Dear Ms. Maria Richards,
My career goal is to become a well-known chef and that is why I have an interest in becoming an Apprentice Chef with Red Ring Restaurant.
I have always admired your head chef and started modeling my career after him. It would be an honor to have the privilege to work as his apprentice. I have completed a culinary arts program in which I learned the basic cooking skills.
I have the ability to listen and understand directions perfectly. I know that I can complete any order given me exactly as directed. I function well in fast pace situations and I am sure that I can be an asset during busy times. My specialty dish is pasta but I welcome the chance to learn a variety of other dishes, which I know I can learn from this position.
I am excited to see how the kitchen is run in one of the finest restaurants in the city. There is always a great amount of excitement in the kitchen and I very much want to be a part of it but at the same time, I know how to stay out of the way and learn from afar when needed.
Being an Apprentice Chef in your restaurant and working side-by-side one of the finest chefs in the world is a dream come true. It is what I need to jump-start my career and I truly hope that you choose me for this position.
I am available anytime and you can reach me by calling (555)-555-5555.
