Dear Mr. Matuza:
Recently I spoke with your Director of Food Services, Gordon Burger. He
informed me of your intention to implement a more health-conscious food
program at Voguefoods, Inc., and suggested I contact you. My credentials in
the food science industry would enable me to successfully promote the
growth of such a program.
In the spring of next year, I will be receiving a Master's Degree in Hospitality
Business from Michigan State University. Over four years of work experience
in the field of food service follows me in addition to my degree. This
opportunity has familiarized me with diet therapy, food chemistry, menu
planning and food administration.
The American Institutions Food Service Association recently recognized me
for my achievements in menu planning with the Hilton Hotels Corporation. I
am health-conscious and enjoy working closely with others. I believe that I
could make a significant contribution to your organization.
I have enclosed a resume for your review. I would like the opportunity to
meet with you to discuss how I might be able to promote the growth of a
nutritional food program at Voguefoods. I will call you on Monday, January
16, to determine your interest and, if appropriate, to arrange for a personal
I am looking forward to meeting with you.
