Right well somebody jobs in today's economy do require some education but it does have to be the traditional education we all think up.
Where it's got to be about -- master's degree.

Now is the restaurant industry -- Yeah -- did -- restaurant industry is booming the the US economy we spend about 600 billion dollars.
Eating out every year -- it's grown even with the recession has grown dramatically there's about thirteen million people.
In that area.
And it's getting bigger every day but I think this gives people a chance to go in try something for very small amount of money our programs are about.
5000 dollars able to learn everything that they need in the can do it from the comfort of their home yet so I think it's it's getting people to work very quickly.
The restaurant industry is expected to add nearly one and a half million jobs over the next decade so it is pretty astonishing.
But not -- the obvious question can you learn how to cook without seeing spelling and touching the -- Absolutely.
You know you have -- -- of the stove and you've got -- -- you got a computer but we we've discovered some really great technology along with.
Our our celebrity chefs are able to to lecture both real time and end this synchronous and asynchronous.
And were also able to give people hundreds of recipes methods and techniques.
On -- video sites but were also able to do assessments every student is assigned a -- -- -- mentor.
So this is somebody that would actually work along with the student and be available to talk with them so it's -- right balance of technology.
Content -- curriculum and also the ability to interface with with real people.
Have even conference call -- courses.
Well we go about a long way our our company does we've dealt with culinary four.
Many many years probably around twenty years and we've also -- -- dealt with the online area of our team has for probably about the last fifteen years and so we're just launching this program now this did this is the first in the world never been done.
But we've done a lot of market research we've tested it on on students we've tested on shelves we've tested on people that would hire these students.
And we're very satisfied with the other product.
We launches a week ago and we've gotten.
Just rave reviews from our students and started the video program congratulations so where -- -- -- and go to ticket.
Sure so did that well they can video start by going on this -- eight.
Online dot com right -- on that wolf and they can learn more about but they can started immediately we can start every single day they get their toolkit.
In one -- two days in the ready to begin.
There are signs that -- after -- good.
It's up 5000 dollars for my own -- figure a tip that it's about it's about it about 250 hours.
And but a fraction of the cost of what a culinary program would be you know available that.
I had culinary school -- could be 50000 dollar.
-- allow it is that -- and geez yeah.
Elena please you know if you go you spend your 5000 dollars or if you -- offense is -- spent there 50000 dollars I guess maybe you would be promised job I'm curious.
To understand why the restaurant business is booming right now is it not all.
Types of restaurants or maybe at the lower end ones right now because people are kind of -- that while it's a little bit more.
Why would tell you it's it's it's all areas -- being you look at anywhere for McDonald's.
Their you know their sales and fast food places a boom but I would tell you it's it's really on the higher end where people are going out it's a major source of entertainment.
With society that they love going out to eat go into any bar restaurant on -- typical Friday Saturday night you're lucky to get a seat.
Even doing during the -- I think he'd -- economy and that area's very much Barack right -- people again are looking at spending their dollars not an entertainment.
Yeah and according to the National Restaurant Association.
The restaurant industry is projected to employ nearly thirteen million people.
-- nearly 10% of the US work force and that's for this year so.
That print that that's of those numbers and then also 80% of restaurant owners first job in the industry -- -- in an entry level position.
So I guess maybe he'll get that dream job right away you know that you could work your way up and then -- -- fresh front right.
Well absolutely people -- this was all types of goals -- -- about accessibility it's about affordability but.
People coming into -- wanting to work in the restaurant business mean kind of the dirty little secret is whatever school you go to when you come out.
You're gonna work for that ten or 120 dollars an hour.
You're gonna work on the line I'm -- you -- do it at an affordable cost be able to get out.
You'll be able -- -- to pay off your loans or where finance in some way in going get a job most people wanna learn their trade.
In in two to three years and they're able to go out probably do something a lot more significant.
Either on their own or two to work with somebody else yet it is just a wonderful area.
It's like that.
In the -- and business do I remember I know respondents the in the news industry have joins that you don't need to go to school for it you can learn on the job is get that internship get that entry level doesn't pick up the pieces.
-- -- -- you don't have to dedicate your entire expensive college graduate school career for journalism.
