Dear Sir or Madam,

I would like to apply for a managerial position in the Restaurant and Food
Service industry. I believe that my work experience, education and
enthusiasm make me the ideal candidate for this position.
My experience relating to this field has ranged from restaurant management
and operation to coaching and integrating new staff in all levels of
operations. My most recent position as an Area Coach has given me exposure
to operating multi-brand franchise stores. My organizational skills and the
multi tasking capabilities proved to be vital in this position as I was
responsible for recruiting labour, setting up new stores, procuring equipment,
negotiating contracts with suppliers and obtaining operating permits.
I am extremely self motivated, hard working and grasp new concepts easily.
My communication skills and goal oriented nature allows me to function well
when working in group environments as well as individually. I believe that
my professional work ethic, my attention to detail along with my managerial
background make me a valuable asset to your team.
My resume has been enclosed for your review. Thank you for your time. I
look forward to hearing from you.
Sincerely,
Junaid Quraishi
