Chef Jobs

Chef jobs are ideal for professionals with a passion for food who thrive in a fast paced environment. Chef job opportunities are also on the rise as the economy improves and restaurant demand increases. Whether your interest in a career as a chef stems from a desire to create new and exotic dishes, manage a kitchen, or to simply produce great food � plenty of chef jobs are available on Hcareers that offer the opportunity to make your mark in the culinary industry.

Hcareers is the leading job board for chef employment. You'll find chef jobs from the best employers in the food service, leisure and hospitality industries including Mortons, Hakkasan NYC and Patina Restaurant Group. Chef Jobs posted by industry power houses such as Outback Steakhouse, Ruth Chris Steakhouse and Culinary Concepts by Jean-Georges often include positions for executive chefs and head chefs as well as sous chefs, pastry chefs and assistant chefs.

Professionals interested in chef jobs need not focus on traditional restaurant employers alone. Hcareers often posts open chef positions in hotels, at country clubs and on cruise ships. Job openings are also often available for personal and private chefs. Whether you want to focus on a large menu or small one, be part of a team or work independently, your chef job search is certain to be fruitful.

Required training for chef jobs varies depending on position. Executive chefs, head chefs, chef managers and chef de cuisines, are generally the most skilled cooks in the restaurant or dining establishment. These roles are responsible for developing new recipes as well as for directing kitchen staff, preparing cost estimates for food and supplies, inventory management and setting schedules. Most Chefs have extensive prior experience in food service or the hospitality industry. The majority also have postsecondary training in culinary arts. However, line cooks, prep cooks and sous chefs may work their way up to higher level chef positions over time. Many often get their start as an apprentice chef or trainee chef through an official apprenticeship program.

As of February 2012, the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) reports that the leisure and hospitality industry employs more than 13.5 million professionals, including many in various chef jobs. Employment within this industry is quickly increasing, with more than 41,000 jobs added in food services and drinking places in February 2012 alone. The BLS estimates that nearly half of all executive chefs and head chefs are employed at full service restaurants. Nine percent are employed by hotels, caterers and food service contractors. Eight percent are self-employed as personal or private chefs.

Chef jobs should continue to increase for the foreseeable future. The BLS predicts that supervisory chef positions will increase by 6 percent by 2018. The National Restaurant Association expects restaurant employment, including jobs for chefs, to increase to 14.3 million by 2022. Competition for positions at upscale restaurants may be fierce, but the fast pace and long hours usually generates high turnover, so chef jobs will continue to become available as those leaving the industry need to be replaced.
