Although there are few formal requirements for food preparation workers, but not everyone has what it takes to keep a busy kitchen running smoothly at mealtime rush hours! Being able to perform tasks in the most efficient manner is essential in this profession. As is the ability to follow instructions and work well with the rest of the kitchen staff. Duties include scrubbing, peeling, and preparing vegetables, de-boning fish, and making sandwiches or mixing bread and pastry dough. Opportunities can be found at restaurants, delis, and fast food establishments, as well as at private catering firms and school and hospital cafeterias. Any place that serves food needs food preparation workers. A certificate from the state's Department of Public Health is usually required. But if you care about cleanliness and are ambitious and eager to work, becoming a food service worker can be a great place to start a career.
