Please accept this letter and the enclosed resume, in confidence, as my expressed interest in securing a position with your company in a capacity that will most effectively utilize my leadership skills, ability to conceptualize, implement, and direct strategic marketing plans to develop business; and extensive, successful experience in total hospitality management. I am seeking a role in an environment that acknowledges personal initiative and independent decision-making, encourages team work, and demands both flexibility and professionalism.
As my resume reflects, I have built a solid foundation in the various aspects of elevating, expanding, and developing restaurant, hotel, resort, and entertainment businesses, not only through my current role as the Owner/Manager and Talent Buyer for a popular bar & eatery, but also through my successful endeavors in total business management for a restaurant/concert facility, a hotel, and a resort. As the owner and manager of one of Cleveland's popular downtown restaurants/concert venues, I was able to fully utilize my expertise in identifying, developing, and managing opportunities previously-overlooked by others while demonstrating my commitment to exceed client/patron expectations. My years of experience encompass responsibilities in all aspects of restaurant management; special event planning; developing new business markets while earning and maintaining the loyalty of established customers; recruiting, training, coaching, and mentoring high-caliber personnel; marketing; sales; total business management; P&L accountability; goal setting; and identification and resolution of problems.
I am a disciplined, creative, highly-motivated leader seeking another rewarding position where I can continue to utilize my experience, skills, talent, and interest were I can contribute to the success of an established organization. I am confident my diverse skills, proven experience as a creative marketing and promotions guru, and desire to continue utilizing my knowledge of the vast hospitality industry talent would be an asset to your team. I would welcome the opportunity to speak with you, in person, to discuss my particular qualifications and goals.
Thank you for your attention, consideration, and forthcoming reply.

Pick up a book, magazine or screen, and more than likely you'll come across some typography designed by Matthew Carter. In this charming talk, the man behind typefaces such as Verdana, Georgia and Bell Centennial (designed just for phone books -- remember them?), takes us on a spin through a career focused on the very last pixel of each letter of a font.
Astronomers believe that every star in the galaxy has a planet, one fifth of which might harbor life. Only we haven't seen any of them -- yet. Jeremy Kasdin and his team are looking to change that with the design and engineering of an extraordinary piece of equipment: a flower petal-shaped "starshade" that allows a telescope to photograph planets from 50,000 kilometers away. It is, he says, the "coolest possible science."
Puberty is an awkward time for just about everybody, but for transgender teens it can be a nightmare, as they grow overnight into bodies they aren't comfortable with. In a heartfelt talk, endocrinologist Norman Spack tells a personal story of how he became one of the few doctors in the US to treat minors with hormone replacement therapy. By staving off the effects of puberty, Spack gives trans teens the time they need. (Filmed at TEDxBeaconStreet.)
The parenting section of the bookstore is overwhelming—it's "a giant, candy-colored monument to our collective panic," as writer Jennifer Senior puts it. Why is parenthood filled with so much anxiety? Because the goal of modern, middle-class parents—to raise happy children—is so elusive. In this honest talk, she offers some kinder and more achievable aims.
