your best bet is to relax. Show enthusiasm for learning the position. just two things. If you have experience emphasize that. If not show your willingness. It's really simple actually. If you don't get the interview try again. Persistence says you care. Make sure it's persistence and not annoyance though.

Hello friends,

When applying for jobs in the food service industry, it's important to showcase your customer service skills, work ethic and personality. To prepare for the interview, prospective employees should spend time familiarizing themselves with the business, practicing answers to common interview questions and fine-tuning their resume to highlight their restaurant skills and experience.

Learn About the Restaurant

In order to be a competent and competitive candidate for a restaurant position, you must take the time to understand the restaurant to which you are applying. If you are unfamiliar with their cuisine, menu or business practices, schedule a time during off-peak hours to visit the establishment before you apply. Observe how employees interact with customers, the quality of service and most importantly, the food. Going into the interview with a basic knowledge of what the restaurant offers and expects of its employees offers a leg up against the competition.

Update the Resume

Before the interview, update your resume to include all experience that relates directly to the job. Highlight your experience with customer service, even if you have never worked in the restaurant industry. Your resume is a prime opportunity to showcase your relevant background and also give more information about your education and interests.

Thanks and Regards
Milton James
