Resume Example 1 – Food Service

Note how the Related Skills section is highlighted and how it mentions almost everything in the job description short of being able to use a toaster. Enrique’s food serving experience is limited to Burger Ranch and volunteer work at the soup kitchen. This is hardly fine dining experience but he shows he has the skills to work at a high class outfit where he’ll get the big tips.
