How to Land Your Dream Cooking Gig

On This Week’s Podcast

This week my guest is chef Bob Aungst. This episode is unlike any I’ve done before, as it’s essentially a job opportunity. I’ve wanted to have Bob on as a guest for a while, but this episode isn’t about him. Bob’s responsible for finding chefs for some of the most amazing experiences in the country. Would you want to cook at the Kentucky Derby? How about the U.S. Open? These are just a couple of the events that Bob has been responsible for staffing. If you’re a chef, and you’re looking for a temporary (or even possibly permanent) gig, then this episode is for you. These jobs pay great and are all-inclusive. You don’t have to pay for travel expenses, lodging, or any of that. This isn’t one of those scam-type opportunities that us chefs get emailed to us all the time. I’ve known chef Bob for a while, and also know chefs who’ve worked with him. 

On this episode, you’ll hear how you can land your dream cooking gig. Get info about the jobs, compensation package, and how to apply. You do need to be able to hold your own at these events. Bob is looking for those with at least sous chef-level experience. For those out there who have a week or two to spare, and want to make a couple thousand dollars, this is a great opportunity. Bob‘s contact information is an episode, and below.
