Cooks and Chefs

Overall, employment of chefs and head cooks is projected to grow 5 percent from 2012 to 2022, slower than the average for all occupations, according to the U.S. Department of Labor. Other cooks and food preparation workers will experience faster growth of 10 percent during the same time period. While some areas (such as institution and cafeteria chefs and cooks) may not see much growth in number of new jobs, turnover rates are high and the need to find replacement cooks and chefs will provide some job opportunities.
