Dear [Mr/Ms/Mx] [Contact Person’s Name],
I’m writing to you regarding the waitress role I saw on [Website Name]. With more than four years of experience in the food industry and a BA in food service management, I firmly believe I’m both qualified for and capable of filling the position.
While working at Café Emmeline and La Maison Blanche, I picked up many skills useful in the hospitality industry like customer service, food handling techniques, and excelling in fast-paced environments. I was immersed in the ins and outs of the industry by managing various responsibilities such as opening and closing the restaurant, clearing tables, dealing with unhappy customers, and maintaining a hygienic dining environment.
My accomplishments include:
• Achieving the Waitress of the Month award 10 times
• Being personally named and praised by customers on 80+ Google Maps reviews
• Increasing sales at La Maison Blanche by 20% using effective upsale techniques
During university, I published a dissertation on the implementation of effective food handling techniques that included four interviews with catering professionals, an in-depth study on organic dish soap, and an extensive nutritional chart. This research, combined with my relevant modules, has furthered my knowledge and passion for the hospitality industry.
I’ve attached my CV, which further details my experiences and educational background. I look forward to hearing from you, and would love to visit your restaurant for an interview. Thank you for your time and consideration.
