Graduation is Tomorrow Morning!!!!! Happy & Scared

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

It's finally here.  Graduation day after two years of hard work.  I look at my books laying in a pile by my desk and wonder how I managed to stay on the honor roll for the entire two years,  competing with kids half my age because I WANTED IT THAT BAD AND I GOT!!!!

 

Now onto the task of finding a job in a kitchen.  A friend of ours manages a major hotel and told my husband his banquet chef is leaving and asked him to have me call him.  I will call him next week, but will also stress to him that I am a recent graduate, even with over 40 years of cooking experience, don't have any experience working in a restaurant; well, not since I was 16.  That said, I am willing, however, to learn everything I possibly can and be the best I possibly can in the process.

 

If the hotel hired an experienced banquet chef and I could be his sous, I would dedicate myself to learning every nook and cranny of the business so someday, if he/she decides to move on, I could exercise a little professional development and slide right into the spot.

 

I have my certificates in nutrition and sanitation, and also have a certificate in business management/supervision.  I joined the NRA last year.

 

 

OMG!!!  I DID IT!!!!:bounce:

Congratulations!! how exciting. These are the glory days. Absorb as much as tomorrow as you can, try to stop and feel the moment every now and then. It goes by fast, and you're going to often wish you remembered what happened. Good luck!
