Kitchen crew in any food service establishment serves the same purpose – preparation and delivery of food. Resumes written for positions of this nature need to hold specific information regarding knowledge of cooking, preparing and present food according to instructions. While anyone with a little culinary sense can work as part of a kitchen crew, employers prefer that the staff they hire has some information about the way this system is handled. If you can put some experience of this sort on your resume, you are sure to be hired.

People who are part of a kitchen crew may be expected to perform one dedicated task or a number of them in order to ensure the smooth running of a kitchen. You may work as a line cook, a sous chef or a helper depending on your individual job placement. Or you may be doing all of this together.

Below is a resume sample for this position that you find handy when applying for a position as part of a kitchen crew in a restaurant.
