Every program at our school includes career preparation sessions to review hiring procedures, to help you write your resume and to improve your employment interview skills. When you graduate, the Career Services Office helps match you with potential employers, many of whom call on us throughout the year to fill available staff openings.  Although we cannot guarantee employment, we are committed to securing positions for our student population. Placement assistance is available either when you graduate or at any future time you wish to use this service.
 

HOW DO I HAVE TO DRESS FOR CLASS?

Students must appear neat and well groomed at all times. The Culinary Academy provides all student with the required uniform including jackets, pants, shoes, aprons and hats. Long hair must be pinned up under the hat. Proper hygiene is particularly important in cooking classes. Students are responsible for keeping themselves and their uniforms clean at all times. Fingernails must be trimmed to a moderate length and must be well manicured. The use of nail polish is not permitted. Men with beards and/or mustaches must keep them trimmed. For safety reasons, only necessary equipment and materials may be brought into the kitchens. Watches and wedding rings are the only items of jewelry that may be worn.
