A culinary student will have many opportunities to work across many platforms. A resume built for this purpose needs to focus on the student’s knowledge of culinary arts. Culinary students looking for work or internship will have to focus on their ability to work well within a team. Depending on what a culinary student wants to work as, s/he will need to be specific when writing a resume. If for instance, they want to eventually work as a chef, they will need to highlight her ability to direct the work of kitchen workers and handle recipe creation and menu planning.
Resumes created particularly for culinary positions need to be targeted to the position you are applying for so that job placements can be made easy. An employer looking through your resume will want to know what you can do for him so put in as much information as possible. Granted that it will be difficult to put in information of experience especially if you are a student applying for a first job but you can easily rely on any part time or voluntary jobs that you may have held in the past.
Here is a resume sample that you can use as a reference.
