Dear Mr. Cameron:
Upon hearing that Hyatt is looking for an Assistant Cook on an immediate basis, I decided to offer my services as I truly believe in my ability to work well in a culinary environment.
I started out my career in cooking when I got a part time job at the school cafeteria ten years ago. I must say I have come a long way since then and have learnt a lot in terms of food preparation, oven regulations, broilers, grills and roasters. Not only equipment management, but learning about preparing salads, desserts and appetizers has been quite a journey and a pleasant one at that. My formal training in cooking has instilled in me the knowledge of proper food storage procedures and how to rotate stored food appropriately.
Assisting a head chef with performing his duties effectively will in turn help me further my knowledge of this work and I will be able to contribute my knowledge and expertise to your kitchen as well. I am enclosing my resume for your consideration and can be contacted at (888) 888-8888 if you need to ask me any further questions.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
