The Best Way To Secure A Position
Applying at your local Perkins Restaurant and convincing the management to hire you is your best bet to secure a position.
Applying in person and explaining your conviction face-to-face generally is much better than simply filling out an application.
If you can get a referral from another employee at that location you will also be helping yourself out tremendously.
