Off hand it is hard to say but something might be amiss in your sales pitch. If you are still in school, do they have a director of career placement that would be willing to do mock interviews with you? Same thing with chef instructors. Mock interviews will allow you to fine tune your interview skills with a culinary bent. Your interview skills may be fine overall, but perhaps you are coming across as a ? mark to chefs as to why you are applying for the position that you...

I usually just skin the gizzards before cooking. Leaves you with nothing but pure meat.
Any business that wants to stay a business for the long haul needs to keep an eye on the bottom line, there is just no way around it.   When I work for a restaurant as a chef, I am an employee working for a business; but at the same time I am running my own business within that business.   I am CEO and president of Chef Layne For Hire and you better believe that I keep a good eye on the bottom line of Chef Layne For Hire.
