Overview

Is your goal related to advancing in the restaurant, food service, or hotel field? How do you land a job or advance in the restaurant, food service, and hotel fields? And how do you transition into a new field if you have specialized experience in waitressing and food service? This book can help. This valuable book shows how to communicate skills, experience, and potential by showing real resumes that worked for real people. Nearly every resume is accompanied by a companion cover letter, and the book offers readers advice and insights gained by hundreds of job hunters in actual job campaigns.

Experience shown on these resumes include jobs such as Bartender, Waiter, Waitress, Dining Facility Supervisor, Restaurant Manager, Kitchen Manager, Convention Manager, Catering and Banquet Manager, Fast Food Server, Front of the House Manager, and many other jobs. Whether you are seeking work in these areas or attempting to transition restaurant and hotel experience to other industries, this book is essential.

A word of advice from Editor Anne McKinney: "If you want to enter the hospitality industry OR if you want to leave that industry and transition into other areas, you don't need just any resume book. You need an industry-specific resume book! You will love this book targeted specifically to the restaurant, food service, and hotel field. Every resume and cover letter we put in a Real-Resumes Series book has been tested and proven in the real job market. Don't play games with your career. Your choice of a resume book is one of the most important career decisions you will ever make."

Praise for this book and other books in the Real-Resumes Series:
"Distinguished by its highly readable samples." - Library Journal
"These excellent new guides don't just provide the usual coverage on how to write a resume. They provide industry-specific examples, industry-specific tips and cautions, and industry-specific strategies based on real-world resumes. Since many technical types aren't writers, this comes as a special gift; select a winning format, plug in your background specs, and away you go. It's that easy--with Real-Resumes in hand."-- The Midwest Book Review
"Part of an excellent real-resume series. Impressive, with sophisticated, persuasive, and nuanced guidance." -The Book Reader
