Dear Ms. Clive:

I recently met with Jenna Dodge who works as a waitress at Cheeky Joe’s and she strongly recommended that I apply for the open position of a Coffee Shop Assistant. Comprehending the fact that I possess the necessary customer orientation skills and the ability to perform several tasks at the same time, she concluded that I am the ideal candidate to fill this position.

Since this work involves meeting with different kinds of people each day and striving to keep them all satisfied, I would like to utilize my keen sense of customer services and the ability to work in a fast paced environment. Understanding the fact that coffee shops have long opening hours, I possess the ability to work round the clock in an efficient manner. Since I have worked in hospitality roles earlier, I am comfortable with food and coffee preparation and serving techniques that are particular to most coffee shops. My adeptness at applying flexible approaches to work methods and the ability to work in harmony with other team members has been commended many a time!

I am positive that I can bring a touch of great professionalism to Cheeky Joe’s. I would like to meet with you to discuss this further for which I will call you after the weekend. In the interim, if you need any additional information from my side, please call me at (122) 191-1111.

Thank you for your time and consideration.


Sincere regards,
