WILLIS LOUGHEAD FROM COCONUT IN THE RITZ-CARLTON, MIAMI
Interview Tip: Have a meal
where you would like to work before applying. It is
very impressive to read a cover letter that begins,
"After dining with you on Saturday...."
As well as giving a good impression during your initial
interview. Find the Hotel or restaurant early, there
is no excuse for being late for an interview and parking
is sometimes a problem.
Questions: "What dish that you cooked
at home was a success and what dish was a failure?"
"How have you recently resolved a problem?"

Interview Tip: Once
a "face-to-face" is granted it is very important
that an applicant be prompt, (this means a little early

earnest on wanting the job. It is no great joy to go
through the interviewing process but it is a necessary
one. A person seeking a position would be wise to have
their resume with them in an unmarked folder or envelope
just to help in case there is more than one chef interviewing
Question: Who are you inspired by, mentored
by etc. (If the answer is nothing or no one the interview

me something special - whether it's putting your resume
in an attractive envelope or dressing up for the interview.
Question: Does it make you happy to make other
Does it satisfy something within you?
