Each year, the hiring pool for culinary talent is getting more competitive and less qualified for the positions we need to fill in our kitchens and on events. While all of our eyes are peeled for the next catering "superstar," we usually end up filling our slots with culinary interns and like-skilled individuals. Instead of turning away those young, eager cooks in search of a more experienced staff, Footers Catering embraces the open-minded culinary students and ushers them through an extensive training program. Join Chopped star Heather Carr as she discusses how the company develops cooks from Day 1 to 90 with SMART goals, performance evaluations, and most importantly—a leadership style that keeps cooks around for more than just one busy season.
