"when I face a mountain, I will not quit, I'll try to climb over it, find a way around it, tunnel underneath or perhaps stay where I am and turn it into a gold mine"
I'm looking for some advice, really.
I've been working in the same town for 5 years and I am currently at my 6th job. "The art of getting by" is easily mastered by those who go unchecked, or find a shifty health inspector who accepts tips. My school taught me a right way of running a tight ship. Yet, at almost every foodservice establishment in the county, there is a subtle lack of sincerity and integrity.
The only reason I haven't left town since finishing culinary school 2 years ago is because my work history is fragmented. so I'm just holding up in one of the better bistros in town. but I'm just picking up bad work and sanitation habits there. I have 6 more months until I will have had my fist solid year in a while on my resume, And I'm crossing my fingers for my Chef to write a letter of recommendation,. But, I have thought about enlisting in the military as a CS just to go ahead and gain some structure before I get too far bent.
I really just want to stay with food as my career, I just want out of this mucky hole. has anyone else ever just stuck it out in a sub-par town just to try and get good?
