Behavior That Can Cost Managers Their Jobs

This post was originally written by FohBoh member Robert Krzak. You can visit his profile here.

One of the most frustrating aspects of working in any corporation is being stepped over for a promotion. Another example would be the manager who solves problems, reduces turn over, increases revenue, brings the restaurant out of the dark ages, and then is fired despite their efforts.

1. A Poor Behavior…

How The Interviewer Tests Your Behavior and Personality

This post was originally written by FohBoh member Robert Krzak. You can visit his profile here.

Many Job Seekers are surprised to find that a job interview is similar to being profiled. The interviewer may be less interested in your experience, and more interested in your behavior, and what your personality type is. They may overlook areas where your education and experience are lacking.

Can You Pass an Interviewer’s Interrogation?

Many management candidates fail to land jobs because they are afraid of telling the truth. There…

Skills and Abilities Questions Interviewers ask Restaurant Managers

This post was originally written by FohBoh member Robert Krzak. You can visit his profile here.

There is more to these questions than just wanting to know if a Candidate is skilled enough to hold a job at a particular restaurant. Think of a job interview as if it were a game of chess. Each move determines the next set of questions. The outcome depends on whether the interviewer puts the Candidate in check, or…

Interviewing Secrets: Strong vs. Weak Management Candidates

This post was originally written by FohBoh member Robert Krzak. You can visit his profile here.

Weak candidates may have difficulty articulating their experiences and what they learned. Weaker candidates are satisfied with their ability to make it through the day without inciting chaos. A strong candidate will analize the situation and can give examples of how they used their new found skills.

DAWG Talk: Making Matches Happen

I walked into my daughter’s bedroom last week. On the floor, she had 4 piles of Thistle Blocks. The type of blocks, quite honestly, is irrelevant. But, for those who are interested, they are plastic colored soft blocks with bristles that interlock to form a connection.



Anyhow, on the floor were 4 piles of these Thistle blocks – red, yellow, blue and black. Being the cool dad that I am, I quickly sat down on the floor, grabbed several blocks and put them together. I figured this would… Continue

DAWG Talk: Lessons from the Dog - One Candidate's Perspective

(Guest post by Kimberly)



I’m a Greek Mathematician. Actually, I’m not, but today I did have a “eureka” moment.



Having been in the real-world (whatever that means) work force for 15 years, I’m confident in my skills and abilities and that I’m the best at what I do. I’ve consistently been gainfully employed during these 15 years and have worked for a total of three companies in this time span, earning awards and exceeding expectations at each of them. What was my experience… Continue

What do you want to be when you grow up?

I think the story goes that President-Elect Barack Obama stated he wanted to be the leader of the United States when he was five. (His former Democratic Party opponent, Sen. Hillary Clinton, would have you believe that this meant he was ‘ambitious,’ but that’s a topic for another time.) When I was five, I wanted to be a cashier because ‘I like money.’ I'm not kidding. My mom still has the picture that I drew of myself at a cashier stand along with the description I wrote.

Job jitters

If you have a case of the job jitters, you are not alone. Last week the unemployment rate in the United States hit a 5-year high, 6.1 percent. This, in addition to all the other news out there, isn't comforting.



However, if you work in the restaurant industry, it's a different story. According to the MSN Careers Web site, leisure and hospitality workers are some of the most wanted today:

When I made the decision to change careers I knew what I wanted to do and who I wanted to work for. Feeling the urge to do the responsible thing, I decided I should at least look at what else was out there.

TED TALKS VIDEO

TED: James Patten: The best computer interface? Maybe ... your hands - James Patten (2013)

"The computer is an incredibly powerful means of creative expression," says designer and TED Fellow James Patten. But right now, we interact with computers, mainly, by typing and tapping. In this nifty talk and demo, Patten imagines a more visceral, physical way to bring your thoughts and ideas to life in the digital world, taking the computer interface off the screen and putting it into your hands.

TED: Hamish Jolly: A shark-deterrent wetsuit (and it's not what you think) - Hamish Jolly (2013)

Hamish Jolly, an ocean swimmer in Australia, wanted a wetsuit that would deter a curious shark from mistaking him for a potential source of nourishment. (Which, statistically, is rare, but certainly a fate worth avoiding.) Working with a team of scientists, he and his friends came up with a fresh approach — not a shark cage, not a suit of chain-mail, but a sleek suit that taps our growing understanding of shark vision.

TED: Michel Laberge: How synchronized hammer strikes could generate nuclear fusion - Michel Laberge (2014)

Our energy future depends on nuclear fusion, says Michel Laberge. The plasma physicist runs a small company with a big idea for a new type of nuclear reactor that could produce clean, cheap energy. His secret recipe? High speeds, scorching temperatures and crushing pressure. In this hopeful talk, he explains how nuclear fusion might be just around the corner.

TED: Sarah Lewis: Embrace the near win - Sarah Lewis (2014)

At her first museum job, art historian Sarah Lewis noticed something important about an artist she was studying: Not every artwork was a total masterpiece. She asks us to consider the role of the almost-failure, the near win, in our own lives. In our pursuit of success and mastery, is it actually our near wins that push us forward?
