Get in a Rhythm... Start with companies low on your priority list. This will give you a chance to practice your pitch, Q&A, and thought process. Once you’ve got a good interview rhythm, then it’s time to hit the big leagues.

Waitressing ='s cash money!

I really like the cash I make from waitressing. I've worked at few places but been at the Cheesecake Factory for a while now and like it. Weekends are ALWAYS packed and that's when you make the most. Also you get discounts on food which is great because my daughter loves the peanut butter cup cheesecake we sell. I usually get her a slice a week. I know I am a terrible mom giving my kid sugar, haha.

Cheesecake Factory = Yummy. :)

Tired of being kicked around

I am tired of being seen just as a woman instead of an amazing employee. I work HARD and don't feel appreciated. Anyone else? I really want to work for American Express honestly. I was researching top companies and they won a few awards for supporting working mothers and just women in general. They were listed in the top 100 companies to work for so I definitely plan to apply. I will keep you all posted!

American Express sounds pretty good right about now!

The small stuff matters! Add it to your profile

#profile #profilehelp #resume #resumebuilding #jobsearch

Don’t overlook those mundane little tasks that were part of your previous or current position because they matter, and they can make you stand out and set you apart from other candidates.

But, rather than listing your responsibilities like ingredients on the back of a box, assign meaning to them. Make it personal. Make it you.

The mundane matters! These tasks, called “soft skills,” are…

That is really good advice never looked at it like that before.

So, a couple weeks ago on a busy Saturday night, my bosses brother comes. He’s watching me wait on tables and does not like the way I am doing my job. Typically, I’ll go around to 3 or 4 of my tables and then go to the computer after and put all the orders in at once. It saves a huge amount of time. His brother felt I needed to wait on the customers one by one putting the drinks in the computer as I go. The problem is the way he handled it. He…
