Finishing Up Your Perfect Barista Resume

The Resumes above should give you a good idea on how to get started on your Barista Resume. Start by filling in your own skills and qualifications and then brainstorming about all of the things you may be forgetting including any relevant work experience including dealing with the public.

Don’t forget to mention any positive business experiences you may have had, industrious ideas that paid off, or glowing references from the community or someone who is very well known.

By the way it is never too late to improve your knowledge and qualifications, including learning more about gourmet coffees as well as brewing techniques and methods of grinding coffee as well as roasting coffee.

When you are done brainstorming then begin to hone down your Barista Resume so that it includes just the very best of your accomplishments in as few words as possible. Don’t repeat the same thing twice, but throughout the Barista Resume make sure you return again to the positive customer experience that is the true goal of the master Barista.

If you are good at remembering names and greeting customers by name, make sure to mention this as it is a very important quality. Most managers know that the most important moment of the customer experience is the initial greeting as it sets the stage for the rest of their visit, and may determine whether the customer returns again and again, or instead never comes back.

Put your best foot forward on your Barista Resume and let the establishment know that you are the very best, and have an eagerness and positive attitude that makes you not only a great team player but also someone who is not afraid to do the extra work to enhance the customer experience with each and every customer.

As you discuss your qualifications on your Barista Resume be very confident yet not overbearing or arrogant. There is a big difference. Your great skills should be tempered with a willingness to learn, and in particular a willingness to fit into a new environment which may have its own set of rules and procedures that must be followed.
