Waitress Resume TemplatesWhen someone is talking about waiting in a select bar or in a restaurant, he or she is usually talking about serving foods and drinks, as if being a waitress is anything like being a clerk or retail salesman. And that is not correct. Being a waitress does not mean just serving drinks and foods to clients. The more general role of a waitress is to pay close attention to every detail, in order to serve as satisfyingly as possible as any proper client deserves to be served.
A waitress must look as clean as if she just bought herself a new tailor made costume. Therefore, she must act accordingly, by keeping a genuine smile on her face and moving around and through the tables with the grace of a gazelle.
As a conclusion, I might say that being a waitress is not a job just for anyone. Instead, being a waitress is a job for those really wanting to be waitresses. Being a waitress is a job for those that like serving people and who can always keep a smile on their face, even if they have troubles in their personal lives. More than this, being a waitress is like fulfilling a deep, inner calling. Nobody can wait unless with a smile on her face, knowing that waiting is like closing a circle.
Down below you will find a waitress resume template. As you know, being a waitress implies communication and analytic skills. However, these are just some general characteristics that an employer will look for in a future employee. And, even more, these characteristics must result from the entire waitress resume, therefore they should not be just stated, as if one is making an enumeration.
Besides these general characteristics, a waitress's resume must also include some more particular characteristics or abilities, such as the ability to teach new employee's the trade, or the ability make a client feel like he or she is welcomed (by being spiritual, by paying careful attention to his or her needs and so on and so forth).
Therefore, while being a waitress might sound like a monotonous and exhausting job, it can also prove to be very fulfilling. Being nice and full of life is a very important thing in this world. Being able to feel what someone needs is also an important characteristic. These three things are especially important because they can keep us and everyone else from feeling lonely and they can bring us together. Being a waitress is an important state of mind which can be transmitted to everybody else; so, one of the waitress's duties is to make everybody else in the restaurant feel like home, away from home.
