Sample Bartender Cover Letter

This bartender cover letter focuses on the applicant's experience and ability to mix hundreds to thousands of different kinds of drinks in a restaurant or hotel bar. To separate himself from others seeking the same job, he emphasizes his certification from a bartending school and his talent with people of all kinds, since bartenders generally converse with patrons and even offer advice and directions when requested. Bartender cover letters will help a job seeker land a job if written with enthusiasm and including specific details about his or her qualifications.

Dear Mr. Buckley:

I saw the posting on JobBankUSA.com for employment as a bartender in your restaurant lounge. I live just minutes from your establishment, have certification from Bayside Bartending School and I'm known to be good with people. I enjoy conversation with patrons and I'm one to keep a close eye on their behavior. I will make sure no one under age is served and I will keep the bar free of offenders.

Professional bartenders are important to any restaurant and hotel so I want to assure you that you will not regret hiring me if you choose to do so. I'd be happy to meet with you in person if you'd like to get a feel for my personality and hear more about my experience. Please call 333-345-6787 for an appointment that works for your schedule. I'll be there.

I'm grateful for your time in considering this cover letter.
