New Trend in Restaurant Career Advancement – Engage

New trends in restaurant career advancement encourage the job seeker to be pro-active and engage. In order to have a successful restaurant career, a job seeker should take notice of the following helpful tips.

1. Maintain an upbeat, positive attitude.

It all starts from having a positive attitude. Success is mostly energy. Experts say that people who maintain a high level of positivity, easily attracts success. This is not only applicable for a restaurant career. It applies to all job seeker professions. Like they say, “You are what you think.”

2. Find a mentor.

It’s always possible to learn something more. A mentor can be physical---your boss, an expert, a colleague or a strong character you haven’t actually met, but have read about in books. It doesn’t really make much difference as long as it’s possible to learn from them. A job seeker has to be on the look-out for prospective mentor.

3. Become technologically proficient.

One secret about how to get hired quickly is to keep up with the modern times. Every year, new kinds of technology are being launched. The best way to have a successful restaurant career is to know all about the new tools and gadgets available. Not everyone has the patience to do this. Because of this, people who are in the know are considered invaluable.

4. Contribute to the company’s bottom line.

Be a cash-cow. Job seekers are advised to not just be too focused on how to get hired. What’s more important is to stay focused on what one can do once hired. People who contribute to the company’s bottom line because of their ingenuity are hard to let go.

5. Proactively seek new assignments and challenges.

One piece of advice any job seeker should treat as gold dust: once hired, never settle. Always be on the move and on the look out for new things to learn and challenges to surpass. This makes someone very good and creates more chances of having a successful and lifelong restaurant career.

6. Cultivate relationships with people in power.

Power radiates. A tip on how to get hired is to radiate an aura of power. By being with powerful people, one can easily learn the tricks of the trade. Experts also say that once a person is associated with powerful people, others easily assume that he is powerful as well.

7. Become the top producer.

Regardless of the yardstick---be it hours or quota, one can always benefit from being the top producer. Don’t bother being second best. All eyes are on the best anyway. Second placers always stay behind the shadow, so job seekers are advised to aim for the top spot.

8. Polish your interpersonal skills.

No man is an island. One great tip on how to get hired is to know how to get along with people smoothly.

9. Deliver a consistently high-level work product.

A restaurant career can be made to last if one places high regard on the quality of his output. One should not let the quality wane.

10. Perfect your writing skills.

Great writing skills will take you far. A job seeker has to write an impressive resume and sell himself right on. There are a lot of highly skilled people out there but they fail to communicate themselves when it comes to the letter.

There are so many tips on how to get hired and have a successful restaurant career. But experts agree that these ten sum them up.

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.
