I just got laid off due to the great economy -no condolences needed- I was sick of working there anyway : ) I figure this is great opportunity to follow my passion rather than to get another crappy front office job. What I'm asking my SE friends is for tips/ ideas for breaking into the food industry- when you have limited experience. In not setting the bar too high here..I'm looking at going to Whole Foods food prep area as a starting point and wondering how to get over the "culinary experience required" hurdle- I could fudge it an interview- but on paper I look pretty poor. Sorry to be a bit wordy- but wanted to anticipate some of your questions. Thanks for your help and suggestions!
