ATTN: HR Department of Worldwide Travel Ltd.
Dear Sirs, Madams,
I am writing this letter to express my strong motivation for a tour operator position within your company. Since I hold degree in tourism and an experience in working for a major travel agency in Greece, I believe I have a substantial knowledge of the sector.
I would appreciate the opportunity to gain experience in a English speaking environment, and to get insight in the operations of a Tour Operator in England and furthermore to improve my English language skills.
My professional experience in a tour operator is in the following areas:
Telephone sales of travel packages
Sales of flight tickets
Conference tourism and organization of big corporate events
My ultimate goals are to learn how the business sells its product to its customers, how many services it offers for each product, what kind of hotels they work with, what the market target is, what the best strategy to decide a suitable price is, etc.
I would like to point out that I am not looking for a specific department in your company; however, the marketing and sales department would be the most interesting for me.
Thank you very much in advance for your help.
I look forward to hearing from you.
