There are many ways to find a job in Hospitality – you can:
- Drop in and talk to the manager of the venue – be well prepared, look smart and be engaged with the Manager – Managers are looking for people that can represent the venue to customers. Maybe you get a trial shift right then and there – be ready.
- Look on jobsites, use Seek and Gumtree as well as others, and don’t forget Facebook and Instagram.
- Get trained (non-accredited or accredited, through VET or TasTAFE or private training organisations or employment agencies) and get some work experience – venue operators are always looking for the right people – a work experience where you shine may be what gets you the job.
- Look closely at School Based Apprenticeships – they are a great way to get into the industry and complete your TCE, year 12 and be on the way to being qualified at the same time – earn while you learn.
- Make sure anyone you know in the industry is aware of your interest – word of mouth and networks are a great employee feed for venues.
