Dear Mr. Edward:
Your evergreen advertising slogan ‘Have a crumby day!’ is the best one I have heard till date. Usually under the yellow bordered classic caption there is a description of one of your latest sugary product, fresh from the oven. Yesterday however I noticed a bakery assistant wanted sign under the caption. I am writing in response to the same since I am equipped with all the qualifications you require for the job.
I bring a deep rooted passion for baking with a strong desire to excel in the art. Having 2+ years of hands on experience in baking assistance to my credit, I am well versed in general duties of the position along with state issued hygiene and sanitation principles. A team player with exceptional analytical skills, I am able to mix, prepare, bake and calculate ratios of ingredients to produce high quality breads and other baked items as per given instructions. In addition, I am also adept at food service and cashiering duties which I am sure will come in very handy at Busken.
I would welcome a meeting with you to establish my candidacy further. Please call me at (005) 222-1111 any time to set up an interview. I can’t wait to join the awesome team of skilled bakers in capacity of bakery assistant at Busken, Cincinnati.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
