Job Search

GET A JOB! Someone’s told you already. If you think it is time, you had better be prepared. Below is a list of tips and job search engines.

Go online, read the newspaper, and look at labor department webistes to see where you stand in terms of the requirements for the sorts of jobs that you want to get. By assesing yourself early, you are leaving yourself plenty of time to gain that extra certification, take that extra class, or brush up on some skills before you take the plunge into the workplace or go on to do extra study at a college or trade school.

These are some places where you can start looking for this information

If you are looking for job postings on the internet, the following links are good places to start. Don’t get discouraged if the job postings that you like are asking for skills, or requirements that you don’t posses yet. There is nothing that you cannot achieve if you really want it and put in the time and effort to get it.

If you have Itunes, you can check out this recent podcast from the Culinary Institute of America on the subject of food jobs. It really gives a lot of good information for students thinking about getting a culinary degree and the sheer number of jobs that are available.
