Tips for Landing a Job in a Restaurant

Restaurant Job TipsWhether you end up working in a fast food joint or in a five star restaurant, the food services industry is all about serving customers food to eat, drinks to enjoy and a comfortable, inviting atmosphere that encourages them to return. All of those duties fall upon the employees of that particular restaurant and that could mean you! If you’re going to starting applying for jobs in the restaurant sector, what should you keep in mind if you want to maximize your odds of success and actually get and give something worthwhile out of your time?

Look for Restaurant Jobs in Professional Places

Sure you can find ‘worker wanted’ signs in Craigslist, but if you’re looking for jobs through more professional and specialized areas, then it shows that you are actually serious about your career prospects. Furthermore, it’s easier to get a job when you’ve already talked a little with someone in the industry through something like LinkedIn or if you’ve been given a heads up through a job posting site that actually specializes in restaurants before the posts hit the wider world.

Think of it another way. Saying that you found the job post through something like culintro.com is going to look like you are more serious about working in the food industry than saying you found it through Craig’s List where you probably stumbled on it accidentally and thought ‘why not?’, at least from the point of view of the recruiter. Build up your resources for job hunting and use them!

Proper Presentation

In the restaurant industry, presentation will always be important. Polite, friendly, efficient, clean servers, greeters and bartenders will always do better than rude sloppy ones! So start your proper presentation habits while you’re job hunting:

  • Have a fully updated resume that is catered to the positions for which you are applying. Highlight things like your experience in customer service, your organizational and punctual skills, your social nature and your willingness to do things like stay on your feet for hours and lift things.
  • Have a clean cover letter that is custom written for the place you are applying. Make sure to find out the name of the person who will be in charge of hiring and direct the letter to that person. Highlight specifically why you would be a good fit for that business.
  • Dress professionally for your interview. There really is no such thing as too professional since you can always take something off. Too casual on the other hand is something that is impossible to recover from.
  • Be genuinely yourself in the interview. This is because the interviewer will not only be looking at your credentials, but will also choose people who will gel well with others on the team and with the restaurant as a whole. No one can know how you’ll gel if you don’t act like yourself-obviously your best self-but still yourself. Be true to who you are and let your best traits shine through. Sure you might not always get the job offer, but if you’re honest about who you are, your goals and your qualifications, the job offers you do get will likely be a better fit.

These same tips go for whether you are applying to work at McDonald’s or a five star restaurant. The better you present yourself and the more you showcase how well you’d fit in the company, the better your odds will be of success!

The Food Services industry is expected to keep growing in 2020 and many people will end up working in this field in one way or another at one time or another. If you’re moving into the food industries-even if it’s only for a short while-it’s important to make sure you’ll fit wherever you apply and then make sure you get the most out of it. Restaurant jobs can impart many skills including communication, handling money, customer service skills, organization and being physically fit. Just make sure not to eat too much of the company food-particularly in fast food-or you may lose some of your good health! Good luck finding a new job for the new year.
