Chef position

Career Letter

Dear …

Re: __(Type)__Chef position

I have recently __(relocated to this area/noticed that are looking for a chef/etc.)__ and would like to explore the possibility of a Chef’s position with your restaurant. As outlined in my enclosed resume, you will see that I have __(#)__ years experience as a __(type)__ Chef, primarily in __(resort and hotel kitchens/fine dinning restaurants/etc.)__. __(In addition, I have had the opportunity of owning my own restaurant)__.

Over the years I had been given, on a number of occasions, liberty in experimenting with various __(dishes/pastries/etc.)__. Not only did I thoroughly enjoy this freedom of creativity, it also gave me good experience in menu planning and presentation. Some of my “originals” actually became my “claim to fame” in those venues I worked in.

In addition to my culinary skills, I also possess strong interpersonal and leadership skills. These have always served me well with getting the best results from a team. Working together to offer our patrons an enjoyable dining experience is the ultimate goal. This has them coming back and spreading the word. I believe that what I have to offer, would be prove to be a valuable contribution to your restaurant’s success.

Thank you for taking the time to consider my resume. I look forward to meeting with you to discuss this potential employment opportunity. Please feel free to contact me at __(phone #)__ anytime to schedule a meeting.
