1. Summary (Cover Letter) - CV/Resume Part 1 [Mandatory]
To Whom It May Concern:
I am writing to enquire about possible employment with your organization within the catering department as a Chief Steward/Chef. With my experience in working in various roles within the cooking/catering field, I feel that I can bring a variety of skill set and knowledge to your organization.
While my career path started in the area of food preparation, I have used that work experience to advance into other areas and increase my knowledge of the business aspect of this field. I feel that my background is an asset to potential employers as it has allowed me the opportunity to work on a dynamic, multi-service vessel where I was the Chief Steward responsible for all galley operations including food preparation, inventory, ordering of supplies/food, and cleaning.
In addition, I have specialized training/certifications in CPR/First Aid, STCW Fire Fighting, Water survival and water safety, all certifications necessary when working at sea.
I am focused, well organized and eager to expand my opportunities, thus the reason for my application today.
I would welcome the opportunity to see how I can best work with your organization and I look forward to hearing from you soon to schedule an interview to further discuss employment.
