Dear Ms. Clemente:

I am writing to you this letter regarding the application of Francine Torres. I have known her personally for 11 years and through those years, she’s always been an organized person.

Francine is very responsible and many people speak good about her as an individual. I believe that her skills and experience make her an excellent candidate for Front Desk Receptionist of Loyal Hotel.

I met Francine during her on-the-job training days. She is proactive in greeting the people entering the building, gentle in answering any questions, and very clear in providing directions to guests. She is also very alert in dealing with guest’s needs and always friendly to customers and to all people she meets.

She also makes sure that the reception area is clean and free of clutter. She is also very efficient in accepting deliveries and mail and organizes them to be distributed to the correct recipients. This is also the same when she manages outgoing mail and packages for pickup.

I believe that her dedication, passion, and organization make her an asset to any organization.

If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact me by phone at 0918-567-554 or email me at [email protected].
