Dear [Hiring Manager’s Name],
My name is [Your Name], and I heard from my friend Jack Daley (a [TARGET COMPANY] regular) that a bartender position opened up recently at your establishment. I’ve enjoyed a few drinks myself at [TARGET COMPANY], and it’s one of the hippest places in Manhattan to enjoy a cocktail and unwind. I’d love to bring my 15 years of service industry and bartending experience to your bar!
I’ve been working in the New York City bar scene for a while now, and I can’t get enough of it. Taking care of the regulars during off-hours and helping handle the Saturday night rush – I enjoy it all. Also, my extensive knowledge of alcohol allows me to help customers from all walks of life find drinks they love. It’s easier to maintain a positive environment if the customers are happy, so I make sure to provide them with suitable drinks and friendly service.
I heard that you are trying to market more to craft beer drinkers. I have extensive knowledge of beer (styles, flavor profiles, the brewing process), and would love to bring my passion for this industry to [TARGET COMPANY]. Plus I can make some mean cocktails too (my favorite being the classic Old Fashioned).
I’d love to come in for an interview and make you a cocktail if you’d like to test my ability. I’m happy to meet you during the day Monday through Friday. Although evenings will be tough with my current schedule, I could make the time if we schedule ahead! Feel free to email me at [EMAIL], or call me at [PHONE NUMBER] at your convenience. I look forward to hearing back from you! Thanks for your time, take care for now.
