Dear Mr. Doe:

I would like to be considered for a waiter position at MHP as advertised on your website. My background in hospitality industry along with my friendly approach and neat appearance makes me an ideal applicant for the position. Utilizing my waitressing skills, I would bring a positive difference to the profits and client retention at your restaurant.

As required, I am adept at setting tables, arranging place settings, placing table decorations, welcoming and serving guests and accepting guest food and beverage orders in a professional manner.

Besides table duties, I am highly skilled in relaying orders to kitchen staff, collecting payments from patrons and maintaining proper record for orders and funds. I am also able to process credit card payments and use point of sale registers to exactly secure payments. The enclosed resume will provide you with more details about my relevant qualifications and skills.

I am eager to discuss your waiter position and to learn more regarding the MHP. I will call you in the next few days to follow up and see if it is suitable to arrange an interview. In the meantime, I can be contacted at (999) 555-9999.
