Dear Mr. Andrew:
I came across your advertisement for the position of a Receptionist at Hyatt and would like to apply for the same. Due to Hyatt’s standing as a prominent, innovative and rising company of the USA, I am inspired to pursue my customer service and front desk interests at your organization. My diverse and strong academic and clerical background would make me a precious asset to Hyatt.
During my internship as a receptionist at East West Company, I gained practical experience in greeting people coming into office, directing them to the exact employee and giving information in person and by phone. In addition, I performed clerical duties and maintained front desk security and access lists. My enclosed resume gives more details about my skills which are relating to your requirements.
I will contact you in the first week of July to schedule a time in which I might further discuss my qualifications for the receptionist position. In the interim, I can be reached at (119) 000-9999 or via email at (Email).
Thank you for your time and consideration.
