I would like to express my interest in the position of prep cook at XYZ. I can see from your post that you value comprehensive experience, and I have no small amount of experience in the food industry. Having worked my entire adult life in restaurants, I know the ins and outs as a bar back, busser, waiter, chef, prep cook, and manager.
Your restaurant has always been a pinnacle of culinary exploration and innovation, and your foray into Korean-Mexican fusion is of great interest to me. As my experience meets both your requirements and your preferences, I will address my qualifications as follows:
|You Request…||I Have…|
|4+ years in food service industry||8 years' combined experience at ABC, DEF, and GHI restaurants|
|2+ years in a management capacity||Manager at GHI from 2012 - Present|
|Food prep experience preferred||3 years' experience prepping dinner entrees at DEF|
|Culinary degree preferred||2-year degree from JKL Culinary Institute.|
As DEF was also an exclusively-Korean restaurant, I am well-versed in the various delicacies and techniques in creating and experimenting with Korean dishes.
I will contact you next week to set up a time to discuss this fantastic opportunity further. Thank you for your time and consideration.
