Dear Mr./Ms. Last Name of Manager:
I am responding to an ad I saw in the local newspaper, [Name of Paper], for a waitress position. I have attached my resume for you to review, and you will be able to see I am more than qualified for the job.
While I have had great jobs in the past that have been in the restaurant industry, I have always seemed to get in with a company that has went under or downsized. The biggest concern for me is to not only find a job that pays well, but also find a company that is well established.
I have done some research on the [Name of Company] and must say I am pleased by what I have found. This company has a strong history for success and has great tenor among the employees. I feel with my experience and drive would be a great addition to your company.
I am available to work the hours specified in the ad and any overtime that might be needed. Please review my resume and see how my qualification would match your needs in a position. I can be reached at 555-890-7659 to discuss this position further. It would be a privilege to work for such a wonderful company.
