Working as a hostess has allowed me to meet many different kinds of individuals. One must have a certain sense of focus and positivity when holding the position as a Hostess. I enjoy when it gets busy in the restaurant because it challenges me to work at a pace that always keeps me on my feet. My warm and friendly personality is displayed within the means of this occupation seeing as I am required to greet people at the door with a smile on my face. I am currently training to be a waitress, I love talking to people and hearing what exactly they have to say. Holding a position in a restaurant, whether it be a Hostess or a Waitress, is a great preparation for any field of business that has to do with personal interaction with an individual. I have met some of the most interesting people by striking up a simple conversation. Through working at Hard Times Cafe, I have learned to build upon my social skills and I have also learned how innate it is for me to strike up a conversation with a random person, this gift of freely conversing will help me to fill in the gaps with individuals when I become a therapist.
