Dear Mr. Gusto,

As a regular Tasty Bites customer, I am writing to express my intent in the Sous Chef position advertised in the June issue of I Love to Cook magazine. My resume is attached for your consideration. (Must specifically address the position desired as well as the website or publication of the job advertisement.)

I am an innovative, energetic, and diligent chef with experience in the Italian cuisine in the course of over 10 years. My passion for cooking began on a trip to Italy, where I tasted various types of flavorful foods. As the food adventures occurred, the more I wondered what ingredients they consisted of and how they were prepared. It was then that I discovered that I want to be able concoct foods for other people and give them the same satisfaction I receive when I consume those foods. (In addition to stating your traits, you can briefly describe how you developed your interest in culinary arts.)

After 6 months from this trip, I returned to Italy to undergo professional training from Pepperoni University. I then worked 10 years as a Chef at Cibo Restaurant there. I mastered not only the savvy techniques in preparing the delicious foods, but also became highly proficient in overseeing all tasks are done properly for all positions in the kitchen, scheduling the employees, creating menus, and assigning prices as I worked very closely with the executive chef. Now that I have permanently returned to California, I would like the opportunity to work for the restaurant I know and love the most. With the skills that I have gained, I am positive that I will contribute my talent in providing success and growth for Tasty Bites. (Tell of your experience in culinary arts including responsibilities you had in your daily regimen.)

I would like the opportunity to meet with you. If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact me by phone at (555) 555-5555 or by email at (Give contact information.)

Thank you for your consideration. I look forward to scheduling an interview where I can talk more about my interests and qualifications. (Express gratitude for their time.)
