Question by Buffarini: How can i get a job in Retail if i worked in the restaurant industry my whole life?
Im 19 (college) live in nj and only have restaurant experience (busser,runner) i want to get into retail (sales associate, ect)

It seems as though if you apply for ANY retail place they look for experience. How can i start this experience if not giving a chance?

    Don’t just fill out an application. TALK to hiring managers and sell yourself. You have to be able to sell yourself in retail so they will look for confidence, outgoing attitude, good grooming, etc. Show them how your restaurant experience actually translates to retail. “A lot of people overlook the fact that my restaurant experience can help me in retail….blah blah blah…. dealing with unhappy customers, selling add-on items from the menu, blah blah blah. If you can sell yourself, you’re a shoe-in for retail where customers will be buying you before they buy the merchandise!

    I too, am a former Rest. industry worker. SELL yourself. You have to in that realm? Why not retail. You have to handle cash. Same in retail. You have to be “ON THE FLOOR” at the very beginning of your shift, to the very end of your shift. So in Retail. Standing on your feet. So in retail.. What is the difference? What you are selling, and wearing, and not having to carry big heavy trays anymore! (Benefits too!)
