Waiter Cover Letter

| November 29, 2012

Failing to send a/an Waiter Cover Letter can have a negative impact on your job search efforts; first, you are missing out on a prime opportunity to introduce yourself, your strengths, and your unique value, and second you risk appearing sloppy and incomplete without a cover letter.

How to create your Waiter Cover Letter

Your address and the date can be left-justified, or centered.

Your Street Address
City, State Zip Code
Telephone Number
E-mail Address

Put today’s date on the cover letter. Next, include your contact’s information, which can include:

Month, Day, Year

Ms. Mary Jones
Director of Human Resources
Human Resources Department
(Organization name)
South Main Street, Rte. 27A
East Islip, NY 11730

Always write to a specific individual – never address covering letters to Dear ‘Sir’ or ‘Madam’. Use “Mr”, “Mrs”, “Miss” or “Ms” and then your contact’s surname. Never use their first name.

Dear Mr. /Ms. (Hiring Manager’s Name),
