Dear Mr. Hazelton,
I’m submitting my resume for your review and consideration in response to your ad for a Hotel General Manager. I started in the industry as a bellman at the Wysteria Hotel and have advanced to Assistant General Manager in just over a decade. During that time I earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Hotel Management and feel I can bring the benefit of my experience and education to your establishment.
In my current position as Assistant General Manager I have oversight of the food lodging and housekeeping activities of the hotel. In addition I work hand-in-hand with the General Manager to ensure profitability exceptional customer service and high quality staff performance. Although there are multiple layers of management I have experience with most departments including marketing and sales and personnel. With my hands-on experience in almost every sector of the industry I believe I can step into the role of General Manager with every confidence of success. It’s why I was asked to be interim General Manager because of an extended illness. The General Manager’s health returned and the health of the hotel remained strong under my temporary management.
I’m ready for the next step in my career and I look forward to hearing from you at your earliest convenience to discuss this opportunity. Thank you for your time and consideration.
