Chef Resume Format

By | February 20, 2009

Chef Resume


A chef’s main job is to make a variety of dishes that should be appealing and healthy for customers. A chef may also have to manage a team of workers who assist in preparing the needed ingredients and in keeping the working place clean.

Since the chef is in charge of the menu, he or she also manages the kitchen’s inventory and keeps it up-to-date. It is a great advantage if you have these skills mentioned. List them down in your resume.

Your job objective must be properly worded and must show your motivation to apply for such job.

Your summary of qualifications must show your qualities that would justify why an employer should hire you. It is important that you write your field of expertise in culinary arts.

For example, if you are an expert on Asian cuisine, then write it, especially if this expertise has great relevance to the job you are applying for. You must be able to impress your reader, but then, do not list qualities which you do not really have.

For the work experience section, list down your past jobs and specify how much you have contributed to the success of the company you worked for. It would be wise to include management information, like the size of the team you handled.

Never fail to check your resume for grammatical and typographical errors. It must be somehow presentable to gain your employer’s attention. Vital information should be easy to find.

    Hmm it looks like your blog ate my first comment (it was
    extremely long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I wrote and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog.

    I too am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to the whole thing.
    Do you have any tips and hints for newbie blog writers?
    I’d certainly appreciate it.


    I always spent my half an hour to read this blog’s articles or reviews every day along with a cup of coffee.
