do i need a culinary degree to become a chef?
While you continue with college, get a part time job in a restaurant kitchen.
If after 3 months you find that you look forward to going to work, get a full time job in a restaurant kitchen while continuing with college.
If after another 3 months you find that you look forward to going to work, consider changing your major to business.
By the time you graduate, if you have continued to work full time in restaurant kitchens while going to school and still look forward to going work, then you will be well on your way to becoming a chef.
