The hospitality industry is expanding rapidly, both in the nation and in the Sacramento area. While the industry continues to expand, the need for skilled labor continues to increase and the existing pool of potential employees continues to shrink. The industry is in desperate need of employees who have the necessary skills to serve the public, and / or can demonstrate basic proficiencies in kitchen skills. Employers are looking for employees to fill job opening in a variety of kitchen work environments, ranging from entry level to highly skilled artisans, as well as those who have the organizational, technical and interpersonal skills to serve the public in a front line service capacity.

The job that you will receive will be directly related to your skills, abilities and attitude. You will not be a Chef. (No culinary school will make you a Chef) A Chef is the leader and manager of a kitchen, and requires work experience above and beyond what any school can give you. However, the advantage of attending a culinary school is that it gives you a great deal of background, knowledge, and skills in short period of time. That will allow you to fast track your career once you begin working in the industry. That being said, you will likely begin your career as a line cook. We recommend that you begin that position prior to graduation, which will allow you to reach your professional goals more quickly. Many of our graduates have achieved the position of sous chef, chef or owner within only a few years of graduation.
