Dear Mr. Smith:
I am very interested in joining an organization such as (name the organization). During my online research, I was very excited to learn about the current opening for a (specify position), and feel my qualifications and your requirements are a good match. For your review, I have attached my resume for your consideration.
I am seeking to secure a position with your long-term care facility that would benefit from my well-rounded background as a dietary supervisor with St. Agnes, a regionally leading long-term care facility.
Having more than 15 years of experience in food service management, I was able to make an immediate contribution to earlier positions. In four short years, I received rapid promotions leading to my current position as dietary supervisor.
Considering the narrow margin for advancement, this was certainly recognized as an achievement by all concerned.
As dietary supervisor, I have efficiently managed multifaceted dietary service operations supporting this large facility with 450 beds and 800 employees. Briefly, this includes directing a staff of 150 dietary aids and cooks, improving processes, reducing costs, increasing productivity, and ensuring compliance with dietary requirements and regulatory guidelines.
With the scope of my knowledge, experience, and credential as a Certified Food Protection Professional, I would like to move my career towards director of dietary services. Unfortunately, it is unlikely that the opportunity for future growth will become available for quite some time.
If you feel there is a mutual interest, I would welcome the opportunity to meet with you to learn more about your company, the requirements of the position, and how my qualifications would be a good fit.
Thank you in advance for your time and consideration of my candidacy. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
