Default Resume for hookah bar?

Hello world of HookahPro!
I was wondering if anyone have ever made a resume for a hookah bar? Im not totally sure what to write on it so I came here for some help . Anyone got any tips? What Im thinking so far is to put my knowledge and experience of hookahs, shishas, etc. but im pretty stumped as to what else. It also doubles as a nightclub alongside with a VIP Hookah section which is opened up on thursdays and sundays to everyone.

well first off i dont know you that well and how much you know about hookah.

But if i was doing it this would be my resume in a bullet form
-Smoking hookah for 3 years
-I have owned and cared for my own personal hookahs for 3 years
-I smoke brands: Al Fakher, Tangiers, nakhla, etc.
-1 Syrian hookah 1 egyptian hookah (Kahlil Mammon)
-Use Natural coals and make many orders online
-I'm apart of a massive online community hookah forum

And some more but im drawing blanks but thats just an idea for the Hookah knowledge part. good luck and post up what you got as you make it so we can help you.

I'd say add any work related training or expierances you've had in the past, like customer service or cashier/ money handling etc. It's still a customer service type buisness, kinda like a restraunt so anything that would pertain to the basics of that part of a job would be good to know. All your hookah and shisha knowledge would be iceing on the cake as a potential hire.

This. Employers are more interested in the fact you are a competent and good worker. Than if you specialize in (job title here).

I would write more about a passion for hookah
of course you know how to prepair one.....it's the passion for it that sets you apart
you also want to demonstrate competence....customer service success at other jobs and what not
and always for any job KSA's (knowledge, skills and abilities)

If the resume is for a hookah bar smack them with the hookah experience first! Not third

A strong statement of what you are looking for, ex., "I am seeking employment in the hookah business where I can utilize and expand the hookah experiences and skills I possess."

Follow this with relevent work experience in bullet format. Keep it relevent. Customer service, food service, etc. Stuff like that. Include duties and responsibilities as well as POC info.

Then education.

Next, awards, citations, affiliations. this would be a good place to mention your involvement with the online hookah community.

Finally, references.

Good luck with it. This format has netted me many, many jobs. I am frequently called upon to write up resumes for friends and friends of friends, family, etc. Smoke happy.

Lie and use your friends as references! I know some might say it's wrong, but I've never met anyone who hasn't at least bent the truth in some form or another on their resume. This probably won't apply to someone with no experience (and I mean any experience, not just work related) who's just talking out of his ass, but if you know what you're doing and you're confident enough that you can do it in a work setting, then I don't see a problem. Resumes are used just to get you an interview, after which any competent employer will be able to assess the situation, if not at an interview time then within the first week of your employment.

Just remember that managers look at resumes on an AVERAGE of 8 seconds. Don't make it too lengthy. One page is good. Make it pop from the very beginning!
