I am very confident in the work performance that I have consistently provided to the companies and employers with whom I’ve had the opportunity of working and growing. Throughout my previous 7+ years of employment in the dining industry

(and more recently, nearly 2 years specializing in bartending and making craft cocktails) I have acquired unparalleled communication skills. Though I am entirely certain that I possess the necessary abilities and optimistic attitude to work well with absolutely any staff and clientele, I sincerely believe that there is always space to improve, reflect, and most importantly, LEARN. I would like to build on these skills of mine through new and valuable experiences with your establishment.
