I'm applying to a slightly high end restaurant that is just opening up, any advice?
I have experience in the hospitality industry, and I'm also going to school for Hotel & Restaurant management, but I don't have any serving experience. This restaurant just started hiring so I'm gonna go in tomorrow and apply. Any advice or tips would be appreciated. I don't have a resume but I'm hoping for the best, thanks in advance for the advice!

Look really good. Not too much makeup. Be nice; sit up straight; smile. And be sure to ask 1 or 2 questions at the interview. Be honest with them. Good luck.

I would try to do a resume before going to attach to your application. Don't downplay your education or any experience you DO have. Include things like "people person", "punctual", "detail oriented"....and dress nice, not too much make-up or jewelry....be a clean slate. Good luck:)

Ditto the good resume advice, but try to be neatly dressed and well presented. A pleasant tone of voice and a good smile will go a long way even if it just to hand over your written application.
