I have low expectations

"Previously at Starbucks Coffee Co. the position I occupied allowed me to serve customers and exceed their expectations, by providing them with the right product"

What ? Surely that's meeting expectations isn't it ?
Or did the conversation go like this ?

"I'd like a large Americano please."
"Certainly Madam, here is your large Americano"
"Wow. Thank you for my large Americano. That's more than I could have hoped for !"

A large Americano in Starbucks speak is known as a 'grande' so by respoding to someone in plain English and not replacing a perfectly good word(as is their habit)for some absurd substitution, you may well be surpassing expectations

In addition to RE-reading a resume, it's a good idea to have a company that specializes in resumes rework it if it's not well-done. I found a company that has been in business since 1995. They're at www.careerexperts.org

Please BEWARE the company I posted above! I have sadly learned that they are NOT legit. They're a SCAM.

Stay away from ***www*careerexperts*org***

That's actually very clever. 50% of the time they mess up your order and give you the wrong thing.

If theyt can sell their experience in Starbucks using their creativity then i think THAT is a marketable skill in itself!
