    First step, ask your chef instructors!

    Second step, ask your placement advisers at the school.

    Third step, make a list of ALL the restaurants, commercial kitchens, institutional kitchens within a reasonable driving distance.

    Meanwhile, compose a cover letter template that you can customize for a particular inquiry that has:
    • What you want to do, i.e. three month externship to complete educational requirements
    • Why you want to extern at that particular establishment
    • Why they should hire you over any other applicant
    • When you will be available and what hours (so as not to conflict with your job)
