Aug 2006 - May 2008
I worked two years for a private city club in Tampa.The club had banquets, a bar, and an ala carte fine dining room. I regularly worked all three areas. I was trained in the points of service, where to serve and clear from, how to properly set a table for service, and going above and beyond to ensure the happiness of my guests.I also worked in the bar frequently. The atmosphere was much more relaxed, I served cocktails and helped bar back. Saturdays I worked as a banquet server for weddings and other events. Casual or fine dining I can do both equally well.Customer service was the most important aspect of the job.

I am currently pursuing an education in cosmetology. For two months I had in-class traing and practical applications with mannequin heads. I was taught hair, skin, and nail services. The Salon Professional Academy teaches cosmetology, but also teaches a business principle called the Krs System. This system is focused on customer service and keeping your schedule full through rebooking with guests,selling retail, offering add-on services, Networking and offering your guests incentives to send new guests to you. After basic training I started performing services on guests in the salon area. I have not only learned cosmetology but vastly improved my customer service skills. Keeping my guest happy ensures the success of my business. Once a week students are assigned to a front desk shift and a sanitation shift.On front desk I schedule appointments, answer the telephone, check out guests, and make confirmation calls. The sanitation shift includes laundry duties and and keeping the dispensary clean. After I complete 1800 hours I will graduate and take the state board cosmetology exam.
