Dear Hiring Manager:
Thank you so much for your willingness to take time out of your busy schedule to accept my application. It is greatly appreciated. I really enjoyed speaking briefly with you about a position with your business.

Again, I appreciate your time and consideration for this exciting opportunity. Please let me know if I can provide you with any further information about my background or anything else you may need. I look forward to hearing from you soon. If you would like to schedule an interview, please contact me at the phone number provided below.
Enrique knows first hand that serving food is more than taking an order and delivering the food. He makes his attitude the focus of his cover letter and mentions the results (tips) he gets. Restaurant owners know that people tip when they’re happy. Happy customers, most often, mean more business for the restaurant.

The food server position at Rosario came to my attention because someone I know came back from Orcas Island and couldn’t stop talking about the food at your restaurant. After that, I visited your web site and decided that working in your restaurant would be my ideal summer job. What more can I ask than to serve great food in a beautiful, classy setting? I believe that my professional attitude, work ethic, and experience are perfect for the food server position at Rosario.
The attitude and professionalism of the server has a direct effect on the customer’s experience. I love to serve food and have a talent for it. I always serve food as if I am giving the customer something wonderful and they appreciate it every time, even at the local soup kitchen where I volunteer. At the Burger Ranch I am always prompt and pay absolute attention to each customer. I announce specials with expertise and enthusiasm. I get remarkable tips from my customers. In a way, I have always been a food server in a fine dining facility like the restaurant at Rosario because I treat each customer as if they are at the best restaurant in town.
I will call your office on May 24 to make sure you have received my application in good order. I look forward to speaking with you!
