THE AP­PLI­CANT

Name: Matt Bowrey For­mer po­si­tion: Ad­ver­tis­ing sales­per­son Skills: Diploma in Ad­ver­tis­ing Job sought: Chef Dream job: I was work­ing in me­dia and ad­ver­tis­ing, do­ing ad­ver­tis­ing sales and work­ing as an ac­count man­ager but I was al­ways pas­sion­ate about food and about cook­ing. I got to the point where I re­alised the job was just fill­ing in the days and get­ting the pay cheques and I wasn’t go­ing to go any­where be­cause I wasn’t putting in the at­ti­tude it de­served. I went over­seas and got work in a kitchen but when I came back I had got to an age where I couldn’t sac­ri­fice the salary, as much as I need to be an ap­pren­tice, but I had rea­son­able lev­els of ex­pe­ri­ence over­seas where I worked at sous chef level in the first year of work­ing. I backed my­self and went for it.
