    Hey everyone, my name is Erick, i`m currently attending my first year at hudson county community college in jersey city, nj in an associates degree program for culinary arts. Not really sure what exactly it is i wanna do in the restaurant industry, i do however know i want to gain experience in as many areas of the professional cooking industry as possible. I`v been looking for work lately but realizing people won`t even look at you unless you have 2-3 years professional experience, and some places even specify about nyc experience. if anyone reads this and lives near by or attends the same school dont hesitate to msg me i`d love to make some freinds in the undustry, even if its just 2 shoot the sh*t. I`m glad i found this forum, it seems like there are a lot of experienced and very knowledgable people, i kind of feel like i hit culinary forum pay dirty. looking forward to meeting everyone :)
