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.

Hamish Jolly, an ocean swimmer in Australia, wanted a wetsuit that would deter a curious shark from mistaking him for a potential source of nourishment. (Which, statistically, is rare, but certainly a fate worth avoiding.) Working with a team of scientists, he and his friends came up with a fresh approach — not a shark cage, not a suit of chain-mail, but a sleek suit that taps our growing understanding of shark vision.
Our energy future depends on nuclear fusion, says Michel Laberge. The plasma physicist runs a small company with a big idea for a new type of nuclear reactor that could produce clean, cheap energy. His secret recipe? High speeds, scorching temperatures and crushing pressure. In this hopeful talk, he explains how nuclear fusion might be just around the corner.
At her first museum job, art historian Sarah Lewis noticed something important about an artist she was studying: Not every artwork was a total masterpiece. She asks us to consider the role of the almost-failure, the near win, in our own lives. In our pursuit of success and mastery, is it actually our near wins that push us forward?
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.
