Catch your own fish then have it cooked fresh. This is a great concept usually found in the islands or the keys. You are on a boat all day, catch your fish, and local chefs will prepare it for you in a variety of menu options. But for those of us who want the same experience but are not in the islands or the keys, this may be the next best things. It will be interesting to see if this concept comes to the US.Read More
The biggest challenge for many supermarket food operators isn't coming from their own stores’ center aisles or the prepared food departments at competing markets, but rather from nearby restaurants, according to a new report from Chicago-based foodservice market research firm Datassential. The in-depth study, Supermarket Prepared Foods: Evolution Toward a True Foodservice Model, surveyed over 2,000 regular supermarket shoppers and 76 operators to provide a comprehensive analysis of how supermarkets can grow their prepared food departments. Among the study’s findings: · Forty percent of operators say that nearby restaurants limit the growth of their prepared foods department. · A majority…Read More
Interviews are often designed to be the second part of the interviewing process. The first step is typically looking at and screening your resume. They usually choose anywhere from five to ten and then narrow down to two or three resumes to actively pursue. The interviewing process is different for every corporation. Some companies have one or two interviews; others may have as many as five. Typically larger companies may require interviews with several different individuals. For example, HR may be the initial interview, followed by interviews with various department heads or senior executive officers. In all situations, the goal…Read More

WHAT I KNOW TO BE TRUE… Objections are buying signs; they are a request for more information. Interviewing is a sales process. In sales you must overcome at least three objections from every prospect! It is important to know objections are buying signs, a request for more information. There are four kinds of objections: 1. Personal (your personality, attitude) 2. Postponement (delay tactic) 3. Price (salary/benefit issues) 4. Service (your skills/experience) If you know what kind of objection you are given, you can easily overcome the objection. If you’ve received objections that you have not been able to overcome in the past, write down what type of …Read More
There are many reasons why role playing may not be something you can accomplish: You don't know anyone who can role play with you You are currently employed and don't want people to know you are in a search You find it too embarrassing to get comfortable with the process You don't want to be judged by someone who is not a hiring authority If any of these describe your situation, you have another option in order to enjoy the benefits of role playing. You can write down sample interview questions which I have included later in this presentation. Begin…Read More
Think for a moment about great athletes. They certainly did not master their sport quickly or easily. It takes years of dedication and practice in order for them to reach perfection. Michael Jordan one of the greatest basketball players of all time was also the hardest working player on his team. He went to the gym after each game (no matter how late) to work on any area he felt needed improvement. You don't win the Super Bowl, NBA Finals or World Cup when you first begin to compete. Your job search IS a competition, so it is not surprising…Read More
Allison Sullivan was amazing!She found my resume online and reached out to me. I had been in the market looking for the right next step in my career for several months and had been receiving calls daily from different recruiters so I didn’t expect anything magical to occur overnight. Allison called me, we chatted quickly about my work experience and she advised me she thought I’d be perfect for a client she was working with….and literally the next day I got a call for an interview with the client. The day after the interview, I was immediately offered a position consulting on insurance claim management. Allison was checking in with me each step of the way and made the transition from unemployed to working at a career I’m excited about in no time at all! I cannot thank her and Patrice & Associates enough for all their help!

I am very thankful for Liz Costa.
She was kind, informative, and very encouraging during the process of applying, interviewing, and finally accepting the position once it was offered to me. I have worked with several recruiters before and Liz was the most friendly and professional at the same time. She made me feel comfortable and also made me feel confident during the interview process. After only a few weeks, I now consider Liz a friend and would certainly recommend her to anyone who is in the looking in the labor market. Thank you Liz, I appreciate you as a person and a professional.

Jonathan Litt set me up for success!
I am truly excited to start this new journey at this restaurant. I can honestly say I don't think I would have been able to pull this off without Jonathan Litt's help. He was more than professional but at the same time he was authentic and explained everything I needed to do to make things work. He definitely set me up for success. My confidence level wasn't what it used to be, but with his help he made me believe in myself. He encouraged me and believed in me as well. I will never forget his efforts. My appreciation for his work and dedication will always be remembered. From the bottom of my heart, thank you for allowing me to be a part of this process. I am forever grateful.
Thank you again,

Rick Weaver is great!I love it at my new career and picture my future here. Rick was awesome in helping me choose where I need to be and how I had to get there. It took a lot of interviews and me turning jobs down because it wasn’t a fit for me. At my new career I’m in the right place!
