Should A Cook, Sous Chef, Or Chef Have Their Own Personal Website?
Anyone who is serious about a career in the culinary arts should take advantage of the perks associated with running your own website. Whether you are a graduate of a culinary program running your own kitchen or you are just starting out as a line cook, you can benefit from having your own personal website.
Benefits Of Having A Personal Website
A personal website shows future clients and employers that you are very serious and focused on your career. Having your own website makes you seem more professional and put together. When an employer gets a resume with a great cover letter, resume, and a link to your website, they will surely be impressed.
Your website is a place for you to brag about your skills and show off your best work. Many serious chefs have a portfolio featuring some of their proudest creations, well, you can add your whole portfolio to your website. When an employer or client asks for some examples of your work, how easy is it to send them to your website?
You may work in an Italian restaurant but be considering a position in a restaurant that specializes in French cuisine. Well, you may be a great cook in both areas but your resume will not reflect that if you haven’t worked in one before. On your website you can post photos to your portfolio featuring French cuisine so your future employer will be able to see your skills in this area as well.
If you are just starting out in your culinary career, you may find it hard to find employment. A great website with an awesome portfolio and resume can change this, and put you in high demand.
What Should A Cook’s Website Include?
- Your website should include a home page explaining who you are and what you do
- You should include a highly professional resume on your website
- You will want to include a portfolio on your site
- You will want a page explaining how one should get into contact with you
