Greetings everyone, let me start of by saying that I'm currently a senior and school is almost over and I don't know whether or not to attend a community college and do the regular transfer to a 4 year university after the first 2 years or should I go straight to a culinary school? The culinary school that I had in mind was The Culinary Institute of America, but I don't know if it'd be worth it when it comes to a career. I've done research and there are a lot of pros and cons of culinary schools and 4 year colleges. I don't know what employers would want, but I've read that employers would choose candidates who have several degrees in their background over experience, and there were other articles that spoke the other way around. I know what I really want to do with my life, I know that I have a passion for cooking, it's just that I don't really know the steps that I would have to take in order to learn and develop further in this field. I'm also the first to go to college in my family and I really don't have anyone to speak with about this.
