Dear Mr. Duck:
RE: POSITION OF BARISTA AT BLENZ COFFEE
I am inquiring about the open position of a Barista, as advertised in the Times Colonist, on Saturday, April 8, 2014. I would like to be considered for the position of a Barista, and have enclosed my resume for your consideration.
Currently, I am a student at Oak Bay High School, and the representative of the grade eleven student body. With strong organizational skills, and a good work ethic, I strive hard to achieve perfection, and always get the job done. As well, I have a considerable amount of experience in preparing and serving different kinds of coffee, to my parents and their friends. To work in a restaurant I think it is necessary to know basic first aid, and as a trained lifeguard, I am qualified to perform CPR.
Your advertisement expresses the need for a part-time Barista to work evenings and graveyard shifts. I have a flexible schedule, and am willing to work any hours. I’ve been very impressed with Blenz Coffee’s friendly atmosphere and attentive staff and would like to be part of Blenz’s ongoing commitment to their clients.
I look forward to hearing from you, and would appreciate the opportunity to discuss my qualifications with you further. I would be delighted to participate in a personal interview at a time and location that is convenient to you. You can reach me at 778-484-9848. Thank you for your time and consideration.

Dear Ms. Rubble:
RE: Position of Cashier
I am writing to apply for a cashier position at the Admirals Walk Thrifty Foods. I came across the advertisement on the internet while using the Times Colonist online classifieds search engine. My resume is enclosed and my references are available upon request.
My four years experience on a soccer team have allowed me to gain excellent leadership skills towards people with less experience and the ability to adapt to unexpected circumstances. The cashiers at Thrifty Foods are always cheerful and efficient, and I would be happy to add my own personable and positive attitude to the staff. With a sometimes limited time to learn the material in school, I have become a quick learner which is helpful especially with memorizing the produce codes to keep the check-out process streamlined and customers happy.
I always enjoy being in Thrifty Foods when grocery shopping because the store is always clean and organized with all the workers having something to do but are not too busy to help customers who require assistance. I also appreciate when management posts why a product has been pulled from the shelves, or other reasons, so the customer always feels informed and looked after. I would be happy to participate in an interview, and I can be contacted at (250) 123-4567.
Thank you for taking the time to consider and read my letter and resume. I appreciate your courtesy, and I look forward to talking to you in person.
