Dear Sodexo:
Thank you for reviewing my resume and considering my qualifications; although they were defined as "notable", quite simply I am perplexed having worked temporary assignments at a few of your accounts and with the caliber of management, and if perhaps they meet company standards, then I am a definite fit for your company.
