Please accept this letter and my resume as my application for the food & beverage internship with Marriott Vacations Worldwide. I became aware of the opportunity through my advisor, at University.

During that time, I was directly involved in leading operations of establishing schedules, receiving product, and inventory management. I also had the responsibility of placing orders with distributors and training new employees. My goal is to find a position within the hospitality industry with opportunities for career progression. I enjoy working in this industry and look forward to contributing to Marriott in any way I can.
