Jon and Kate Gosselin have experienced their fair share of changes since their departure from reality television. Kate is on a mission to sell cookbooks…and it looks like Jon is also trying to get in on a culinary profession. The former Jon & Kate Plus 8 star recently obtained employment at the Black Dog Cafe — and he absolutely loves his job!
Last month, we learned that Jon Gosselin had successfully transitioned to a simple life of waiting tables and living in a cabin. Now, based on a recent interview with Penn Live, we can confirm that Jon is still ecstatic about his latest career path. As the maitre d’ for the Black Dog Cafe, the former reality dad spends his days taking orders, working in the occasional lesson on sushi preparation and general management. Jon is also responsible for marketing, using his famous name to attract new visitors to the dining estabslihment.
Although his duties are, on occasion, humble in nature, Jon says he really enjoys completing an honest day’s work. “No matter what’s going on in your life, when I come to work – like, I’m exhausted now because I’m working double shifts, but when I come to work everyone’s happy.”
If things don’t work out at the restaurant, Jon always has his fall back career in IT. But the former reality star says that he’d prefer to stay away from that career path, as he much prefers working in the culinary field. “I know [IT] so well because I did it for 15 years…I still build apps and all that stuff. I always did, even when on television, just to keep up on my certifications and everything. But I really like this [working at the restaurant] and I’m really devoted to doing this.”
We’re glad to see Jon Gosselin succeeding outside of the realm of reality television! What do you think of his new career? Sound off in the comments section below!
