    First off let me say I am New to the Chef Talk site and have found allot of good info so far. I currently live in the Rockford IL area and it is not good for chefs, cooks or even families to be honest. So with that said it is time for a change a major change for my family and I so that is way I am on here looking for advice.

    We are looking into moving to Las Vegas because of the vast amount of oppurtunities in my field. Really just don't know where to start or begin so here I am asking for some advice. I want to work for the best I can not to be come a rockstar chef just simply to be the best I can be. Anyone that can give me advice would be great.

    My advice is to research places that you want to work at in LV. Then try to find out the chefs name and give him/her a phone call and give them a little of your information and then ask if you could send them your resume, also if your going to be in LV at any time try to setup meeting with these chefs, not for interview but just a coffee to introduce yourself and maybe pick his/her brain to see if they know of any one hiring. You can also apply online to any of the hotels and see if something comes up. Good luck to you and your family I hope thinks workout for you.
