Caterer Resume

Caterers are professionals that provide food service to different public or private locations, such as hotels, houses of residence, air free events like weddings and so on. Although in some cases the catering services refers only to food drop-offs, caterers are also in charge with all the activities related with the full-food serving at an event. They have to prepare the food and drinks before the event or during the event and collaborate with the catering staff in order to set up the dining area and wait the tables, in case there is no self-serve buffet involved.


In some cases, the caterer can be associated with the event planner and participate in the decorating activities and the basic organization of the event. Caterers need to know how to embellish their food and make it appropriate with different events and different themes. A caterer's resume should outline the area of culinary skills and different successful catering experiences. Catering assistance at renowned events in a community or even a city is a great asset.
