To Whom It May Concern:
In today’s Job Market in Texarkana many are finding it difficult with the application process and resume situations. I strongly urge you to look past my servitude in the Bartending and Waitress fields and see that this has given me excellent customer face to face skills in dealings with upset situations of the public and hard to manage personalities of employees and customers. As further reading of my resume you will see I am a very well rounded individual with extensive background in customer service and leadership skills. Do not discredit my ability to handle hard work, I am not scared nor am shy to Manuel Labor or being on my feet for shirts over 10hrs or fast paced or no breaks environment …..
My only request is that an opportunity be given in an interview to further see my potential as an asset to your company.
Thank You for your time in brief for consideration,
