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.

You know the drill - money is tight so your spouse tells you to not spend too much money. So you start 'brown-bagging-it' to work. You feel a little foolish, maybe a little humiliated, that you’re forced to do this but you have no other choice. So you make up some story for your co-workers like, 'I’m trying a special diet' so you don’t look like a cheap-skate.

Perhaps you’ve punched out a paper doll or folded an origami swan? TED Fellow Manu Prakash and his team have created a microscope made of paper that's just as easy to fold and use. A sparkling demo that shows how this invention could revolutionize healthcare in developing countries … and turn almost anything into a fun, hands-on science experiment.
Vending machines generally offer up sodas, candy bars and chips. Not so for the one created by TED Fellow Gabe Barcia-Colombo. This artist has dreamed up a DNA Vending Machine, which dispenses extracted human DNA, packaged in a vial along with a collectible photo of the person who gave it. It’s charming and quirky, but points out larger ethical issues that will arise as access to biotechnology increases.
Privacy researcher Christopher Soghoian sees the landscape of government surveillance shifting beneath our feet, as an industry grows to support monitoring programs. Through private companies, he says, governments are buying technology with the capacity to break into computers, steal documents and monitor activity — without detection. This TED Fellow gives an unsettling look at what's to come.
