Dear Billie Jean:

I am writing to apply for the position of Student Assistant within the department of Events Management and Guest Services. I am a sophomore at the University of San Francisco, majoring in Hospitality Management with a minor in Politics. Based on my passion for the hospitality and events industry and past experience I know I will be a great asset to the Events Management team.

After reading the qualifications for the job, I am confident that my experiences working as a server at Mel’s Diner and a barista at Starbucks have prepared me to contribute to the Events Management team. In both these roles I had to rely on my attention to detail to ensure orders were properly filled, special requests honored, and customers’ satisfaction remained high. Additionally, I used communication with my teammates to make sure that everything was operating smoothly and everyone was getting the support they needed. I am confident that my communication skills will also make me a great member of the EMGS team.

In addition to my hospitality experience, I possess an advanced knowledge of Microsoft Office, the assembly of audio and visual technologies, and administrative duties such as answering client emails and phone calls. Furthermore, my ability to lift up to 150 pounds will be vital in the assistance of breaking down or setting up of furniture.

My industry experience and academic background have prepared me well for this position, and I am excited to use my skills to support the daily events that make USF such a special place. I’ve included my resume for your consideration. Please feel free to contact me at your convenience to discuss my background as well as my qualifications for the role. Thank you for your time and consideration.
