Are jobs in this industry on the rise? Are there any sub-sectors that are growing?

Where are the jobs? Which places have the most food server opportunities?

I'm a hot chick with a good following of Clientele. I also have a Bachelors Degree in Business Administration. I just turned 40 years old and it's not my first rodeo! Please send me any avaialble jobs. I need to work Yesterday!!!!!!!!

Im with you there Tiffany 43 years old, been in vegas 2 years and the casinos wont touch me cant even get a interview my only guess is their looking only at the young teenie boppers i even saw a ad saying looks and personality more important than experience... so what chance do i have even though i have been waiting tables since i was a 16 year old car-hop where is the justice, and what ever happend to companies wanting quality customer service i guess it just doesnt matter to the big corporations any more!!!

I hear everyone on the issue of not being hired at restuarants as of late. I to have many years of experience in the buisness. It seems more and more customer service is not important. Its what u can sell. And with the way this society is going unless u can offer more than just whats on the menu, u might as well hang it up. This is becoming a very degrading buisness for women and we have no one to blame but this type of female,that would belittle herself for the ole mighty dollar. Its time to use our morals and work ethics we were thought from our good families, and find other work. Things are only going to get worse with the declining economy. sad just sad.
