Sample cover letter for Full Time position at Hotel


Event Coordinator

Dear Sir/Madam,

Please find enclosed my CV for the position of Celebrity Procurement Trainee as advertised on www.indeed.com.

I believe that the nature of my degree course has prepared me for this position. It involved a great deal of organisation, planning, requiring initiative, self-motivation and a wide range of skills. I have excellent communication and interpersonal skills and have had experience delivering first class customer care. I am fully confident in working with all Microsoft Office software and have had experience with databases, spreadsheets, power-point etc. I enjoy working with all aspects of social media.

All of my previous work experience has been extremely customer service focused which is essential when organising and running events. I have been working as an Event Coordinator for the past 4 months and it has given me a huge insight into the world of events and I am continuing to develop my skills each day. Day to day I deal with customer enquiries, conduct show rounds of the venue, handle the budget, create reports, source items for the events, respond to emails and telephone calls and overall run the events. A few of the events I have the pleasure of organising are; weddings, dinners, birthday parties, award ceremonies, drinks receptions and graduations. I have also worked with other event companies during my time at university such as; conference and exhibition based companies, in the fashion industry, music events and large awards dinners. All of these experiences helped me to develop my skills and broaden my knowledge of the events industry.

In the summer of 2013 and 2014 I got the opportunity to work in the United States at a family run theme park which allowed me to experience the American culture and develop my customer service skills and meet people from all over the world. I am very eager to travel the world and experience new cultures. 

I am a fast learner and accurate worker, with a keen eye for detail, and I would be very grateful for the opportunity to progress in the business environment. I am very outgoing, ambitious, hard-working and enjoy working in a fast paced environment. I have gained knowledge through my course which has given me valuable insight into the area of business. I have the enthusiasm and determination to ensure that I am successful. I believe I could be an excellent asset to your organisation.

Thank you for taking the time to consider this application and I look forward to hearing from you in the near future.

Yours faithfully

Sophie Callander
