For many high school graduates, college is a way to get ahead, but going to college is not the only way for young adults to succeed. Many people choose to enter the workforce after high school to start earning money and gaining experience right away. These motivated young workers can have rewarding jobs without ever having to earn a 4-year college degree. If you're interested in cooking and don't know that you want to—or can—go to college, a career as a chef may be right for you. Young people need only a high school diploma or equivalent to start work as a chef, and they can eventually earn more than $50,000 a year working in restaurants. In Chefs, you'll learn how to start a career in cooking and what you need to succeed in the field. Find out about the prospects for careers in food preparation in the future, how much chefs can make each year, and whether your path to success includes a career as a chef.
