I have been accepted into the CIA's Executive Pastry Chef program (Napa Valley) pending my completing six months of outside food service work. I live in Coronado, California (San Diego area) and am not having any luck finding food service employment in my area. I have been honest in my approach in letting the perspective employer(s) know that I will in fact only be available for the six-to-eight month period so to fulfill my school requirement. I have practiced architecture for a number of years (self-employed) so my job-seeking skills might be out of tune. Any suggestion(s) as to where I might be able to secure a position would truly be appreciated.
