Re: Position HY123456

Dear Employment Director:

It's all about heads and beds and customer satisfaction in the hospitality industry. It takes an innovative and tenacious manager to face successfully the tremendous challenges confronting today's leading hotels. I have made a career out of turning around faltering properties, raising service standards, increasing organizational efficiency, and significantly improving bottom-line profits.

I am currently the General Manager of the Executive Hotel, Denver. The owners have decided to convert the property into an assisted-living facility, and while they have asked me to stay with the property, my passion for the hotel business necessitates that I move on. I am seeking a management position with an upscale hotel such as yours.

My resume speaks to my history of decisive leadership as well as strong financial and operating results. Most notably I have

  • Turned unprofitable properties into consistently performing, multimillion-dollar organizations.
  • Streamlined operations and eliminated duplicate functions to reduce costs and increase productivity and revenue.
  • Integrated finance and operations, creating proactive business units focused on the bottom line and positioned for long-term growth and profitability.

The value I bring to Hyatt Hotels is broad experience spanning all core business functions with a primary focus on operations and finance. My success is directly attributable to my ability to unify organizations, initiate action, and deliver results.

I welcome the chance to explore any current assignments commensurate with my management skills. I am willing to relocate for the right opportunity.

Thank you for your time and consideration, and I look forward to hearing from you.


Joyce Palmer
