I'm getting closer to graduating culinary school... I'll be done by the end of summer. I'm going crazy thinking about what to do after I graduate. I live in Southern California (have my entire life) and really think this is my chance to make a big move, possibly east coast. I have always wanted to live in New York, and I feel like post-graduation would be a good time. At the same time, I'm thinking about continuing school after I graduate (I'm getting my associate's in Baking & Pastry) and am considering a bachelor's degree in Hospitality Management or Food & Beverage Management. But if I continue school, I definitely wouldn't want it to be here (SoCal).
No matter what, I want to work in a restaurant or a bakery, and I'm just trying to figure out how realistic making a big move across country would be. Literally, what would you do? Get to New York and hit the streets until you find a job? I don't really even know where to begin in regards to a move like that.
