Try preparing different cuisine at home with family and friends. The greater knowledge you have of food and beverages will certainly make you stand-out to employers; and clients.
There is nothing like Networking in any profession. ADL's course will show you how and get you started in this course. Who you know if just as important as what you know that helps you get that job that you have dreamed of.
Good Communication skills are essential. Food and Beverage is part of a service industry and therefore you need to be able to serve and communicate well with people.
Successful professionals are willing to do anything to get started. Don't be too choosy. Waiting on tables or washing dishes is how many professional got.
If you have developed your communication skills well, know your cuisine and are well networked you will definitely have an excellent chance in expanding your career and reaching those goals that you have set, as opposed to someone who just has the qualification, but, lacking communication skills,and the necessary food and beverage knowledge and skills demanded by the industry.
