Dear Mr. Smith,
My work with a highly diverse clientele has been very rewarding, and the experience has reinforced my need to work in an independent capacity that draws together decision-making, problem-solving, and superior people skills.
Staff and the general public respond positively to my managerial, leadership and communication style. I would like to continue working in a business or people-related position with public visibility, and have enclosed a resume for your review. Some of the other qualities I offer are
- Ability to listen closely and react to what people actually say or mean
- Diplomacy, discretion, and consistent style
- Positive attitude
- Flexible nature attuned to changing markets and needs
- Attention to details and concerns
- Efficient multitasking and performance under pressure
- Professional manner, with strict adherence to confidentiality
- Awareness of the importance of professional networking—willingness to attend Chamber of Commerce and other relevant meetings
I’ve enjoyed assisting in the sales department of a major hotel the last two years and have been called on to fill in when the Conference Coordinator needed additional help with the multitude of details for an unusually large conference. I have not only done some of the “grunt” work but also conferred with various clients, set up the technical logistics, handled last-minute changes, and coordinated with the banquet department. Testimonials from the Conference Coordinator and General Manager will back up my skills and abilities and will verify their opinion that I would be a good fit for a full-time banquet and conference coordinator.
I am highly responsible and trustworthy, and clients and employees alike feel comfortable that I’ll do what I say and that promises won’t “fall between the cracks.” My genuine concern for quality customer service and improved worker motivation is readily apparent, as is interest in professional development and ongoing learning.
It is difficult to determine from resumes career potential and in which areas a person can make a difference to a company. I am looking forward to meeting with you to discuss your needs, to exchange information, and to address any questions.
