RE: Janitorial Position Application

Dear Mr. Smith:

I am writing to apply for the position of janitor at the UCLA School of Medicine. A long-time employee of yours, Janitorial Supervisor Mark Brandow, advised me to apply for the job. I have worked in repair, construction, and janitorial work since 2007, and due to my experience and certification background I feel I would be great for the position.

As a janitor for Gregory Peck High, I have learned a range of skills including cleaning flooring, carpeting, sanitization, and most basic facilities repairs. Furthermore, I received my HVAC certificate in 2013, making me certified to repair heating, ventilation, and AC systems. I also have experience working construction, specifically in drywall installation. I am further certified as a drywall technician, meaning I am capable of fixing holes and gaps in facilities drywall. I am versed in OSHA guidelines and familiar with state and local safety regulations, and have at various times been responsible for opening and locking up GP High.

Having such a diverse and useful set of skills and work history, I am confident I would be a great addition to the maintenance and janitorial staff at the UCLA School of Medicine. If you are so inclined, I would jump at the opportunity to visit you for an interview. Thank you for your time and consideration of my application. I look forward to hearing back from you at your convenience. Thanks again.

Sincerely,

Sally Jones

3. 5 Tips for Writing Your Janitor Cover Letter

1. Talk about the details: Avoid writing about broad and unclear responsibilities. Rather, make sure you write about exactly what your previous duties were, and any accomplishments you achieved.

2. Write about certifications and skills: As a Janitor, your employer will want to see that you are qualified. Years of experience is great, but perhaps more important is highlighting your certifications or specific skills. This will prove that you have the knowhow to get even the most difficult jobs done.

Instead of using words like “many” or “lots” or “great,” try to use numbers to quantify your achievements.

3. Use numbers everywhere: Instead of using words like “many” or “lots” or “great,” try to use numbers to quantify your achievements. If you were the janitor at a school for 3000 students, write that instead of “a big school.” Having the numbers is always more impressive.

4. Talk about why you’re great: The purpose of an application is to sell yourself, not to simply show what work you’ve done in the past. Think of it like a commercial – you want a hiring manager to “buy” your skills, experience, and work ethic. So make sure instead of writing a boring list, you prove you are the right person for the job.

5. Say what the job posting said: A great way to get noticed is to use some of the same phrases and wording as the original job posting. Try not to force them into the cover letter awkwardly, but these will act as keywords that get a hiring managers attention. For example, if you saw “3+ years of janitorial experience” in the requirements, use that same phrase somewhere in your cover letter.
