If you are a chef seeking a job, you can make a portfolio that can help you showcase your talent, promote your services or restaurant, find a position, and build an on-line presence.

A portfolio will provide a central hub for information about you, your experience, your menus, recipes, awards, certifications, services you offer, and other pertinent information relating to your career as a chef. Learn how to make a portfolio to make your career management simpler and easier for others to find you.

Think about the reasons why you are making a portfolio.

Are you trying to raise your profile so the right opportunities come your way? Are you trying to promote your restaurant? Are you trying to promote your catering business? This will shape how the portfolio comes together.

Take a photo of yourself and plenty of pictures of your food. These should be high-quality photos that make you and your food shine.

Get copies of any menus you have designed. You will need to scan the menus page by page so they are in a digital format and can be used on your website.

Gather all the recipes you have developed. These can be recipes you created while in school or created for one of your signature menus. Your recipes will speak volumes about your cooking style and experience.

Look at your cv. You don’t necessarily want to list your experience online exactly like this. However, you do need to keep track of the jobs you’ve worked because you will need to list them on your culinary portfolio.

Write an autobiographic page that details who you are and what your style and philosophies are. This is a vital piece of your portfolio

Write detailed information about the services you offer, so that employers will know what you are available for. This is a particularly important step if you are a chef looking for catering or private chef jobs.

Contact past clients and colleagues to get references to give to future employers/customers.

Gather proof of any awards and certifications you have received. This can increase your marketability to potential customers.

Include your contact information on the website to enable potential employers and customers to reach you.

If you feel totally overwhelmed by this process we offer a profile building service.
