Dear (Mr. or Ms.) (Last Name),
I wanted to apply for the position of catering sales manager for Bon Appetit Catering.
My sales expertise combined with my interest as a “foodie” would make me a wonderful fit for this job. Throughout college, I augmented my income with weekend shifts as a cater waiter, where I saw firsthand all that goes into making a successful event. I am now ready to move to the next level with the position of working on the front-end, finding and advising clients.
My detail oriented nature means that I will be excellent at managing all aspects for an engagement: from the initial planning process to the contracts and overseeing the food and beverage set up and event success. My interpersonal skills allow me to be adept at managing what can occasionally be difficult or emotional customer situations and responding promptly to customer needs.
My goal is to provide excellent customer service and creativity in meeting a variety of special requests and assist the manager with any task that is needed.
My resume is enclosed, along with references from two catering companies with which I have worked.
I look forward to talking with you in more detail about the position and I will follow up with you shortly.
