Alex Wolf, Director of Restaurants of Restaurants by Jean-Georges in New York City, shares his career timeline and advice for up-and-coming talent.
“I know now the vision of your career never matches what the reality becomes. I envisioned the position I now hold as my dream position, but never thought the path I started on would take me here. Most people need to learn to trust the process. Allow for your career to veer in different directions than you had originally planned.„
