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.
