Finding a Dream Job = Dating for the Perfect Match

Finding a dream job is not about what others tell you what is the best for you. It is all about "fit." If you find a perfect-match (employer), you and your employer will be happy, and you will be successful in what you are doing at work. So, forget about the stereotypes others put on you. For example, just because somebody else has a good experience with an employer, or because an employer is perceived to be "superior" (e.g. a luxury hotel chain vs. a limited service hotel chain), it does not necessarily mean you will be happy working for this particular employer. 

Imagine if you were a vegetarian and forced to eat a filet mignon or a lobster tail. No matter how tasty everybody else tells you, would you be happy and able to finish the meats on the plate? Likewise, if you were a meat lover, would you be happy to eat veggie meals for the rest of your life?

My boyfriend asked if I wanted the donut thing they were trying to push, but I ended up going with a churro.As we received our food, my boyfriend told the server, “Good job on the upsell.”In which we received the same unenthusiastic “thank you” in reply. This all led to a discussion about suggestive selling, how easy it is, how to do it correctly, and how beneficial it is.Of course, this Del Taco drive-through upsell experience did not meet our standards of how to do it correctly, but it worked!

Is today's market too tough for upscale restaurants?

Operating a restaurant is never easy, but is it particularly challenging for upscale restaurants?

Restaurants Unlimited Inc., for instance, which operates 35 fine-dining and “polished casual” eateries, filed for bankruptcy in Delaware last week. Earlier in June, the Four Seasons Restaurant, an iconic spot for power lunch in Manhattan also closed for business after its reopening within less a year.

Are these two examples an isolated case or the tip of the iceberg? Then, if upscale restaurants are struggling to survive in today’s market, what challenges are they facing?

The rising labor cost

According to the Bloomberg report, Restaurant Unlimited Inc. hires 50 salaried employees at the chain’s headquarter in Seattle, plus another 168 full-time and 1,885 part-time restaurant workers. The rising wages in Seattle, San Francisco, and Portland have resulted in a total of $10.6 million wage expenses in the fiscal year of 2019. Nevertheless, its revenue for the year ended in May dropped 1%, at $…
