For those interested in pursuing a career in food service, the externship is an opportunity for additional training directly on the job. Externships are 6 weeks long, full-time, and generally unpaid. Alternate schedules may be arranged for those who have other commitments.
Students are placed in an externship based on geographic preference, career interest, and ability. Externships begin some time after the course ends that is convenient for the student and the employer.
The typical externship has the student working in the kitchen of a restaurant, café, nursing facility, bakery, caterer, etc. However, a student may also opt to pursue an opportunity that takes them outside of the kitchen, for example with a food stylist or photographer or on the business/management side of a food service establishment.
The externship IS NOT a mandatory part of this course, but it is highly recommended for those who are interested in pursuing a career in the field.
A student may come to us at any time after they graduate for assistance finding a job. We are committed to developing relationships with chefs, restaurateurs, caterers, manufacturers and others in order to serve our students’ ongoing employment needs.
To schedule an appointment to discuss your career or employment needs contact our Dean of Student Affairs Chef Avram Wiseman to schedule an appointment.
