  • Familiar with collecting the request from the bartender, adding appropriate garnish, placing it on a tray, and serving to guests with cocktail napkins.
  • Knowledge of point of sales system.

Through my part-time work at community services and charity events, I developed a good work ethic, strong expertise in interacting with people of different backgrounds, and the ability to work efficiently in a fast-paced environment.
