Sample Answer 1:

Dear Sir or Madam,

I am writing to apply for the part-time weekend job at your hotel that you advertised in the 'Daily Sunday Times' newspaper on 5th June 2020. I have similar job experiences and I am hoping that you would look at my resume which I am attaching with this letter and consider me for the job.

I am Preeti Ghuraiya, studying a general management course at Garden City College, Bangalore and I can fluently speak English and Hindi. This job opportunity looks very interesting and something in line with my work experience.

I have worked as a receptionist and a front desk executive with Hotel Holiday Inn in Delhi from June 2018 till March 2021. I was responsible for interacting with clients, handling client check-in and checkout and so on. I also have some experience as a waitress. I believe my job experience would help me perform my responsibilities effectively in your hotel.

The job description in the newspaper does not give details of the responsibilities. Would you be able to let me know about the duties that I will be required to do and if you require any specific skills? I can start immediately and can work for the whole day every weekend.

Please let me know if you need further information regarding my job experience and education. I will be able to provide references for my experience.

Looking forward to meeting you to discuss further.

Yours faithfully,

Preeti Arora

Model Answer 2:

Dear Sir or Madam,

I am writing this letter to express my interest in a part-time weekend work position at your hotel, which was advertised in one of the local newspapers in our town a couple of days ago.

To introduce myself a little, I am a 21 years old university student, and I am currently studying in my final year at City University. My major is "Hotel and Tourism Management" and I am looking for a part-time job in a hotel to gain some hands-on knowledge. Since I live in the same town, I have had the opportunity to see your hotel. I also know how your hotel business contributes to the local economy of our town.

Anyway, I think that I would be able to offer a great service to your hotel since I have already worked at a hotel in the past as a part-time Front Desk Officer. Besides, I have also worked as a part-time waiter at one of the busiest restaurants in our town. Moreover, I am energetic, and I have good communication skills.

Finally, I am willing to start as soon as you ask me, only if you choose to hire me and tell me exactly what my roles and responsibilities should be at your hotel.

Hope to hear from you soon.

Yours faithfully,

Chuck Moore
