Dear Andrea Klauss,

Please accept my resume as application for the Downtown Cinemas Box Office Attendant position advertised by the Help Wanted sign you have posted. I am very excited about possibly joining your team

As someone who goes to see movies all the time, I know what it takes to be a good box office attendant. I am polite and friendly and I know I would be a good representative for Downtown Cinemas. From my experience playing on many different sports teams at my school, I know I will get along well with my co-workers, and can always be relied upon to help out when I’m needed. Please call me at my home number, (416) 555-6178, to arrange a time where I can come in and speak with you. My family or voice mail will take a message for me if I am not in. I go to school from Monday to Friday between 9:00 a.m. and 3:45 p.m. but I would be free any other time. Thank you for your consideration.



Mohammed Akil
