General Career Information: Culinary & Hospitality Jobs

There are two paths available to these wanting to embark on a career in the culinary arts or hospitality. Many establishments are only too happy to offer on the job training in exchange for unskilled/semi-skilled, low paid labor such as kitchen porter. Whilst this is an attractive option for those needing an income, the work itself is usually unpleasant, tiring, involves long hours and often leaves the individual with little time or inclination to learn at the same time.

Training in a culinary institute is a far better option if finances allow. This education allows the student to learn all the skills and knowledge he or she will need in starting a culinary or hospitality career. These might include, baking, braising, sauces, food hygiene, food management, preparation, customer management and food science. The main advantage of learning at a culinary school is that a teacher is always available to discuss with students how and why mistakes were made and how techniques can be improved. This is not always possible in a busy commercial kitchen.

Successful students of a culinary institute have a wealth of opportunity at their feet. As the general population ages, more customers prefer to visit establishments that offer table service. The number of these restaurants, hotel restaurants, diners, cafes, and bars are reflecting this demand. Higher levels of diposable income are allowing people to visit restaurants far more frequently than they used to, luxury restaurants are also seeing increased custom. Jobs in these areas are following suit and are growing at a faster rate than those available at self-serve establishments. The best jobs will be offered to the best students. So anybody who has aspiration of being an executive or head chef will need to excel at college in order to secure further education and mentoring from the most exclusive dining rooms. Further career information can be gained from culinary institutes or schools.
