    Hi my name is Billy, a future chef, I live in San Juan, PR. i've been reading the forum for a while and I am a little confused. I work as a cook at a bar/grill. I work alone except when its really busy on the weekends there is a dishwasher that helps me. I mostly cook fried appetizers/sandwiches but they also have a dinner menu with items such as mofongo, churrasco, grilled chicken, and shrimp. I do an inventory and set up the kitchen every morning. So what is my job title, and does this job help me get a job as a real line cook. Thanks everbody i really enjoy this forum afterwork!!

    Hello Chef and welcome.

    I reckon you have all the attributes of a chef Billy, so go you. You certainly seem to be doing all the jobs... It might be an idea to get someone in the know to to put a CV together for you for future job hunting, as you really do seem to be covering all the bases yourself.

    Welcome to Chef talk. looking forward to hearing your ideas.

    Hi Billy, I suggest that you stay in the job for a while and learn the organising part. You are evidently a sole-charge chef. It will be a good learning experience for you because you have the autonomy to make decisions how you will manage your own preps and your speed. So, I can foresee a big future for you in the industry. Goodluck!!!

    I agree with what these chefs say. I am not a chef but a line cook for a long time. Keep working hard and succeed!  Good luck to you.
