The Culinary Institute of America

  • Career Services Office

    A CIA education offers students unparalleled career opportunities. The Career Services Office is located at the main campus in Hyde Park, NY. The director of career services maintains an office at the Greystone campus and schedules regular visits to campus to assist students throughout their career decision-making process. A variety of resources and activities are available to help assess career potential, stay abreast of industry trends and requirements, develop a knowledge of job opportunities, and set employment goals.

    The externship course in the AOS degree program is an integral part of the curriculum and a significant opportunity for students. This direct industry experience enables them to apply new skills and further clarify career goals.

    For assistance in acquiring permanent positions, students may access online job listings to learn of employment opportunities, career paths, and organization characteristics. CIA students can use a web-based system, Experience, to research opportunities. The system offers links to the websites of employers, enabling students to more fully research job opportunities with particular organizations.

    Whether seeking an externship site or fulltime employment after graduation, you are strongly encouraged to have early and ongoing involvement with the activities and resources the Career Services Office provides to make well-informed externship and employment decisions. While the college vigorously pursues job placement for graduates, placement is not guaranteed.
