Definitely get ServSaved. A lot of prospective employers will take equally good candidates but pick the ServSaved one not just because it is good knowledge that restaurants should be training their empoyees on (many do not) anyways, and shows a level of commitment to the trade, but it saves them money. It's kind of become a thing around here that the employer is required to have so many people with it, and should pay for them to get it, but they don't and pass it on to us as a hiring requirement in an employers market. The more decent kitchen jobs will not hire yoy withut a car, a smart phone and servsafe, for a low paying job. It's kind of BS.
But get it. Not just to help you get a job, but because it is a very important body of best practices. I've worked in so many kitchens that do sketchy stuff and people just do what they're told and learn bad habits which is bad for the customer, the trade, and reputation of line cooks.
