The above job search links are set for Chef type positions. National Restaurant Association: Restaurant Job Growth Hits 17-Year High in 2012, Is Third-Largest Job Creator into 2013 February 7, 2013 The restaurant industry added jobs at double the rate of the overall economy in 2012, and the National Restaurant Association (NRA) expects this trend to continue in 2013. Eating and drinking places added jobs at a robust 3.4 percent rate last year, the strongest increase in 17 years, according to NRA’s analysis of new figures from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS). The restaurant industry is the third-largest private-sector job creator since the employment recovery began in March 2010. The solid restaurant industry job growth in 2012 represented the 13th consecutive year in which restaurant job growth outpaced the overall economy. Overall, restaurant employment currently stands 441,000 jobs above its high-point before the recession, while the overall economy is still down 3.2 million jobs from the pre-recession peak. “The sizable disparity in 2012 job growth marked the continuation of a long-term trend,” said Bruce Grindy, chief economist for the National Restaurant Association. “In fact, during the last 13 years, the number of eating-and-drinking-place jobs jumped 25 percent, while total U.S. employment rose by only 4 percent.” The NRA expects restaurants to add jobs at a 2.7 percent rate in 2013, a full percentage-point above the projected 1.7 percent gain in total employment. Employment gains will continue to be driven by growth in the number of locations, as well as existing restaurants staffing up to meet an improving business environment. “The projected 2013 gain will represent the 14th consecutive year in which restaurant industry job growth outpaces the overall economy, and the third consecutive year in which the industry registered job growth in excess of 2.5 percent,” Grindy added. “In comparison, the overall economy hasn’t posted job growth above 2.5 percent since 1998.”

“Job opportunities for chefs, cooks, and food preparation workers are expected to be plentiful because of the continued growth and expansion of food services outlets, resulting in average employment growth, and because of the large numbers of workers who leave these occupations and need to be replaced. However, those seeking the highest-paying positions will face keen competition.” – Occupational Outlook Handbook 

“In 2012, the National Restaurant Association expects the restaurant industry to add jobs at a 2.3 percent rate, a full percentage point above the projected 1.3 percent gain in total U.S. employment. The industry is expected to gain back all of the jobs lost during the recession by early 2012, while the overall economy isn’t expected to be back at pre-recession employment levels until 2014.” 2012 Restaurant Job Growth According to the National Restaurant Association
