One place where being shy isn’t going to get you anything is when you write a cover letter.
For most of us, bragging about our abilities can be a bit of a strange thing.
But it is necessary to do when writing a cover letter.
Remember that the more articulate you are in one, the better your chances become at bagging that very important interview, which will eventually lead you to a successful career.
Using power phrases is one thing – anchoring them with accomplishments is another.
Promises of providing benefits to the company, or mention of personal characteristics are both equally important in a cover letter.
While you may not really feel that you have accomplished much in the past few years, you will be surprised to see how much you have actually achieved with a thorough self-analysis. Use this to your advantage in a cover letter.
Hotel Front Office Supervisor Cover Letter Example
July 7, 2022
Mr. Denver Lodge
40 Long Avenue
Pittsford, VT 01932
Dear Mr. Lodge:
I am very interested in speaking with you regarding a Hotel Front Office Supervisor position with Holiday Inn. My hospitality and customer experiences have prepared me well to make a significant contribution to your organization.
Leading and supervising a front office team to deliver exceptional first contact services in a highly acclaimed hospitality facility, is my niche. Having worked as a hotel front office supervisor for 6 years at The Hyatt, I am more than merely familiar with working towards ensuring that service standards are met – at the first level.
Last year, I managed to streamline front office procedures at The Hyatt by placing a range of complex systems in place, resulting in a staggering increase in efficiency at this level. Ascertaining outstanding guest services at all times, maintaining a friendly and courteous demeanor, responding to requests in a time-efficient manner, and supervising daily shift processes are all in a day’s work for me.
At heart, I am a great marketer who possesses exceptional skills in using suggestive selling techniques to increase both occupancy and revenue of the hotel. With my ability to build strong and long-lasting relationships with guests, and liaise effectively with all facility departments, I am sure to be a credit to Holiday Inn – in more ways than one. Ensuring an optimal level of service and hospitality is my main focus while working as a hotel front office supervisor.
I believe that a face-to-face meeting will provide you with a better idea of how I can benefit your facility in the role of a hotel front office supervisor. I will call to set up a meeting next week. Until then, please do not hesitate to call me if you need any additional information.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
