To Whom It May Concern,

I saw the advertisement the other day that your company is looking for some hardworking and creative chefs for your new branch in (name of the place) by the name (name of the franchise).

First of all, I would like to congratulate you on opening a new restaurant. Your company’s name is indeed one of the most trustworthy names. I really appreciate this vision of yours of not only serving more and more no of costumers but also making them fall in love with your food. The best thing I like about your restaurants is that you clearly focus a lot on the quality of the food served to the customer.

I, fortunately, had a chance of visiting the (name of the place) in (name of the area). I was very pleased to look at the clean environment. The staff working in that restaurant was undoubtedly very polite and helpful. They were quick enough in judging the personality of the customer and telling the best dishes according to that. They were kind enough to tell me the most liked dishes in the restaurant. I ordered two of them and I can safely say they were the best I ever had. That was the day I decided I want to work with your company and create dishes that customers would love.

The moment I saw the advertisement it was a wish come true for me. I quickly grabbed my laptop and started applying for the position of chef in (name of the company). I consider myself to be a perfect fit for this position because of my skills and experience.

I have graduated from (name of the university) in (date/year). Later I went to (name of the university) to do my masters in (name of the subject). During my study, I volunteered to work under the supervision of (name of the chef) working in (name of the company). I worked with him for 4 years. During these 4 years, I learned a lot. I was not only able to improve my skills but also got confidence not only in my cooking but also in my own self. My attitude towards people changed drastically in those 4 years and I became more of an extrovert.

After I moved to (name of the university) for higher studies I started my job at (name of the company). I used to attend my classes in the morning and serve my customers in the evening shift. This job played a great part in improving my personality.

I learned to take criticism and perform better with my dish. I during my tenure improved so much that I created my signature dish. I am proud to state that my dish was among the most ordered food of the restaurant. I would love to meet you some day and tell you more about my experiences and expertise. I look forward to meeting you and your staff in the interviews.

Yours Sincerely,
