The profile of an executive housekeeper involves a lot of efforts and hard work. They have to be well organized and should also possess leadership skills for the smooth working of the job. Previous work experience as a housekeeper proves as a stepping stone to their career as they become completely aware of minute intricacies and the demands of the job. With a housekeeping experience they are able to guide the other workers about the details of the job and how to effectively perform the tasks involved in the job.
An executive housekeeper has to plan, coordinate, manage, and organize everything in the housekeeping department. They need to keep a track of the cleaning supplies and equipments and order the supplies on a regular basis. Apart from this they also need to do a random supervision of all the rooms to check if they are well kept in an orderly manner. Experience is this department is very essential. A cover letter should reflect all these qualities of an executive housekeeper. The letter should briefly define the qualities of the candidate and what they can bring to the hospital or hotel after taking the position.
