Ah yes...
We are experiencing "severe weather" says the Weather Network: -9C, -20 with the wind. Pretty balmy compared to you!

I remember experiencing +40C one summer many moons ago when I was at the Royal Winnipeg Ballet Summer School. You guys don't do half measures!

Hey chicken_dog,
In response to your question, I will not be starting the culinary program until Aug/Sept of this year (those darn waiting lists...), so I will obviously not be in the work practicum starting in April.
Does your Golf Course participate in the work practicum, for RRC students?
I have dreams of being in this course! I've been waiting for over a year to start. 'Can't wait.
:crazy:

I havent participated in the program in 4 years. I am giving this a second shot. I got a real bad student 4 years ago she created all kinds of drama and only wanted to work the minimum numbers of hours. I need a person to work full time from may to september.
If this next person works out, which i think i know who to choose as i have some inside information, i hope it works out so i can continue to accept students for workterms.

By any chance was this 'drama queen' student a young one? That sounds to me like 18 year old behavior.
While you were in college, did you work full time? I've read that doing so is a good test, to see if this is the right career joice for you (the crazy hours, and everything). I thought that seemed a bit on the extreme side. What are your thoughts?

Hello fellow canadians,

I am from Montreal, Qu├ębec but I am working in miami beach for the last seven months.

Sorry guy's and girls but the weather here is about 25c.

But I still miss the cold weather of the fine land that is Canada.

The girl i had in the work term was inded 18. When i was 18 i was taking this career pretty seriously. I was 22 when i was given a Executive Chef position. I recomend not working during school, because if you are serious spend all your time studying after it is only 2 years of your life.

When i was in red river i did not work.

I do however recomend getting a job in this industry at one of the busiest possible places around and then decide if you want to continue on with being a chef. As i have read on this site "work hard and be a sponge"

If you want to really learn what it is like to work in a crazy environment, pm me and we could set up an interview for this coming golf season.
