Yesterday was the Food Service & Hospitality Career Fair. Even though the Career Fair was targeted towards Upperclassmen and Sophomores looking for an internship, the fair was a perfect opportunity to reach out to employees and get general information about what it is actually like to work in the field. I personally was very interested in the Culinary Nutrition session of the Fair which included organizations such as the Mina Group Restaurant - which wasn’t really nutrition but was very interested in social media and food writers talking about her restaurants, Wildtree - the representative, Research Chef Geisler, was actually a research chef graduate, Brinker International - Which the research chef creates products for large franchises such as Chili’s.
There was hundreds of great companies there which created thousands of opportunities for students of all majors. I can’t wait to come back again next year when I’m actually trying to land an internship.
