. . . And Another Word, or Four Words, on Interviewing

Last week we had yet another mini-lecture from our Career Services rep on interviewing for jobs.  (This is the time when my fellow classmates are hunting seriously for the mandatory 3-month kitchen externship that they have to do in order to graduate in September.)  We got the usual sage advice:  Show up on time, have your knives ready if they want to test you, don’t ask about vacation.

And then we got four words of advice that I truly and deeply hope is mostly specific to the chef industry in San Francisco (though I know it isn’t):

“Don’t show up high.”
