Dear Mr. Smith,
I have worked as a public school custodian since I received an honorable discharge from the army in 2005. The army taught me that any task assigned must be done to the best of my abilities. I have always strived to do that with every task. I take much pride in my work, and no matter what "mess" I may encounter, it gets properly taken care of, all with a smile on my face.
I saw your custodian ad in the newspaper, so I wanted to apply for it because I believe your new private school could benefit from my cleaning abilities. I can help make your fine school stay looking new for a long time. I can sweep, mop, buff, shine, disinfect, manage garbage, scrub walls; basically any janitorial job that needs to be done. As well, I am a very handy person and will do repairs if needed.
I am reliable, friendly, and a hard worker. I will be there every school day morning ready to start working. I think you will love my attitude and drive to be my best. My special cleaning techniques have been recommended by my employer, and they have given me a written reference that I have attached to this application.
I hope you call me for an interview and a tour of your new school. I think you will like what I can do to keep your school maintained to proper standards.
