How often do you hear these words?  

As a management recruiter, we usually hear the opposite. Restaurant managers send us their resumes, looking for a new position.  When we call to do the initial interview, we always hear what ‘s wrong with their job.

I’ll Call You! How To Get A Recruiter To Call You Back

How many of us have heard these famous last words at the end of a not-so-successful date? They remind me of Charlie Sheen’s character on Two And A Half Men. “I’ll Call You” was Charlie’s escape hatch which allowed him to quickly part company with his lady friends without a big confrontation. It was never genuine. Rather flip and dismissive. Which is why Job Seekers recoil when they hear the same words from a Professional Recruiter: “I’ll Call You.”

I understand the temptation to lump…

Clean it Up: How to Fix Your Online Image

Sometimes our lives become so hectic that we don't think before we make our next move, especially when it comes to the Internet. However, in one swift movement, our online image can be tarnished just by a few posts. What's worse, it takes longer to win back the trust of your followers or even gain the confidence of a recruiter or hiring manger than it does to tear it down.

So, take some time to clean up your online image, even if you believe it's spotless. Here's how to get…

Coming Back With Creative Questions at the End of an Interview

As a recruiter, I am always impressed by candidates who have questions of their own to ask-and I consistently receive feedback from hiring managers all over the country who feel the same way. The candidate who’s asked, “So, do you have any questions?” at the end of the interview better come up with something. One who answers, “No, I don’t think so,” is going to get a big negative mark against them in the hiring decision.

Companies want candidates who have critical thinking skills, as…

Breaking Out of Casual and Into Fine Dining

Here I am, entrepreneur by day and FOH by night. One thing I do have to say is that the service industry is amazing for the reasons of great hours, unique interactions and lots of room for growth. Being a FOH employee from busser to server to bartender has taught me a lot about myself, from how I interact with others to how I handle my own stress. Growth in this business has been wonderful except for the fact that because I started in casual dining, I am stuck with it.

DAWG Talk: Reinvention

 

My kids saw snow for the first time a few weeks ago.  We were visiting Colorado over Spring Break.  We live in Florida, so we can tell you all about humidity, heat, sunshine and afternoon thunderstorms, but snow is foreign.  Like any parent, I want my kids to have as many experiences as I can afford to provide them.  Varied experience builds character and teaches lessons.  So, I scraped together the dough for a Private Ski Instructor to spend time teaching my kids the right way to…
