So I previously worked in kitchens for about 18 years, 16 of those were in a city which really didn't offer me much opportunity to grow as a professional. But upon moving to Vancouver 2.5 years ago I decided to switch career paths and start an apprenticeship to become an electrician. So between school and work I have been doing electrical for 1.5 years now and so far I am feeling very uninspired and am thinking about going back to kitchens.
The restaurant I was working at when I first arrived in Vancouver really seemed to like me and I enjoyed it there, and they targeted me to be groomed to become a sous. But I already committed to the electrical program and wanted to give it a go. Electrical, the hours are ok I work 7-330 Mon-Fri and it's decent money and will only get better. But I find I'm missing the relationships I built in restaurants, the people and the feel of the organized chaos.
If I did decide to go back I would end up going to culinary school or preparing myself to challenge the red seal exam.
Just wondering what you guys think>? I wanted to get some opinions from some professionals out there. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
