  • Career Opportunties


     

    Every parent wants their son or daughter to gain the knowledge, confidence, and connections necessary to move successfully into the career that's absolutely right for him or her. The CIA can make it happen.

    The 300-plus companies that recruit on campus each year, the industry giants who support our academic programs and buildings, the CIA alumni who hire their follow graduates—they all recognize that CIA students have what it takes to help their organizations succeed. That's why our graduates already have a foot in the door by the time they enter the industry.

    And there's more good news—there are plenty of opportunities out there for an enriching career in foodservice. U.S. restaurant sales top $600 billion, serving more than 130 million guests each day. Plus, the nation's second largest private-sector employer just keeps getting better—restaurant jobs are projected to grow by 10% by 2021.

    "The CIA student is much better schooled about what is and is not quality. They come with more knowledge and are noticeably more professional than those from other schools." Andrew Roenbeck '84, Executive Chef
