Any idea on how I can transition from an unemployed computer person to a cook?
I used to be a computer programmer who got laid off several years ago and have been unable to get back in the industry. In the meantime I have found the love of my life -- cooking! Now I want to try to getting cooking jobs . . . nothing to fancy, just a normal cook job.
