Manager Manteo Resort 3762 Lakeshore Rd Kelowna, BC V1W 3L4 Dear Kim Desrosier, I am applying for a job as a room attendant, line/prep cook or as a resort runner. My family has a timeshare with Manteo Resort and I have always loved staying here. I would love to help contribute to the positive atmosphere. Please find enclosed a copy of my resume and job application. I am very interested in the position. From my resume, you will note that I have worked at the Cottonwoods Care Center, ActiveCare Medical, and at the Perking Lot in the Kelowna General Hospital. All of these jobs required that I regularly interact with a large number of different people. These jobs have given me the ability to express myself precisely and communicate effectively with a variety of people, which is important for work in the service industry, such as being employed in a hotel. I also learned how to be patient and react positively to both negative and positive feedback. I trained in karate for many years, which taught me the patience necessary when dealing with a diverse amount of people. I am also currently taking several honours classes at school, so I am used to dealing with a heavy workload and prioritizing. I work effectively both in a team environment as well as doing work by myself. I am looking for a summer job and I always feel welcome whenever I stay at Manteo resort or use its facilities. I think this job would give me the best opportunities to learn about the hotel industry and further help me develop skills that I can use for the rest of my life. Manteo is a positive working environment and I feel I can contribute to that as a staff member. I would very much appreciate the opportunity to discuss the position with you in person. Thank you for your time and consideration and I look forward to meeting you at your convenience. Sincerely,

Camille McLellan
