Dear Ms. Houser:
I am applying to your ad for a Janitor in the Sunday, June 21, 2008 edition of the Boston Herald. I submit my interest as I have many years in janitorial services and offer the skill set, superior work ethic, and enthusiasm this position requires.
The Residence Suites is a stellar hotel chain, in which I have had the joy of spending time in as a consumer; as well as hearing wonderful things about the business as an employer. It is a leader in the hospitality industry, and I look forward to adding my talents, experience, and commitment to high operational standards to the success of this chain. I have over 20 years in the janitorial industry-offering my cleaning and operational services in both a managerial and team associate to the optimum result of the establishments.
I believe it would be greatly beneficial to us both-for a meeting regarding this position, in which we can discuss my career experience, personal recommendations, and skill set in more detail. Please let me know a time that might suit you best. Thank you so much for your time and consideration.
Sincerely, Jimmy Great
