Cover Letter for Entry Level Hotel Housekeeping Job

When you’re on the lookout for a promising job, you’re often told that you need a compelling resume, and you’re good to go. That, however, isn’t the case always.  For your resume to make a mark, it needs to be accompanied by a cover letter.

For the uninitiated, let us tell you, that a cover letter holds immense importance. And here’s why –

  • It gives the recruiter a sneak-peek into your written communication skills and your command over the language.
  • It helps you make an impactful case in favor of your capabilities, unlike your resume, which primarily focusses on your achievements and experience.

It for this very reason that drafting a cover letter is often easier said than done.

Giving due consideration to the aforementioned aspects, our specialists have created an ideal cover letter template for an entry-level job at the hotel housekeeping industry. It is our belief that this template will help you gauge what needs to go in your cover letter, along with ensuring that you know the standardized formatting and writing style that you need to adapt for the same.

Re: Opening for the position of Hotel Housekeeper

Dear Mr. Parker,

It was on 2nd of March, that I came across a posting regarding the open position for a housekeeper at your esteemed hotel. It is with pleasure that I say, that I have been on the lookout for a similar job, and would hence, take this opportunity to apply.

The job description given by you matches my qualifications to a great extent, which makes me feel I would be a great fit for it. 

From what it looks like, I can prove to be a good fit for the position, considering my inclination towards offering an impeccable hospitality experience, combined with my inherent organizational skills. Then again, I’m more than just sure that I will be able to put my knowledge as well as past experience to good use, and prove to be an indispensable asset to your establishment.

In the past, I have worked at Hotel Park Inn, for over 2 years. My responsibilities there included cleaning of the rooms, hallways as well as the banquet hall. Although I held a part-time position at the hotel, I gained a reasonable reputation for developing good relations with various guests and visitors, not to mention those created with the hotel staff. My experience at the Hotel has significantly improved my understanding of this sector, which is something I am proud of. Moreover, I have come to understand that there are certain aspects at which I truly excel. These include –

  • Cleaning and preparing the room single-handedly, well within 20 minutes of time.
  • Innate ability to be able to stay composed in panic-bound situations, and fixing the problem at hand.
  • Greeting the guests warmly, and ensuring that they’re as comfortable as possible.

I am only applying for this position because I am confident that my communication skills and my dedication towards this job are noteworthy.  I would also like to mention here that I take the utmost pride in my work and therefore maintain integrity.

Mr. Parker, I can assure you of my work ethics as well as the value that I will bring to your organization. I am sure that the manager at Hotel Park Inn will recommend me for the same.

If the prospect of having me on your team interests you, please feel free to call me at (735) 236-8900 or drop in a mail at samuelgreen@example.com to arrange a meeting.

I look forward to speaking with you!

 

In anticipation of a positive reply.

Sincerely,
Samuel Green
