at Farmington Elementary.  My primary responsibilities include teaching fourth and fifth grade students woodwind, brass, and percussion instruments, teaching general music classes for grades K-5, preparing the students to perform in various concerts throughout the school year, and collaborating with other teachers.  This position, along with my student teaching and thorough education at USU, have prepared me with the patience, creativity, passion, and enthusiasm needed to make music fun, enjoyable, and beneficial to young students.   Having taught beginning music students at the elementary level, I am excited at the possibility of moving on to teaching middle school-age children and helping them continue to develop their musical skills and passion.

Thank you for considering me for this position.  Please do not hesitate to contact me for further information.  I hope to meet with you soon for an interview.

Best regards,

To Whom It May Concern:

For several months now I have had interest in obtaining an internship in marketing with Kilian Shoes. As a user and personal advocate, I admire the brand for the high quality shoes, apparel, and accessories it produces.

As a student of marketing at the University of Connecticut, I have the opportunity to learn from PhD marketing specialists and professors who have excellent in-field marketing experience. I have learned the value of good brand management, proper consumer insight, and innovative strategy.  I have developed excellent communication skills and enjoy working with idea creation.  I am highly motivated and work well in a team environment to accomplish goals and objectives.  I have risen to the occasion when the opportunity has presented itself to lead my team on projects to help drive the team toward meeting its goals. I have learned effective ways to reach out to a target audience and promote a product that is beneficial to them. I enjoy the idea of building on a brand to create a higher level of interest among its target audience.  Because of my excellent teamwork skills, passion for marketing and running, and understanding of the Killian Shoes brand, I would be an immediate asset to your team.

I am excited at the prospect of working with Kilian Shoes this summer. Thank you for your consideration.

Respectfully,
Jonathan Butler

Mr. Frank Doyle
Owner, Frankie’s Landscape Maintenance
35 Main Street
Mendon, CO 55555

Dear Mr. Doyle,

I am an experienced landscape maintenance professional interested in applying for the team manager position you posted on yardworkpros.com.

I have been working in landscape maintenance for the past five years.  During this time I learned how to mow, trim, blade-edge, trim bushes, and fix machinery properly and efficiently.  In addition to these basic skills, I am proficient in sprinkler repair as well as off-season jobs such as Christmas light installation and snow removal.  I am accustomed to working long hours, working well with a crew, and paying attention to detail in my work.  Although I work quickly, I do not sacrifice quality for speed.  I understand and value the importance of working with customers to make sure they are pleased with the results of my work.

I am confident that my experience has adequately prepared me to manage a team in accomplishing professional landscape maintenance work.  Thank you for considering me for this position.  Please contact me with any questions.  I hope to meet with you for a personal interview.

Sincerely,
Brad Hanson
