Starting a chef career

Food Lovers Chef Careers

Loving food is the main requirement for a chef career. Learning to cook food that people enjoy is a skill that you can learn. You can start at home, work with a catering company or apply for entry level cooking jobs, before you commit time and money for a chef career course. Learn about the food industry. The hours are long and the workday is pressure-filled. But people who enjoy this environment thrive on the excitement and leave work feeling satisfied everyday.

Chef Career Education

With credentials from a cooking school, your chef career can bloom. The school you choose can help you discover your best talents and interests. A cooking school also teaches you general techniques needed for every type of chef career.

Chef Career Specialisation

When the competition for chef career jobs is stiff, having a speciality helps you rise above the crowd. After you learn basic skills, focus on developing expertise. Pastry chef careers, raw food chef careers, cruise ship and holiday resort chef careers and ethnic chef careers might provide more opportunity for growth and less competition.

Chef Career Job Search

Even with a culinary school certificate, starting your chef career requires a strategic plan. Start with your chef career CV. A clear career objective sets you apart from the sea of other applicants for available jobs. It also limits your chef career job targets, so you might prepare two or three versions of your resume with specific career objectives. Highlight experience and courses, but don't embellish or overstate your skills. Volunteer or intern to gain contacts and showcase talents and get references you can use with prospective employers.
