Flexible Internship and Networking Opportunities

Most private culinary schools require students to complete a 3-month, unpaid internship in a culinary establishment before a student can graduate. We understand that today’s college student has many personal demands and responsibilities from family, work, financial obligations, etc., so our internship is designed with your busy lifestyle in mind. Once enrolled in The Culinary Institute, students can immediately start working on required internship hours and take the entire time enrolled in the program to complete – all while doing it at a place of employment so you’re getting paid simultaneously. Should students need to volunteer at local establishments to obtain internship hours, the networking and future employment opportunities that are created under such conditions are immeasurable.
