Food Service Resume


As a food service professional, the important things to show when writing down your resume are your past accomplishments.

This may include your leadership skills in handling a kitchen, your abilities and accomplishments as a chef or manager and possibly a hard evidence of your love and care for food and the customers you are serving.

Writing a job objective will let your employer know what your goal is. See to it that this part of your resume is written clearly and straight to the point. It must show your persistence and determination to accomplish the job that will be assigned to you.

In the summary of qualifications, write down your main qualifications in an impressive manner. This is the section that should catch the interest of one’s eyes.

If you have a certain culinary expertise, French food for example, it would be wise to note that down, depending on its relevance to the job you are applying for.

In your work experience, write down what you have accomplished as a food service professional with your past employers. Also, do not forget to include any job-related training you had undergone.

Double check your resume before you finally print it. Check for some grammatical and typographical errors that could turn off your employer against you. It should be presentable enough to be worthy of consideration by your employer.
