Submitting A Resume – DIY

November 17th, 2005 · No Comments · Job Search, Restaurant/Hospitality Resumes

Want to start off on the right foot when applying for a new restaurant management, chef, or ??? position?

Then DO NOT have your spouse, girl/boyfriend, significant other, or whomever submit your resume or call about job opportunities for you. Do it yourself!

A resume that comes in with a cover letter saying,
    “My spouse is interested in your job. Here is his/her resume.“;

or a call that starts out,
    “Hi! My friend is interested in the job you posted online. He wants to know more, what can you tell me about it?“;

does not make for a good first impression.

Situations like the above tend to leave a recruiter wondering whether the jobseeker is:

  • Henpecked?
  • Lazy?
  • Going through the motions?
  • Controlling?
  • Or ???

Make the time to submit your resumes personally.

One of your primary goals in a job search is to always make a good first, middle, and last impression!
