I am trying to find out the best places (particularly in Europe) where chefs go to find jobs internationally.
I am non-EU, but I am a NZ citizen so I am placed well to at least go over and find jobs/do interviews.
I do have a small criminal record (from a sillier time), so the USA doesn't quite work for me - but the consulates in a number of European countries said that the record shouldn't matter.
Sweden has been identified as having a labour shortage in chefs, so this is one option. Any other suggestions are greatly welcomed! Feel free to post your experiences.
Note: When I finish Culinary School I will also have concurrently had 2-3 years working in a kitchen which has been recognized as a top 10 cheap eat in our NZ food magazine. So I won't be going with 'no' experience but I will be disadvantaged in comparison to experienced chefs.
Language won't be an issue: Let's just assume that anyone willing to take this step are expected to learn the local language ;). I am currently learning Swedish because my sights are set on Sweden.
Other countries I am considering: Spain, Italy, Denmark, Austria, Germany
