Hiring Manager

Chicago, IL 60617


Dear Mr. Watson:

Hearing about McDonald’s management trainee program from one of your crew members on my last regular dining visit, I’m writing to apply for this position. I would like to mention specifically that your strong emphasis on high quality customer service has not only set a benchmark in the industry but is also the main reason of my interest in working at McDonald’s. After browsing over your website for more details of this opportunity, I am eager to apply for this position and be a part of your team.

During my Bachelors in Business Administration, I’ve worked as a customer sales representative in a part time job for two years at the Thompson Media Group Austin. Studying BBA and making use of the theoretical knowledge in my practical life at work, I’ve developed strong leadership skills and the ability to lead effectively even in an extreme dynamic environment. I have consistently exceeded the sales targets and have been awarded the most productive CSR.

Moreover, being an extrovert and a very enthusiastic person I have demonstrated excellent communication skills and ability to develop positive relationships very quickly – both at work and personally. Besides, I have participated in several workshops on leadership, group dynamics and public speaking. With these academic and practical strengths I wish to work for McDonald’s in order to contribute to its goals.

My resume is enclosed for your review. I’d be grateful for an opportunity to further discuss how my skills and knowledge would benefit the McDonald’s management trainee program. I’ll call you after two weeks to arrange an interview and will be available at (363) 000-3214 in the interim. Thank you for your time. I’ll be looking forward to hear from you soon.
