"When I left college, I wanted to go into hotel and catering work so I took up a position as areceptionist to learn some front of house skills.
Working for a chain of hotels opened up opportunities and I was accepted as a junior manager after 2 years and was promoted to Front of House Manager after another year. I then moved to a more prestigious hotel within the group as Assistant Manager reporting to the General Manager and was there for 2 years gaining really good experience in budgeting and financial management, planning, organising and directing all hotel services, including front-of-house: reception, concierge, reservations, food and beverage operations and housekeeping.
I held full responsibility for staff management and motivation, food control and sales, wine andliquor stocks, including the planning and coordinating of menus, being very experienced and capable of advising customers on menu and wine choice. I am also acknowledged as being very good at meeting and greeting customers and organising table reservations.
After another 2 years I accepted a position as Deputy Manager of a privately owned, 400 year old converted Yorkshire farmhouse set in 80 acres on the edge of the Yorkshire Wolds specialising in the highest levels of customer care and personal service with 14 guest bedrooms, 3 self catering cottages, conference and event facilities for up to 85 guests and a Farmhouse Restaurant & Bar for up to 55 guests.
I have been fully accountable for the business performance of restaurants which involved analysing and planning restaurant sales levels and maintaining profitability and preparing regular reports for management. I have organised rotas for all departments i.e. Housekeeping, Reception Weddings and Events and the Restaurant which covers breakfasts, lunches, conferences and dinners. I have also instigated and implemented a direct marketing strategy to increase sales leading to significant improvements in the Restaurant business; I maximised sales revenues through up-selling and planning of marketing programmes.
So, when I saw your advert for the General Manager's position I was really excited as I had just started to think about looking for a similar role and I am confident of having the Hotel and Catering management skills and experience that you require. As I mentioned, I am extensively experienced in the trade, which includes front of house, restaurants, bar and functions management. With my excellent organizational ability and interpersonal skills I run operations efficiently and profitably, and provide the highest levels of customer service, in fact I was 2010 winner in the Real Welcome category of the Welcome to Yorkshire Tourism Awards."

“work experience” is the type of work you've done in the past. If you haven't started working yet you can say “Right now I'm still a student.” or “I'm a recent grad and Ihaven't started working yet.” In the second sentence, “recent grad” is short for “recent graduate” and means that you have just finished school.

Second One: What's your greatest weakness?
This is a popular question that western employers like to ask to make candidates nervous! In fact, they ask this to know how you respond to a difficult question. You shouldn't answer by telling your greatest weakness since you might not get the job! Instead, you can tell them something that isn't directly related to the job position.
Third One: Why do you feel you are qualified for this job?
This question is a good opportunity to brag a little bit. You should talk about some extra skills you have that maybe wasn't included in your resume, or talk about your greatest strength in more detail.
Fourth One: What kind of salary did you have in mind?
Salary is how much money you earn, usually per year. When asked this, it's best to answer with a salary range or approximation and not an exact figure. This shows that you are familiar with the industry if you know what the approximate salary should be.
Fifth One: If hired, when could you start work?
When answering this it's best not to say you can start right away. This might make you seem very desperate for a job. A safe answer would be “I can start at the beginning of next month.”
