Hotel Management,

I am interested in acquiring a front desk position with a hotel in Austin, and since I have had previous experience at the front desk at the Adolphus Hotel in downtown Dallas, I have much to offer in regards to the working knowledge of the hotel business.

In my most recent employment with Texas Student Media at the University of Texas at Austin, I had 16 years of service and commitment as the Assistant to the Director of Texas Student Media, Advisor to the students, Secretary to the Board of Trustees, and a Liaison between TSM and the faculty, staff and students at UT.  I have also had many years of experience in retail management, so I have had extensive experience working with the public.

With my experience and knowledge of UT and the hotel industry, I know that I can be an asset to your hotel.

I hope that you will review my application.  Thank you for your consideration.

Sincerely,

Jack Simons

Don't Be Fooled

  • When selling, do not put your home address in your ad.
  • To avoid scams, buy and sell with people you can meet locally, in person.
  • When meeting with someone you don't know, meet in a public place. If that's not possible, have a buddy with you. Also, carry a cell phone; if you feel unsafe, you can call a trusted friend, and stay on the line.
  • Never give out financial or private information like account numbers, PayPal login, or social security number.
  • If an offer sounds too good to be true, it is. Walk away!
