Here's the thing, I'm 18, and will be done with high school in December. I've been cooking since I was little. It's always my passion, and I love how you can become connected with different cultures and people simply by making a certain dish.
BUT, I've never had experience in a restaurant. I have a feeling that this would hold me back, no?
My plan was to hopefully get a job in New York City being a bus boy or something entry level like that, and working my way up, while attending culinary school, but would it even be possible to get a job in a NYC restaurant with absolutely no restaurant experience? And what about culinary school? Would most of them deny me for having no experience?
What would you suggest I do in this situation?
I know this was kind of the same question over and over again, but any input would be greatly appreciated.
