I just came across this article today, and it made me think of this post, so I thought I would post it...

Need a career change? Five jobs that let you see the world

2. Chef
If you are an established chef, international hotels and restaurants may offer the opportunity to build on your career overseas while, in many cases, offering you room and board for a minimum costs. In the United States, the median annual income of a head chef/chef is $40,000, and $43,000 if you work as a chef for a hotel.

Kingsbrook USA Inc. is one company that works to place chefs in international regions. They reported England's hotel chef positions as offering £14000, or roughly $26,730 U.S. dollars per year for Chef deParties. Kingsbrook also reported between $32,458 and $38,186 per year for Sous Chefs and between $38,186 and $47,732 per year for Head Chef.

Sometimes it helps to just relax and let the future happen to you. Some of the best jobs I've had have just come at the right time and I haven't even been qualified for them but I've had some skills the company was looking for.
Travel is a great idea opener and it's a good look on your CV, especially if you end up working in the travel industry!

I worked for Disney for a year and a lot of my friends were there cooking after they had graduated culinary school. 3/4 of them went back to college. If you have a passion for cooking go for it. Don't do it just to do something.

On the other hand one of my friends has cooked on a cruise ship and is currently in antarctica cooking. It can take you places if you try.
