  • Your name and profession. Ex. My name is Natalie and I'm a bartender at X bar. If you don't have any experiences then mention that, and the desire of gaining more as you go. Include age and/or nationality if you want, but not a must.

  • Your experiences. Ex. I have worked in the restaurant business for X years/months, and wishes to further excel in this profession. If no experiences, then just simply tell why and how you want to gain more experiences.

  • Tell them more about yourself. Ex. I like to cook and read in my spare time. TED-talks are my joy, and I also like to discover new cultures and culinaries. Do regard yourself as a storyteller, and be charming and engaging while you speak.

  • Finish strong. Ex. I am reliable and always punctual. I know how to make people smile and find myself quite friendly and funny. I tend to succeed in everything I do as I believe in myself. Do you believe in me so far? Make a statement, and perhaps ask a question at the end to make them want to actually know you more?
