Working in gastronomy, often ends up being a nightmare because the only way to find work is going to each restaurant or cafeteria to leave the curriculum, but unfortunately that does not ensure anything.
Recently, Fudlink was launched, the new Chilean web platform to help restaurants find employees and applicants to get a job and already has 45 registered companies, 600 candidates, 130 job vacancies and more than 10 thousand followers. on Facebook.
The platform is free and you just have to create a profile with the position you are looking for, your experience and you can even upload a presentation video.
The idea was born after Juan Carlos Garcés (30), completed a Master in Food and Beverage that he did during 2016 in Milan, Italy, and knew the weaknesses of the restaurants, bars and cafeterias services.
“I visited many restaurants in Italy and Europe to understand the logic of the service, the most common thing I saw was that people work in the industry because they are passionate about it and also that the turnover is very high,” he says.
When he returned to Chile, he associated with a colleague he had in Italy, a Peruvian national, along with whom they established a market study to find out if this type of practice was repeated in Chile and then decided to launch Fudlink.
“We saw that people looking for employment in the industry use employment portals and social networks, but a very large percentage invests a lot of time personally leaving their CVs in the gastronomic poles of the city and we discovered that many restaurants had piles of cv then We offer to decrease your time in the search and selection of personnel,” he says.
In Fudlink you can find vacancies for various types of jobs in the kitchen industry, from cupbearer to master chef or executive chef.
For now, it works only in Santiago, but they hope to expand soon throughout Chile and later to Peru and Colombia, two of the Latin American countries with the largest number of operational restaurants.
