Finding that Next Job

How to Get a Restaurant Job

Waitress_071025090038188_wideweb__300x357Like a lot of folks out there, I put in my time in the trenches of the restaurant business.  While I have no desire to relive those days, I’m grateful that the jobs I had gave me a chance to pay my bills, not starve and make some great friends along the way.  I also learned a lot about how to relate to people and more importantly, how to sell to them.

On Episode 11 of Job Search Radio on the Small Plate Radio Network, Kyle O’Brien interviews Dianne Hosford, principal at Portland, OR’s Two Lucy’s View.  Dianne gives great tips on how to find a restaurant job and the qualities you’ll need to be successful in that industry.

The restaurant business can be a great way to make some quick cash while you’re looking for a more permanent position and it also makes a great second job for entry level workers doing the 9 to 5 thing.  Good luck and don’t be afraid to sling that hash.
