Dear Mrs. Langston,
I would like to apply for the position of Waitress at Sheraton Downtown today. As an experienced Waitress for the past 11 years, as well as a regular customer of your fine establishment; I am very excited to apply for your open position.
As you will find from my resume, I have worked the past 11 years as a professional Waitress. I have significant experience on the floor, as well as bar staff; and have worked in both upscale restaurants as well as a nightclub. This is what makes me perfect for this position, as I can offer your entire bar and restaurant guests the service, speed, and versatility that they expect from your staff. I have excellent people skills and have a great track record in customer service.
I am available at your convenience, and ask that you contact me at (555)-555-5555 to arrange for a potential meeting. I would be happy to stop by sometime next week and discuss my experience with you further, if this suits me. Thanks for your time.
