Dear Mrs. Carson,
I recently saw that your restaurant is seeking a new Pastry Cook. My resume has been submitted to this document for your convenience and perusal. I know that I have the skills and background that you are looking for in order to fill the opening.
My education includes completing a four year course at Pastry Chef School. I also have worked as a Pastry Chef for over twelve years which includes work that I have done in a five star restaurant as well as in my own company. I am seeking this position as my own company has suffered due to the economic times that we are all suffering through right now. It is my goal to obtain a position that offers me the security and longevity that I had before venturing out on my own.
I know that my culinary skills would be appreciated by a restaurant as prestigious as yours and that your customers would enjoy my creations. I can supply samples of my work upon request or can prepare them in your kitchen if you would care to observe my skills in person. Feel free to call me at any time at (555)-555-5555. I am available at your convenience and am prepared to show my skills when you are ready for me.
