Dear Ms. Mary Raynor,
I am applying for the position of Food Service Assistant with Volunteers of America and I am a great match for this job.
I have two years of experience working as a food server where I offered guests menus, took orders and delivered food to the tables. I have a very outgoing personality well suited for this type of work with the ability to help create a friendly and pleasant environment that encourages repeat business. I have a great memory with the ability to learn the names of the regulars in a few short visits.
I have the ability to take orders accurately and to learn the menu in a fast and efficient manner. I can provide guests with meal suggestions and give them information about the different foods served. I can handle complaints and unhappy customers discreetly and I understand how important it is to provide excellent customer service.
I always follow company policies concerning dress codes, personal hygiene and proper food handling procedures. I am team oriented and I get along well with my co-workers but I am also self-motivated and able to work efficiently without direct supervision.
I have excellent multi-tasking abilities needed to work in this fast paced and sometimes stressful environment. I meet the physical requirements of this position with the ability to lift up to 50 pounds and to stand for long periods. I am a great match for this job and I hope to meet with you soon.
You can reach me for an interview by calling (555)-555-5555.
