Mr. Thomas Smith
Joie de Vivre Hospitality

Dallas, TX 75247

Dear Mr. Smith,

I’m submitting this letter to officially apply for the runner position that recently opened up at Joie de Vivre Hospitality. I have held a position very similar to this one for the past two years and my experience coincides with the job description you have posted in your advertisement.

Some of the value I can bring to Joie de Vivre Hospitality can be summarized with a brief description of my background history.

I have the following experience:

•Assisting with general office duties such as filing, answering phones and bookkeeping
•Sorting and distributing mail
•Running mail and documents from one department to another
•Picking up and running supplies
•Maintaining a clear and safe work environment

I’m friendly, enthusiastic and enjoy adding a bit of personal service to my job when dealing with clients and co-workers. These are all qualities that I believe make me an excellent choice for the runner position being offered by your company.

I’m currently attending classes at East-West University where I’m working towards a master’s degree in business management. In the meantime, I would greatly appreciate the opportunity to gain more personal experience working in an office setting. I’m available anytime. Please contact me at (333)-553-2201 to make arrangements for an interview.


Your Signature

Ellen Hacker
