Ocean Reef Club at 2015 Sponsor FairEvery class day from March 2 through March 27, 2015, IUP culinary students enjoyed site presentations and job interview opportunities with chefs and human resource representatives from some of the most prestigious employers in the nation.

Each of the employers scheduled a full day at the Academy of Culinary Arts promoting employment opportunities at their properties and interviewing students for externship positions.

Culinary students interviewed with multiple employers and were enthusiastic about their experience. 

“I think it’s a really great opportunity to learn about different sites that I would not have otherwise known about, and they actually come here and want to interview me.”
—Connor Huff, Kittanning, Pa. 

“It says a lot about the program. We don’t have to worry about finishing school and not having a job.”
—Adeline Maio, Glenmoore, Pa.

“You won’t find this at any other school. They want to help you find a job and be successful.”
—Dazhia Clark, McKeesport, Pa.

In addition to learning about the culinary operations, employment requirements, and benefits offered by each employer, culinary students enjoyed hearing the visiting chefs talk about their personal careers and how the decisions they made as young culinarians shaped their professional development.
