education completed: high school/GED


I am searching for new employment opportunities Seattle to Everett or Whidbey Island. I have extensive work and always in food and beverage in the FOH for many years. A glimpse below of my resume and I can also attach a full copy and have a hard copy available.
I recently have relocated back to the greater Seattle area from Washington DC. An untimely search while the virus has begun and forced so much closures. I am seeking an open position opportunity of one that I can learn. Or I am also looking for a Server position either in a restaurant or catering facility when things begin to open up and start getting back to normal again. I am currently available for any hours seven days per week and I am seeking full time employment.
If your position is one in which involves me cold calling people to sell... Sorry, I do not think I would be interested. My only experience is in Food and Beverage. I am open to different types of employment. I am currently located on Whidbey Island. I have the ability to travel the island or take a ferry to Mukilteo. I can travel Seattle/Everett/Eastside anytime if the pay is enough to cover the ferry costs or I can also work from home doing maybe costomer service representations or other at home services. I am open to different scenarios. I have posted a few times and it seems like I get a couple rather vague responses. Please, to save both of our valuable times, please let me know the specific job title, basic job discription/duties, general location and hours. I would like full time work and long term employment.
If you would like to contact me about any potential openings you may have it would be great to speak with you at your convenience.

Thank you.

Best regards,
Mark McCarthy
