No attitude and no ego. Career Paths in High Cuisine╇╇ 29 Despite chefs’ apparent disregard for culinary schools, elite restaurant kitchens are filled with culinary school graduates and externs, and especially from the CIA. Having externs is understandable under any circumstance because they are free labor and fairly risk-free given that they do the most menial work. This is an asset because labor costs constitute a large proportion of restaurant budgets, and more so at the highest-status restaurants because their food is highly labor intensive.

By the same token, a career steady in status could in theory be constituted by short tenures in each job. Nevertheless, chefs at the two extremes of the status hierarchy have the steadiest careers status-wise and long tenures, and chefs at the high-status level, with the steadiest careers in terms of status, have the longest tenures (Figure 5). Because chefs at prestigious middle-status and upper-middle-status restaurants have short tenures, they have worked at more places in total. Individuals advance their careers through moves that are meaningfully oriented to the actions of others in their environment and are largely in line with the sociocultural models of careers salient in that environment.

Culinary programs range widely in terms of social networking opportunities, just as they range in cost of tuition and reputation—three attributes that co-vary. 36 Somewhat further behind are the International Culinary Center, until recently called the French Culinary Institute, and the Institute of Culinary Education, both in New York City. As in any hierarchically structured field, the better culinary schools provide better social networks because they have connections with the best chefs, who make their restaurants available for externships.
