    I have just received a job offer from a fine-dining restaurant in Texas, and I have decided to accept the offer.  I still have to apply and submit a resume, but a chef who works there already (the chef who trained me, actually) is going to provide me with a recommendation/reference, and the executive chef I work for right now has also agreed to offer a reference for me.  I feel quite confident about getting this job, and although I will have to relocate from Pennsylvania to Texas, I do not mind.  I have many friends in the area, and I'll get to work with my original chef again!  I miss working with him, and I am looking forward to learning more from him. I am not that great at writing a resume however, and I was wondering if anyone here had any good advice for writing a proper-looking resume.  Any advice would be appreciated.

    I made a resume a few weeks back and all I did was Google an example of a resume and insert the appropriate information using the template that they gave me.

    @ Shroomgirl, I sent you a PM, and thank you!

    @ apfahl, That is how I started mine, but I wasn't satisfied with it.
