Show Enthusiasm during your Interview

Everyone likes the feeling of being wanted. Show enthusiasm! Don’t appear to be what we in the business call a “shopper” or a “tire kicker”. The “What can you do for me?” approach to interviewing, even in this full-employment economy, gets you a quick exit to the front door. (Sometimes the back door, if you’re particularly offensive).

What Clients Say About Patrice & Associates

  • I appreciate what Sherri and Patrice and Associates Hospitality Recruitment did for me and my career.

    Sherri Balzer is an excellent job recruiter. I had been working with her for more than 3 months where I had multiple job interviews with different companies. She is always very detailed, caring, patient, and most of all very professional. I turned down multiple job offers because they were not a good fit for me and Sherri understood my reasons. Instead of losing hope in me she kept working hard looking for other companies that suited my skill set and knowledge. We found the perfect company and I got the best job offer available. I appreciate what Sherri and Patrice and Associates Hospitality Recruitment did for me and my career. Respectfully,

    Andrew Figueroa

  • Working with Jillian and Patrice & Associates Hospitality Recruitment was an amazing experience.  First of all, the work Jillian did on my resume before presenting me to the client was outstanding.  I really feel that it presented me in the best light for the client (and it worked because I got the job!).  I’ve worked with a lot of recruiting firms before and the level of service provided by Jillian was far and above the rest of the industry.  Jillian was always available to talk any time of the day and really made me feel like she wasn’t just concerned with placing a candidate - she also cared about my happiness and well-being throughout the process.
