how can i find a position as a cocktail waitress in manhattan?

Posted under Resume tips for Women by Marcus Pottea on January 31st, 2013 8:38 pm

looking at craigslist shows some but they all want people with experience. I just want to work at a club, does anyone know of any places hiring now? or places they particularly like?

or how i can find out who’s hiring?

or tips on what to put in my resume?

or what to wear?

or say?

Please be very cautious with jobs from online job sites such as craigslist as there was a frightening occurrence when a young woman applying for a ‘nanny’ position from the site was tragically found dead in her car trunk. A 19 year old male was arrested in connection.

Perhaps a chain restaurant such as applebees would allow an applicant with minimum experience waitressing. How about looking up their website and finding out about possible job vacancies. The sunday classified ads may also have openings.

On one’s resume, they say to never put actual references but instead at the bottom of the page, type that "References available upon request", never put salary requirements on a resume or cover letter unless requested and even so, best to put ‘salary is negotiable’ as to not overbid or underbid; best to dress appropriately to fill out a job application and/or drop off resume (always with cover letter as that briefly expands on the resume) which includes no open-toe shoes, no half/midriff tops, no short skirts, no jeans, no sneakers, no short sleeves (can wear cardigan or such), no heavy perfume or make-up resume tips for women

Examples of resumes may be found at http://hotjobs.yahoo.com/resume but also can be found in books at the local library or bookstore in the ‘career/job search section’ or such.
