Tips For Getting A Craft Beverage Job Interview
When searching for a job in the craft beverage industry there are a number of things you can do to set yourself apart from other job seekers. Because craft beverage jobs are very niche, there is often a lot of competition vying for the same job listing. In a recent interview with Fullsteam Brewery CEO Sean Wilson, Sean discussed what he looks for when sorting through applications for Job Listings with Craft Beverage Jobs.
I will say this, for people who are considering applying; a personalized cover letter goes a long way.
Sean goes on to make the observation that as the CEO of a growing brewery, he does not have the time to sort through multiple applications with just general information. He gives the following tips:
- Don’t use an application template, be creative and unique
- Add a cover letter with your application
- Tailor your cover letter to represent who you are as an individual
- Share facts about the brewery and position you are applying for to show you have done some research
- Above all else, express your passion for the industry
He adds, we are in the industry of craft beer. The word craft implies that we take time and great care to produce a superior product. Do the same when you fill out an application and cover letter. It will make the difference of who I want to interview.
