Model Answer 1:

Dear Sir or Madam,

I am writing to apply for the assistant manager post in your Hotel - The Adventure Inn, that you have advertised in a local newspaper recently. I would really appreciate if you could spare some of your precious time to further discuss my candidacy in a formal interview.

I would like to work as an assistant manager that would enable me to work closely with the hotel staffs and with the management. This way, I would be able to best serve my position on the one hand and learn valuable experience on the other hand.

I have completed my graduation from the City University in 2014 and my major was Tourism and Hospitality. Afterwards, I have worked for two four-star hotels and my current job as an assistant manager at the Gilbert hotel makes me a suitable candidate for the post. I do not see enough career growth opportunity with my current employer and that's why would like to switch my job.

I look forward to hearing from you soon. Should you need any further details, please do not hesitate to call me.

Yours sincerely,

Paul Jenkins
