Employment Outlook

According to the U.S. Department of Labor's Occupational Outlook Handbook, "Employment of cooks is projected to grow 10 percent from 2012 to 2022, about as fast as the average for all occupations. Job opportunities will result from the combination of employment growth and the need to replace workers who leave the occupation. Those seeking full-time positions at upscale restaurants, where the pay is often greater, should expect strong competition for jobs."
