					Tips On Landing Temporary Hospitality Jobs

Temporary hospitality jobs are just as widespread and in demand as those
with regular positions. In fact, this industry is considered to be the
biggest source of temporary positions. This may have something to do with
the nature of the job.

Why Temporary?

If you’re thinking how come temporary positions are rampant in this kind
of industry, even though a lot of sources say that hospitality industry
is a staple to any kind of culture, there are a couple of factors that
can answer your question.

First off would be the nature of the job itself. It really depends on the
position of the job whether it is susceptible to being temporary or not.
There are jobs that fall under the maintenance category of hospitality in
which you do not really have to work everyday. They just call you if you
have work to do, or you have a scheduled time of the month in which those
are the only times that you need to report to them.

Second would be the season. There are times of the year that entails more
working force in the service industry. For instance, Christmas holidays
and other long vacations usually call for extra people. Big events also
take in temporary services. Companies would usually hire an extra number
of people just for a big event that they would be holding. This is one
way that you get to have a temporary position.

So, here are some tips that you can take in mind when applying for a
temporary position.

Keep It Short

If you’ll be applying for a temporary position, there is no need for you
to make a thesis-length resume. It is best that you simply keep it short
and simple. Just put in all the essentials that they need to know. Only
put information that are related to the position you are applying for.
For instance, if you’ll be applying for a waitress service position,
there is no need to put in your resume that you won the 7th grade story
telling contest.

Just place information which you think could help the employer see your
qualifications for the position. Avoid the fluff.

Dress It Up—Right!

If you’ll be having an interview for a temporary position, preparations
are still to be made. Don’t underestimate the interview, just because
it’s for a temporary post. Dress up right and appropriate for the
interview. Try to find something that would fit just right. Don’t under
dress and most of all, don’t over dress.
If you’ll be using cologne, try to keep in mind that it is best to use a
mild one. This is so that you won’t irritate the one interviewing you and
you can avoid allergic reactions in consideration of people around you.

Be On Time And Early!

If the company you’re applying for is new to you, it would be best that
you visit their office one day before your interview. This is so that you
wouldn’t get lost on the day of your interview. Thus, you wouldn’t be
late. It is best that you arrive at least 10 minutes earlier than your
scheduled interview.

So, do all your preparations the night before and get a good night’s
sleep; in this way, you wake up early and have more time to prepare on
the day itself.
