I have a diploma in hospitality and commerical cookery, and am currently working in a well renowned 5 star hotel; Ritz Carlton.
My position is commis 2 and its been 1 year now. I have learnt an immense amount of techniques, working under a lot of pressure and work with some of the best chefs. I've been blessed to be given this opportunity to work in one of the best branded hotel in the world. This opportunity has invited many more offers some even not requiring an interview for the job because of my experience here.
Although i have concerns on whether i should study more as the diploma was a short course (6 months) but was taught ALL the basics.
Should i look into pursuing a degree? Or am i better off getting the amount of experience in the same time period as i would working?
My future goals is to do something of my own but thats a long term goal.
As for my short term goals is to gain much foreign experience as i can.
My total work experience has been 2 years ( worked in a steak bar ) prior to my current job.
I am 20 years old so this is the time i need to make some good decisions!
