Types of chef networks
Chef networks come in different forms. A cooking network starts among the chefs in the team in the cuisine. Cooking schools that offer alumni network are another way in which chefs can keep in touch with each other and share experiences working as a cook. Chef associations of each country provide a regional chef network. Cooking networks are also created in social media. However, there is a mixture of private information of chefs and professional publications of chefs, so that the addressees of information of cooks overlap. Well-known career networks are another way to build a cooking network. Disadvantages of these organizations are their offers of all professional groups. These career networks could therefore be referred to as “department store career networks”. Professions specific career networks, such as Cook Concern, the career network exclusive for professional chefs, offers an even closer range of users. Thus, professional groups offer specific networks such as Cook Concern: a closed professional group, purely professional communication among the chefs and an international orientation beyond national borders.

Cooks can create their cooking profile, document their career steps, add new stages in the curriculum vitae, present their own recipes and creations and use them as needed for a passive or active application to another job as a chef. If necessary, the latest job offers can be sent from a desired filter via a notification function via email.
