Many employers consider a cover letter as a “writing sample” to gauge how well you are able to communicate. Since communication is the basis of many jobs (including that of a hospitality aide), it is imperative that you show your communication skills to a potential employer. Your cover letter for a hospitality aide position needs to be specific – by putting your best foot forward, you can actually increase your chances of being called in for an interview.
A response-producing cover letter can only be written if you can highlight your skills and experiences properly – those most applicable to the job that you are applying for. Some general rules about writing a good cover letter include:
• Addressing your letter to a specific person
• Tailoring your letter to specific situations by doing research
• Avoiding flowery language
• Giving examples that support your skills and qualifications
These golden rules are sure to ensure a well written and articulate cover letter. Depending on the type of job that you are applying for, you may want to go through a corresponding list of skills and interests before you begin writing a cover letter.

Dear Mr. Wes:
As a strong advocate for those with physical and emotional challenges, I am very excited to see the opening for a Hospitality Aide at Sava Senior Care. Compassion, empathy and medical acumen are some of my attributes that I have developed through extensive community service over the previous 5 years. These abilities are sure to be of interest to you which is why I would like to invite you to review the enclosed resume.
Along with knowledge of providing bedside care to residents, I have also gained practical experience in handling patients who may not be too willing to be cured. Thanks to dementia care course, I am able to handle even the most difficult of patients suffering from Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s. I am also adept at handling the nutritional needs of the elderly and can even create meal plans on my own, based on each individual patient’s medical condition.
Owing to my calm nature and a genuine love for helping the elderly, I believe that I fit the role of a hospitality aide perfectly. I will contact you soon to ask for a mutually agreeable time when we can meet and discuss this position further. I can be contacted at (333) 333-3333 if you wish to speak to me. Thank you very much for your time and consideration.
