Before I start my questions, let me do a short introduction. Currently working in Fraser place, a hotel + service apartment as a cook and studying part time in baking and pastry. I know this line is tough and long hours but I really love doing it. Used to work in a central kitchen for bread shop for a month but due to the environment there I left.. The place im working now is good I would say.. I do cooking and setting up for breakfast. And prep as well.. And ordering of stocks. Basically, everything. I only worked for less then 3 months.
Before this I was already working as a part timer in restaurant as a server and I slowly moved to kitchen to do simple prep which I really love doing.
I don't have much experience in kitchen though. Recently i applied a job in Fairmont and they contacted me and after the interview they actually offered me a job as a Pastry cook in one of their semi fine dining restaurant. Of cause I'm excited because it's one of my dream to work in a hotel line. But their pay that they offer me is lower then what my current job is paying me.
Here is the question
I don't know if I should accept this job? I would love this opportunity to work there..
1. I think it's good for my resume profile. But my pay will be lower.
2. I don't know what it is like over there as it will be a new environment..
3.On the other side I like my current job as well but I don't know about career progression because the place I'm currently working used to serve only long term stay residence and only they recently accept short term stay guest as well.
4. I'm studying in baking and pastry and Fairmont is offering me as a pastry cook..
I've been thinking quite a lot for this few days and asking all my friends and family. They ask me to decide on my own.. I know only I have the answer but I really appreciate some advice..
Thanks in advance!!
