Re: Janitor - Advertised on Monster

Dear Mr. Freeman:

I am writing to apply for the janitor opening posted on Monster. The job description is in line with my skills and abilities, and my résumé is enclosed for your review.

Currently, I manage housecleaning tasks for a residential cleaning services company, where I:

  • Clean homes ranging in size from 1,000 to 5,000+ sq. ft.
  • Deep clean houses, apartments and townhouses
  • Clean specialty areas such as tile grout steam cleaning, rug/upholstery shampooing, window cleaning, deck pressure washing and wood floor waxing and polishing

My attention to detail, efficiency and pride in doing the job right have garnered praise from customers and supervisors, and I am often requested by name for repeat engagements at client homes.

Many people would balk over janitorial services as a career choice, but I enjoy my work and am delighted when I exceed my clients’ expectations.

I am seeking to transition from residential to commercial cleaning and would like to join your janitorial services team. I am hardworking, friendly and really know how to clean. You can reach me at (555) 555-5555 to schedule an interview.

I look forward to your response.
