Top Tips for Chefs Seeking Employment in the Catering industry

Looking for employment is never much fun, but there are ways to make the job search easier. Here we�ll take a look at the best tips for getting the employment position that you want.

First, as a chef, you should consider looking at chef employment boards. These websites offer job listings for various areas and it is quick and easy to skim through the listings to see what jobs you might be interested in. Try boards like to get you started.

Having plenty of job experience behind you is a big plus when you are looking for employment. Get as much as you can and make use of any unpaid positions you took during your studies. These can all go on your CV, along with your previously paid jobs.

Have a clear idea of what you are looking for. Do you want a live in position? You might want to check the boards for hotel or resort jobs, which usually offer the option of living in. Are you aiming for a high-brow, stressful position with an opportunity to move up, or do you prefer to take a fun position? Knowing what type of job you are interested in will help you search jobs faster.

Decide what your range is. Are you only willing to work near where you live, or would you consider moving? This can help you narrow down your job search to companies offering employment only in certain areas. When you enter a job board, there is often a search box where you can type in a keyword, like �Suffolk�, for example.

Read the job description carefully. Although some people do manage to get employment which they are not exactly qualified for, you will have a far better chance with positions that fit your qualifications. These are generally well laid out in the job description, so read it and pay attention.

Know what you are worth. A good employment directory will include wages for the jobs listed. There are always people who will try to get a great employee for next to nothing, so realize what your skills and education are worth and don�t bother applying for the low-end jobs unless you are absolutely desperate.

By following these tips, you should be able to find reasonable, decent employment as a chef in the area you want. It can take a while to find the right job, but it will happen, just be patient and keep searching.
