First stage

689 Views 3 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  gypsy0714

I'm a young career changer (23yrs) and have my first stage set up at a fine dining french restaurant near my home. Having never worked in restaurant before, I mentioned I was just looking to gain experience and they said I should come in to see if I'm a good fit for an 'extended stage.'I know generally what to expect as a stage but I'm worried that without any experience I'll be too raw to make a good impression especially as this is the quality reataurant where I'd expect even stages to have experience. What advice is there for someone like me who is going to be severly outclassed by everyone in the kitchen?

No one has experience until they get experience. There are always going to be people with more. There are always going to be people with less. Some people gain and grow from their experiences. Some, not so much. Get the most out this experience that you can while you are having it, as it will make you ready for the next one.
