On-Campus Interviews

Talk to employers and their representatives in person right on campus! Culinary employers from nearby and from food-destination cities like Philadelphia and New York have found employees at the annual college-wide career day. Just about each week in spring a different culinary employer visits, for an exclusive day of interviewing on campus.



To prepare for a real-world culinary job, third and fourth semester students in the two-year program spends at least 400 hours in an externship. The experience can lead to job opportunities as well as lifelong professional friendships. As a student, you get to determine where to do your externship -- subject to Academy approval, of course. Academy staff will gladly work with you if you need help finding a situation.
