I am currently working as a personal chef to a very wealthy couple and have been so for almost 2 years but I have decided that its about time to move on. I am interested in going to work for a company with great benefits as my wife and I are expecting our first baby in January. The job I currently work is just not where i want to be and i find myself stressed, upset, and affected in my life by it. I have 15 years of culinary experience and I went to culinary school in 2002. I have been in fine dining for 6 years and everything from health food kitchens to huge production catering companies, as well as running my own catering business for 2 years. I currently make good money,60 k a year and I am having a hard time finding anything near that. Since I have done many things in the past 5 years I really havent been more than 2 years at one place. I have leadership skills and knowledge of what it takes to run and manage a kitchen. I believe i am qualified for a sous chef position even though i have never held that title. Also one problem I am insecure about is that I hold a criminal record and I always feel i wont be hired by a big company, hotel or corporate fine dining because of that. What advice or leads could anyone get me? I really know im capable of a management position and believe that no matter where i go i would be able to work my way up a ladder in a short time.
