Dear Mr. Bennett,

I recently saw your advertisement in one of the local newspapers regarding your open Kitchen Assistant position. I feel I am well qualified for this position, and would love the opportunity to interview to tell you why.

I have included a resume that will show you an overview of my best attributes and qualifications. First, I have been in the hospitality industry for the past ten years, beginning as a Bus Person when I was in high school, then moving on to Wait staff, and then to Prep Cook; and now, to my present role as Kitchen Assistant for one of the area’s most well known restaurants. Though I have quickly gained what it takes to bring success in the kitchen for this establishment, I seek a more dynamic, challenging, and fast paced environment. This can only be found in a more prestigious and more popular upscale establishment, such as yours. I have been a guest at Mimis Cafe for years, and have always admired the level of quality food, service, and environment that is available. I would like to bring my experience to your restaurant success.

To learn more about me and my experience over the past ten years, I ask that you contact me at (555)-262-4089 at your earliest convenience. Thanks so much for your time and convenience, and I look forward to discussing this opportunity further with you.


Your Signature

Ruth Cook
