The Big 5 Personality Traits: how you can deal with them!

I'll start off by saying I love Jordan Peterson, who is the speaker in the video I've shared below. He's a Canadien psychologist who gained a lot of widespread attention for his views on cultural and political issues. In the video, Peterson goes over the Big 5 Personality Traits and the types of careers that would be beneficial to each. I see a lot of posts in our community wanting guidance on new career paths, so I'd suggest taking the test first and really utilizing the results to lead you in the right direction!

If you're on the lookout for a new side gig/hustle or a way to make some extra cash, it may be a good idea to check out your state or city's local Department of Revenue. Every tax season, there is a need for additional people to help with taxes. Usually these jobs are part-time and are flexible. Check it out and you may be able to make some money during this 1st fiscal quarter.

The restaurant is one of the places where you may get bad-ass soft skills, customer service, and not freak out during rush hours. It is a fun place to work, and lots of laughs while you work. A fast-paced and fun place to work. πŸ‘©πŸ½πŸ‘¨πŸ»β€πŸ¦±πŸ§‘πŸΌβ€πŸ³πŸ½οΈπŸ·πŸ™‹πŸ½β€β™€οΈπŸ’ΈπŸ΄

Sometimes, we all come to the point forced to make a move in careers to something outside of the restaurant industry. Working in the restaurant industry long time taught us there are many good skills that we may use in a different industry. πŸ˜“πŸ“ŒπŸ—’οΈ

Focus on the transferable skills you learned while working in a restaurant. πŸ§‘πŸΌβ€πŸ³πŸ·πŸ½οΈπŸ’΅

  • Works well under pressure
  • Conflict resolution
  • Team player
  • Able to multitask
  • Strong customer service
  • Ability to communicate with others
  • Handling money and finances

When searching for new opportunities, look for jobs, in which you can use these skills to your advantage. πŸ™‹πŸ½β€β™€οΈπŸ½οΈπŸ’΅πŸ½οΈ

Distributor

Think about all the distributors you deal with daily. Food, beer, wine, paper and sanitation, linens, etc. πŸ‘©πŸ½πŸ‘¨πŸ»β€πŸ¦±πŸ’΅

Event planner

Many restaurants and corporations employ event planners to coordinate conferences, weddings, charity events, trade shows, business meetings, sales events, and more. πŸ‘©πŸ½πŸ‘¨πŸ»β€πŸ¦±πŸ’΅

Sales representative

The most successful sales reps are those who have great communication skills. They are good listeners who can understand the customers’ issues even when those customers have a hard time articulating their needs. πŸ‘©πŸ½πŸ‘¨πŸ»β€πŸ¦±πŸ’΅

Flight attendant

This one may be out of the question if you are looking for fewer hours or a more stable schedule. πŸ‘©πŸ½πŸ‘¨πŸ»β€πŸ¦±πŸ’΅ ✈️

What skills would you transfer your restaurant skills outside of the industry? Please, share your experience in a comment.

I’ve transitioned to a customer support role at a non profit organization at a University. It’s a huge dream of mine to break into student services, because the main things I took from my service industry experience is my desire to help others.

As a member of both #Jobcase & #AbledWorkersUnite, I am enjoying the communities here. However, I don't just have a job, nor am I abhorrent to sharing things of my hobbies and skills with those like me with similar interests: I'm also a plastic model builder, amature artist, aspiring writer, and hopeful photographer. As of yet, I don't know if or where I am allowed to share my experiences in these hobby fields that could inspire others into using them for a career, or the same for others. Am I too optimistic about wanting to share these in a sub-community, or could I be allowed to create one myself? #wordsofadvice Please...?

Keep moving forward

You did not receive a letter βœ‰οΈ of acceptance, promotion,deal. It's frustrating because you work so hard Right?

But theirs light at the end of the tunnel.

✴️Sometimes moving forward requires moving different companies.

✴️ Sometimes moving forward requires a different approach with your current company.

Quote from Martin Luther King Jr.

"If you can't fly then run,

"If you can't run then walk,

"If you can't walk then crawl,

"But whatever you do you have to keep moving forward"

Hello, Jobcase community! πŸ‘©πŸ½πŸ‘¨πŸ»β€πŸ¦±πŸ™‹πŸ½β€β™€οΈπŸ‘©πŸ»β€πŸŽ“

I'm sharing the answer to this question with a video. πŸŽ₯ I always see YouTube as a visual library. You may learn lots of things and tips if you search for them.

I'm sharing one of my favorite restaurant YouTubers, who makes a lot of good videos about being a good restaurant server. πŸ‘©πŸ»β€πŸ³πŸ§‘πŸΌβ€πŸ³πŸ½οΈ

I always learn better when I watch a video. πŸŽ₯

Please, share your opinion after watching the video. πŸ‘©πŸ½πŸ‘¨πŸ»β€πŸ¦± Did the video encourage you to apply for a restaurant job without experience?

All jobs should have employees who are honest and reliable. They should also have employees who have good integrity and make others feel comfortable. I’ve worked a few jobs where I was literally bullied by my mangers and coworkers and that’s not a healthy environment to be in. I think we should have employers and employees who all respect each other and create an environment comfortable for everyone. I know jobs are just jobs we work but we should feel comfortable going to work each day and not feel harassed by those around us. #motivation #wordsofadvice

How many of these sales tips do YOU follow?

I just came back from the mall and encountered a number of salespeople. Some were Retail Superstars, and others could use a few pointers... I saw some mistakes I had made in the past, and some moves I know I practice! I found this video that caught each mistake:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_ZkEWXAo8tk

How many of these tips do you follow? Any ones you would add from experience? Whether you're on commission, or just want to move product, I'm curious to hear. Mention in the comments!

Maintain high standards of: work ethics practice, communication and respect within the workplace including workplace culture, and dependability for yourself no matter where you go - do not stay where those standards aren’t met or where management isn’t open to having a conversation about them if they aren’t.

Know your worth, stay humble yet confident, and find joy throughout each day. #jobsearch #wordsofadvice #standards #workethic #respect #showup
