Dear whomever this may concern,
I am writing to apply for the position of Barista/Cafe All-Rounder
The skills and qualifications that may be of benefit:
• I spent one year as a delivery driver, as a result I am experienced with handling cash and providing satisfactory customer service. Also this role has given me tasks to restock beverages in store; this may be beneficial for stock replenishment duties that are needed to be performed.
• I have experience in operating advanced espresso machines owned within the household for the last 4 years and completed a barista course recently; as a result I am experienced with coffee making and maintenance of coffee machines. Also I hold the qualification for hygienic practices for food safety meaning I am aware of the correct temperatures, placement and handling precautions to take to ensure harm minimisation and combat contamination of food products.
• I assisted many post-graduate students within Macquarie University for the purposes of their research tasks. This involved, co-operating with the researcher with speed and accuracy, communication of significant information wanted and managing all assigned tasks to ensure they be completed on time.
• I confidently work alone and in teams. At university I was responsible for working with hazardous chemicals for practical lab work, and at times this involves individually assessing risks of techniques also where necessary assisting other students in cooperative work. In these situations I always completed and assigned tasks personally and to others to ensure that their tasks also were completed and with efficiency for the team.
• I am currently completing a full-time study for a Bachelor of Medical Sciences with a specialisation in Medicinal Chemistry at Macquarie University. I have used the knowledge and skills gained from the studied subjects to assist in assessing tasks, the risks associated and the safe course of action in dealing with the task.
• Accredited courses which I have obtained and mentioned include:
o SITXFSA101 – Use Hygienic practices for food safety
o SITHFAB204 – Prepare and Serve Espresso Coffee
Enclosed is my resume for your review. I look forward to meeting with you to discuss this position further.
