With what actions do I wow a Hiring manager?
I applied for an assistant manager job and I am very serious about this job. The job description calls for food service experience or the equivalent, I have none of which. However, the job did call for retail experience which I noted I have. I also have a college degree, an awesome reference who could speak very well on my customer service skills. I wrote a cover letter where I showed how flexible I am and how I am willing to work long hours. I highlighted my degree and retail experience and my immediate availability. I pointed out only the positives of why I am the right canidate. How much of an influence do you think having no food/ restaurant experience will hinder my chances? Do you think the positive will outweight the negative? What can I do to show how serious I am without going overboard. I plan to call this company on Tuesday to confirm they recieved my application and resume. What else could I say to gaurentee an interview and hopefully land the job?
