CHOPS Jobs is a career website connecting restaurants with job seekers in the fields of food, beverage, and hospitality and will launch at the end of the month. The site, www.chopsjobs.com, has already garnered immediate interest, and has been endorsed by acclaimed industry professionals including Chef Ross Pangilinan of Mix Mix Kitchen Bar, Chef Noah Blöm of ARC, Restaurant Marín and the Guild Club, and Laurent Vrignaud of Moulin.
Created by recruiting veteran, Stacy Sato, CHOPS Jobs is the first-of-its-kind resource in Orange County, providing not only specialized job listings, but valuable resources for culinary job seekers and employers alike.
In addition to offering specialized job opportunities in Orange County, the CHOPS Jobs website offers:
Interactive content for employers and job seekers;
Articles providing unique insight from industry professionals and tips for job seekers;
And resources including in-depth industry statistics, upcoming networking events and job fairs, as well as links to additional online resources for culinary and hospitality workers.
CHOPS Jobs is rising to meet the state’s growing need for hospitality professionals. A 2017 National Restaurant Association study concluded that restaurant and foodservice jobs account for 10% of California’s employment. The state’s 70,000 restaurants employ a total of 1,718,000 people across the state. That number is projected to jump another 10.6%, by 2027, bringing hospitality employment to 1.9 million.
Drawing upon her 25 years of experience in the employment and education industries, Sato believes CHOPS Jobs provides a solution to the hospitality industry’s insatiable need for front-of-house and back-of-house staff. Her most recent role as co-owner of CulinaryLab in Tustin inspired Sato to launch CHOPS Jobs.
Sato’s desire to connect people with the careers of their dreams began long before she launched CHOPS Jobs. In 1999, Sato founded Career Giant, the first local career website for job seekers and employers in Hawaii. Regarded as Hawaii’s employment expert, she simultaneously wrote career articles for the Honolulu Advertiser, organized large statewide job fairs, and conducted employment seminars at career events. In 2000, Sato was recognized for her success and was honored as one of the “Top Forty Under 40” leaders in the state of Hawaii.
To celebrate their launch, CHOPS Jobs will be offering a special “Buy One Month, Get One Free” free offer to first time customers for the next 30 days. More information about CHOPS Jobs can be found online at www.chopsjobs.com.
