Joseph Michael’s Answer
As soft as these skills may seem, they are the hardest to master and remain consistent.
Basic requirements to get a job in the culinary field is listed in your state handbook.
Unless you went to culinary school, you will likely start as a prep or dishwasher. So this means if you know how to use a knife, temp a steak, understand basic culinary vocabulary, have a food handlers/serve safe, and willing to work any schedule that is convenient for your employer, you will definitely get the job.
If you have no experience, tell the employer this and convince them you will do your best to exceed expectations.
If you have experience, then you already know the answer.
