Dear management,

I am inquiring about the open position as a server in your restaurant. This establishment is just the thing I am looking for to continue my employment in the fine dining environment. There is something I cherish so much just by seeing the guest's face light up with enjoyment and I am positive I can achieve that if given the opportunity.
Having had almost five years experience in fine dining workplaces over the years, I am certain I can fill this role quite beautifully. I find an enormous amount of pleasure making other people happy. Whether it is by making them laugh, making their stay that much more relaxing or by impressing them with extensive wine knowledge.

I strongly believe that you can have the most amazing food in the world being served at your restaurant but if you do not have the absolute best customer service, you run the risk of losing the customer's business. My goal is to cooperate with my team in order to fulfill the guest's every need so they do, in fact, return. People go to different restaurants for a multitude of reasons but the utmost variable in every equation that brings them back consistently is excellent customer service.

If you would like me to come to the restaurant to further discuss how I can be an asset to your team, I would have no problem doing so. I can be best reached by email but can take phone calls as well.

I greatly appreciate your time for review and consideration for this position.

Warmest regards,
Kyle Hare

    Summary
    I offer my free assistance to help create films in a full production company with paid producers, directors, actors, etc. I do whatever the producers need done and coordinate with a team of other assistants that come together to achieve our goals in a professional manner. It was basically interning without the college credit, just the experience. This is a large passion of mine and I have had the time of my life being on set. I really want to also start this pursuit a little bit in New York City.
