Hello, My name is Dannette Robinson and I am interested in one of your bartender positions for the summer and hope that I will be considered as a viable candidate. Why you should hire me over 103,878,434 (Insert laugh here) applicants with equal qualifications ;)   —    
First, I absolutely adore the outdoors and remote destinations in nature. I have come to love the resort industry due to its fast paced nature and opportunities to be exposed to different types of people and cultures. For the most part, working at a property is a great way to save money and enjoy the atmosphere. I feel that I would be the best candidate for the positions that I am applying for within the company for several reasons.
One, because I’m awesome! Just kidding, but really I am a genuinely pleasant person to be around. I’m outgoing, fun, have a great smile, friendly, and upbeat. I’m kind, polite, compassionate, loyal, and love people. Mama raised me right!More importantly, I have a balanced skill set, professionally groomed from a combination of education, experience, and travel. Primarily my work experience is of the food and beverage industry. In which I have mastered positions in casual, upscale, and nightclub venues. I have been promoted to the management  aspect of the industry. However, my capabilities are limitless, and my knowledge and skills are not confined to the restaurant industry. As a young veteran of the hospitality field, I have learned many different aspects of business management that transcends any specified profession. In my schooling, my years were spent as an athlete, manager, recruiter and personal assistant to the athletics department, and in media as a writer and editor. As you can see, written communication is one of my assets. Verbally I am not lacking either. I can have a commanding but non-threatening and warm presence to be noted. Both socially and professionally favorable, I am ambitious, intelligent, and eager to elevate my professional experience.

I come from a great stock of successful parents. My mother having retired in senior management in telecom. My father whom I most shadow, retired under the Houston Rockets as Senior Vice President of Basketball Affairs. I have similar ambitions and possess twice the passion.

I’ve maintained employment in mainly fine dining and high volume upscale venues, as well as casual family environments. I possess both longevity and challenges in my previous work history. I’ve even assisted in catering to high profile guests such as comedian Wanda Sykes, for example.

Since high school, I traveled and worked extensively in the resort circuit. While traveling, I worked primarily in fine dining establishments seasonally in resorts around the country. During this time, I was a server for years, and finally broke the monotony and began bartending.   

I have the experience necessary in the food and beverage department. I have been an excellent bartender and server for several years in various styles of restaurants, nightclubs, and lounges. I have both longevity and seasonal stints in my work history. I have been taught how to properly present wine, and have developed my own personal ways of selling features and what I call add-ons (alcohol, appetizers, desserts….a jackelope…had to sneak something in there). I have been told my entire career that I am an attentive, professional server and bartender, and have often enjoyed repeat guests(or call parties) when appropriate.

If you have managed to read through all of this, you now have a pretty good idea about my character and personality. Shall there be a position open, please feel free to contact me. If not, please consider me in the future shall something arise. Thank you for your time.  My  resume is listed below.

Looking for Steamboat Job

To whom it may concern:

My name is Christian Blackburn and I was born and raised in Lexington, KY. I am twenty-three years old and will graduate from the University of Kentucky with a degree in business this coming December. Nothing would fit my personality more than to be able to obtain a job in marketing with a major ski resort out west. I have been snowboarding since I have been in the sixth grade, and have been out to Steamboat once and loved it. It fits my lifestyle and what I want to do and accomplish in my career. Are there any entry level marketing positions available that I could apply for or maybe even a marketing internship? I would have 5 months experience with a marketing department by then and over 5 years of experience in the hospitality industry. Look forward to hearing back from your department soon.

With regards,

Christian Blackburn
