Dear Ms. Campbell,

I am writing to submit my resume for the open position of Steward at Lark Voyages. With over 15 years of experience in service and hospitality, including seven years as a Steward, I have the skills needed to provide top-notch service in this position.

In my previous work experience as a Steward onboard a large passenger vessel, I provided service to cabins, public rooms, and common areas, and efficiently organized and supervised a housekeeping staff of 100 plus. My practical experience is bolstered by my bachelor’s degree in Hospitality Services.

Some of my skills and career highlights include:

  • Oversaw and provided service for a passenger vessel of 1000 to 2600 guests
  • Responsible for scheduling and managing a staff of over 100 while maintaining productivity levels according to budget and forecast
  • Won “Rising Star of the Month” for October 2016
  • Maintained the rooms and bathrooms in the accommodations up to health standards and clean on a daily basis.
  • Provided training for new hires and current employees of policies and procedures of the vessel.

Having spent seven years as a steward on a large passenger vessel, I know I can meet up the requirements and responsibilities of a Steward aboard a Lark Voyages ship. I offer highly attentive service, keen management style and an eye for detail. I am available for a personal interview to discuss my experience and future goals and also learn more about the position. Thank you for considering me.
