100% legit question, I recently left my employeer and decided I'd take a little time off in calgary, have fun cooking, ski in the Rockies etc etc. But ive never actually applied for a culinary position, last job was a server, I enetered a cooking competition for staff, kicked all the cooks asses(took first lol) and got asked if I could help out and slowly became a cook. Before that I worked PT like 1 day a week at my mom's friends italian restaurant. Is it the same as going door to door for a server? I haven't handed out resumes in six? years. Always online. Is it rude to go in and ask to speak to the executive chef and ask about jobs. Id probably try and go during slow times mon-thurs 2-4 ish. After the lunch rush and before diner/happy hour.
