The food industry is very large and has many paths available that can require different classes and experiences. I would start off with listing what you enjoy from the culinary. You should include the pros and cons that you can think off and look up some of the job requirements for specific things. Since you can specialize with things such as pastry and many more. When it comes to being a service manager it's not just about culinary but being able to manage and motivate other around you. The kitchen can be a very chaotic and fast pace having an understating of how to handle high street and make clear decision will help. I would suggest to shadow or work in the industry and see what you enjoy the most of the job. If you are going from one position to another try to focus and see which one you enjoy more and try to focus in that area. Reaching out to your local restaurants and trying to speak to their manager and chefs to get an understating of why they chose those paths. This will give you an inside look of the industry and what goes on behind the curtain.
