EmploymentCrossing Launches Job Site for Chefs with About 2,000 Currently Active Jobs

EmploymentCrossing recently launched a new website, ChefCrossing. Searching for a chef job typically requires going to multiple websites to find jobs: employer websites, restaurant websites, other hospitality industry websites, and multiple job boards. A new website, www.chefcrossing.com, seeks to consolidate every chef job in the hospitality industry in one place. ChefCrossing contains all types of job listings for those who want to pursue career paths as chefs.

Pasadena, CA, June 02, 2008 --(PR.com)-- EmploymentCrossing has unveiled ChefCrossing (www.chefcrossing.com), an innovative job-consolidation website that is seeking to change the way chefs find jobs. The site saves chefs and cooks thousands of hours of research when looking for new ventures and jobs by locating job listings for them. ChefCrossing consolidates jobs from employer websites, job portals, restaurant websites, and other hospitality websites and collects them in its revolutionary proprietary database.

Chefs and other culinary experts are expected to be in demand in the near future too. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, 3.1 million jobs were held by chefs, cooks, and food preparation workers in 2006, two-thirds of whom were employed in restaurants and other dining establishments. The employment of chefs and cooks is expected to grow by 11% over the 2006-2016 decade, faster than employment in other occupations. About 351,000 jobs are expected to be added to the industry over the decade.

“There are so many chef jobs out there that job seekers do not know about,” says A. Harrison Barnes, founder and CEO of ChefCrossing. “The number of jobs present in various hospitality websites far surpasses what most job seekers see advertised on most job sites. By bringing those jobs that are on employer websites to job seekers in the chef industry, we are giving them many more options than they would get with a traditional chef job search on other commercial job boards.”

In what is perhaps a reflection of the current culinary job market, the most popular searches on the website are:

chef jobs
pastry chef jobs
executive chef jobs
private chef jobs
chef job
chef job description
personal chef jobs
pastry chef job
executive chef job
sous chef job description
executive chef job description
private chef job
personal chef job

Barnes emphasizes that ChefCrossing is committed to finding new sources of jobs daily.

“There is an astonishing number of chef job openings out there. We want to find them all,” he says.

ChefCrossing charges job seekers $29.95 to look at its chef job-opening research. However, it is currently offering a free, seven-day trial to allow users to familiarize themselves with the service. The free trial is available to everyone on the site’s registration page for a limited time.
