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:
- Going through the motions?
- 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!
