Dear Ms. Wanda Thompson,
I am applying for the position of Night Porter with Guest Services, Inc.
I have an associate degree in hospitality and two years of experience working in a large hotel as a front desk clerk. During this time, I gained considerable knowledge of the duties and responsibilities required to keep a hotel running smoothly. My experience includes checking in guests, assigning rooms and making sure that any special requests were handled in an efficient and timely fashion.
My special abilities include possessing excellent management and leadership skills and my outgoing personality and desire to meet and talk with new people make it easy to work in this type of environment. I know how to provide outstanding customer service and enjoy taking that extra step to ensure the guests have a pleasant stay. It is my desire to provide guests with the very best service possible so they will want to return to your hotel on their next visit.
My personal skills include being very observant with the ability to make rounds to ensure the hotel area is secured and to check for unusual activity. They also include having excellent time management, organizational and multi-tasking skills that make it possible to take care of the guests and duties associated with this position efficiently.
I can also keep an accurate log of any suspicious activity on the property and to keep track of all check-ins that take place after normal business hours. I am a great match for this position and hope to meet with you soon to discuss the details in person.
