Dear Sirs,

This letter is to express my interest in the Front Desk job.  Based on my skills in working with people, I am confident that I would be a great addition to your team.

I have stayed at many hotels over the past 30 years and have experienced some very nice customer service. I would like to replicate this.

My resume highlights my ability, knowledge, and expertise in Customer Service and working with people. During my time at United Pacific Forest Products I was able to have several successes in bringing about Health and Safety Programs, and at the same time was able to save money, save time, increase sales and increase productivity. For example, I trained more than 200 new employees in Health and Safety, wrote over 700 safety documents, and had the total commitment from the owners, managers and the people working at our 4 plants. In addition, I wrote ISO9000, ISO14000 and FSC documentation. 

During this time, I closely collaborated with OSHA inspectors who gave me exceptionally high marks for my documentation, programs and working with people. Prior to that, I excelled in Production Management and Customer Service at Riddle Press for 15 years.

I know how important it is to properly greet people, answers their questions, and make sure they are getting service.         

I’m retired now, but wish to get back to the Front Desk, one day a week.

Don't Be Fooled

  • When selling, do not put your home address in your ad.
  • To avoid scams, buy and sell with people you can meet locally, in person.
  • When meeting with someone you don't know, meet in a public place. If that's not possible, have a buddy with you. Also, carry a cell phone; if you feel unsafe, you can call a trusted friend, and stay on the line.
  • Never give out financial or private information like account numbers, PayPal login, or social security number.
  • If an offer sounds too good to be true, it is. Walk away!
