A Hot Career: Culinary Arts

A Hot Career: Culinary Arts

The roar of the crowd, the smell of the air, the bright lights of the cameras. With your charming personality, coy good looks, and world-renowned flair with a whisk and a designer mixing bowl, you step out to greet your adoring audience. Reflecting back on the path to your dream, you know you did not achieve your success by gourmet brownies alone.

Perhaps this seems a bit out of touch with your more realistic goal of becoming a chef, but even the most famous cooks on television acquired their skills and their success through education and experience. The path they took may have varied a little from the one you’ll take, but the basics were probably the same.

Job prospects
There are millions of job opportunities available for you in the food-service industry, the vast majority of which are at entry-level and probably won’t require you to have any type of formal education, perhaps not even a high school diploma. (Given that, they probably won’t pay you very much either). There may be a great chef here or there who climbed up from the trenches without ever getting a degree, but if you’re just starting out, don’t expect to hop right onto the gravy train to fame and fortune.

You’ll need more under your apron belt than basic cooking skills and that designer mixing bowl to make a name for yourself.
