    Your Home Science Degree will not be enough to get you a job in Star Category hotels and Restaurants for the Chef position.
    These hotels normally look for people who have done their three year bachelors degree in Hotel Management
    The candidates should ahve specialized in the subject Food Production.

    A hotel Management candidates joins the Hotel as MT or Commis and with time they reach the position of Chef
    It takes on an average 6-7 years for a Hotel Management Graduate to become a chef in Hotels

    Hi..............,

    Suggestions ------>
    * Just home science is not sufficient .
    * In food line you need to have a Caterene degree.
    * You need to do course in hotel management as well.
    * These courses are available world wide .
    * Then you can apply in any hotel or can even open your food industry.

    Thanks

    I am extremely sorry to say that in modern world it is not possible to be employed as chef after pursuing course in home science especially if you are talking of big hotels and restaurants.But you can get into small firms if you are good at cookery.Inorder to be employed in big hotels and restaurants as chef,
    You need to pursue hotel management course atleast.You need to be a master of the kitchen sector in it and not the hospitality sector.You have to do the course from IHM(government institutes especially IHM,Delhi) to get good exposure and employment in big hotels like that of TAJ,Oberoi,ITC groups.You can also get employment in big hotels as chefs if you win any cookery shows at national level or may be very popular cookery show at state level.Masterchef India is a big platform for this.

    Hello,

    Now a days every stream of work ask for specialised people.In the same way,in order to be a chief you need to have a specialised degree in Hotel Management.Such courses teach all the detailings of the art of cooking different cuisines.You may have good idea in cooking,but that extra detailing you wont be having because you have not gone for such course which they will be asking for.You are just in the 2nd year.If you are really interested you can leave home science and go for hotel management course.This will widen your scope to be a good chef.

    No your this degree will not be suitable for the job as a chef in the hotel industry. If you want to make career in the hotel industry then you have to do the hotel management course which is a three year regular program. You should do your this program from any reputed institute so that you can get the job easily.

    Hello Aspirant,

    Your aim is not bad,but very good.At present,many courses have been introduced to be specialised for a particular field.In order to be a chef in a big hotels or in a restaurants,you must be practicing to prepare variety of foods in order to be expert in cooking.Also you should have control over language such as English & any other regional language with Hindi so that you can explain the process well when you need it to do in a special programme.

    Also you must do Hotel management course after your graduation in Home science so that you get maximum chance of selection to the chef.

    Thanks & good luck.

    Ashok..

    With home science degree you would not be able to get jobs in star hotels as Chef.

    Please note that CHEF is a specialized job and your require training for it
    You either have to do the three year hotel management course from the hotel management college or you need to do a craft course in food production.
    This course can be of 1 year or 6 months
