Do's and dont's for a young chef finishing School
As a young chef it is important to make the right choices early on, there are many establishments out there that will offer you a great position with a well-paying salary straight out of school! We understand some of you may have loans, or your parents invested heavily in you training in order to qualify you as a chef.
We would recommend that you consider this step carefully as it could negatively influence your long term career growth.,. Your earliest positions as a chef lay the foundation for your career, our recommendation would be therefore that you consider searching for a position at a highly reputable establishment, for example a 5 star hotel or top 20 ranked restaurant and that your remuneration is not the overriding factor at this stage of your career, think long term and you will have laid a foundation that will support you throughout a long and successful career.
