Hi all and chefs, I have an urgent question because my partner which now has a solid 3 years experience has worked from commis chef to chef de partie in two restaurants already, but now she has been offered a position as cook at a new hotel at crown sydney, she took the position because a head chef that brought her in told she needed a certificate to be a commis chef or chef de partie at this hotel, is this true? what determines your position as a professional chef? is the certificates really neccessary?

your help is greatly apreciated guys!
Thank you.

Never heard of this, but Yes. Certificates are must in some country to proved that you are certified food handlers and knowledgeable in culinary. but usually that a first step to enter professional culinary career. Also, there will be some company policies (hotels/resorts) where they have their own hiring policies and requirement. In the end of it, prove & track record of your last employment, interview and trade test are determine the hiring, Salary, benefits, and job level within it's company. 3 years from a Commis to CDP that very impressive. Which Company does your Partner go to??
