Ms. Zainab Abubakar,

The Hiring Manager,

[Company Address].

Dear Ms. Abubakar:

I have always prided myself on great customer service skills. I love assisting people to meet their needs, and I believe that would make me the perfect candidate for the usher position at [Company Name].

In high school and college, I worked as an usher at our local movie theater. I was in charge of seating guests with disabilities who couldn’t find a seat that worked for them, making sure people had their ticket stubs, and getting the theater ready for the next group of movie-goers.

I also had an internship with my university’s live theater department. I worked in the season ticket department and acted as the personal usher for the theater’s patrons. I walked ticket holders to their seats and brought them refreshments as needed.

I feel my experience as well as my patience and interpersonal skills make me the best candidate for the usher position at [Company Name].

I look forward to meeting with you to discuss my qualifications.

Yours sincerely,

[Your Signature]

Dear Hiring Manager:

I would like to take this time to express my interest in the Usher position at [Company Name].

I have been a member of your church for the last three years and I would love the opportunity to represent our congregation to visitors. I have an outgoing personality and I enjoy meeting and talking with others. I can help visitors and members find seating when the pews are full or when the service has already started. I can also assist anyone with special needs to ensure they feel comfortable and have what they need.

I can provide visitors with information about the church, pass out flyers and answer any questions visitors or members may have. I can direct visitors to the rest rooms, nursery and to the right Sunday school classes on Sunday mornings.

I can help with passing the collection plate, pick up contact information cards and hand out hymn books if there are not enough available. I have the time and transportation to arrive early and leave after all members and visitors have left. I can travel when the pastor and singers visit other churches and I am always available for special events.

I understand that proper conduct outside the church is vital to the reputation of the church and its congregation and I always represent the church and its beliefs everywhere I go. I invite others to visit and provide them with information about the church when it is appropriate.

I hope that you will consider me for this position and you can reach me by calling [Phone Number].

Best regards,

[Your Name]
