I recently had an interest to try and learn some different types of foods and cuisines to cook where my natural reaction was to look online if there were videos that could satisfy my curiosity or even looking if there were adult night courses of sort available. This would usually mean investing time and money to learn as you go through trials and errors. But then I actually saw an advertisement where a restaurant was hiring cooks to help with the busy season and the requirements didn’t seem much. For example, I would imagine it’s like working at a fast-food restaurant where you can learn to do the job which is great for students.
So with that thought, would it actually be better to work at an entry level job as an example to essentially learn and earn money? In many ways it’s almost like going to school except you are getting real hands-on experience while earning an income for doing so. Of course, what you lose is that safe environment security where you can’t exactly mess up frequently as you are paid to do work. But it kind of makes sense doesn’t it?
I would imagine for these entry level types of jobs too a lot of businesses often just want reliable people as the logistics of running say the kitchen and food prep can be taught. Of course any business would prefer people who will likely stay with them for a long time or possibly grow into a bigger position. But getting paid to do entry level work as a form of learning a new skill makes more financial sense if that option is available to you.
