The most amazing thing happened yesterday in my FOOD JOBS class at the CIA (Culinary Institute of America).
A student, (I’ll call her Student One), said she would really, REALLY like to work in the White House. “Hmm,” quoth I. I then mentioned her dream job to another member of the culinary faculty, who told me one of the chef/instructor’s teaches the new chefs employed at Camp David.
That same afternoon, I told another class about this amazing piece of information. Another student, (Student Two), in this class revealed she had recently worked as a sous chef on Air Force One.
Upshot. With these connections and a couple of letters of recommendation, Student One is applying for a job at the White House.
This is actually true, (though I confess that I’m capable of elaborating the truth for the sake of a good story).
I mention this as yet another example of If you don’t ask for what you want, the chances of getting it are pretty close to zero.
