Hi Craig,

I hope you are well.

My partner has been a professional chef for 15 years and has worked as a exec and head chef ever since graduating from culinary school.

Even though she has excellent references, visual lookbooks, etc., the only thing she has been offered here after countless of applications has been an unpaid internship as a commis.

I am not trying to take anything away from your skills, I just find that this profession is very hard to get a grip on here.

I wish you the very best of luck though, and I hope you will get a good offer soon.

Best wishes

I have stated in the other thread the difficulties you will face. Unless you have a skill that is above the rest, there's little chance of someone noticing and hiring a non Swede. The number of years you've been a chef doesn't really define your skills. I know people who have been a chef 10+ years and they are really rough and don't care so much about their work. I've been a chef about 3-4 years including my apprenticeship years, and because I'm good at desserts and I do a lot of research outside of work, I've found a great job and have been asked to change the dessert menu. We are food nerds and even hung out outside of work to watch Chef's Table.

I've spotted a mistake in your CV. "I am looking to move to move to Stockholm". Also personal interests section is irrelevant. And why haven't you listed referees? Swedes don't like to read so keep it to a 2 page maximum. I'm used to receiving 10 page contracts, but Swedish contracts are just 1 page.
