Nate,

Your experience within the restaurant business will get you ahead. Like any job, you start at the bottom and work your way up for the good shifts and extra hours. I would seek out a head chef at a well known restaurant and see if there is some type of internship program that you can get into. If you found this opportunity somewhere where you would want to work, after your internship, you might find that you will get hired on as a full time chef. These are all the questions I would suggest asking as you start to seek out this particular filed of employment;
1) Is there an internship or on the job training available?
2) After the training or internship, is there a direct hire option?
3) What are the chef hours?
4) What is the time period that I must complete before taking on more hours or a bigger role?

Good luck in your journey! I truly hope you find what is going to make you happy. Remember, if you are doing something you love, you will never work a day in your life!

Hi Nate.


There are degrees in culinary; universities around the world to attend. The other way is keep doing what you are doing; maybe take another job in the kitchen; start cooking on the side or own your own for more experience.

If your current opportunity does not allow more hours, you might need to explore other opportunities. I will say now your in a world of self development when it comes to culinary. Every where you go people have their own websites, videos, blogs on cooking.

You could start your own youtube channel and record your cooking for exposure; it just depends on what is your goal in the kitchen? What kind of food? Cooking in a fancy restaurant, overseas? In a commercial chain restaurants, sounds like you still have a lot of questions you have to answer for yourself and start creating a plan. Network, network, network......
