Sample Receptionist Cover Letter

A receptionist cover letter lets the hiring manager know that the applicant is good with people, able to handle a large volume of calls at the front desk, and also keep visiting vendors and customers content as they wait for their appointments with an employee. All receptionist cover letters should include specific information such as this in order to set the applicants apart from others competing for the job.

Dear Mr. Marsh:

Your posting on JobBankUSA.com for a part-time receptionist caught my eye. I am looking for just such a position. I was one of two receptionists for my previous employer, Bishop Bakery, in Bishop, California. This work suits my personality, my season in life, as the mother of two young children, and also offers me an opportunity to support a company in our community, namely yours.

I know what is expected of a receptionist--communication skills on the phone and in person, a pleasant voice and energetic manner, knowledge of the company and its products. I could begin immediately.

Would you like to meet to talk over the job you are offering and to see if I meet your requirements? If so, please call me on my cell phone: 456-777-8989 to set up a date and time that works for you. I appreciate your reading my cover letter.
