|Varied Opportunities Offered for Culinary and Hospitality Careers at Sodexo
By Helen Winter, Senior Recruiter
Whether you're a student pursuing hospitality and culinary studies, a recent graduate or an experienced culinary professional, Sodexo offers a number of opportunities to grow your career beyond the typical hotel or restaurant environment.
With opportunities in schools, hospitals, senior living facilities, government and corporate accounts, Sodexo chefs experience an unparalleled quality of life.
For example, in our campus and schools segment, our chefs have the flexibility of the school calendar year, which provides time for them to pursue many culinary interests and development opportunities during the summer and other down times.
One great example is Chef Ernest Servantes from Texas Lutheran College. Last year, he competed on the Food Network's Chopped Grill Masters show and won the competition!
What is it like to work for Sodexo? Hear what some of our employees have to say:
For hospitality students and educators, we collaborate with industry partners Marriott and Hyatt to offer the HIRE Reception at the National Restaurant Association Show held in Chicago each spring. This year, more than 200 college juniors, seniors and educators learned about working for Sodexo and heard from Tracey Hoffman, Sodexo Senior Recruiter, who shared information about Sodexo serving on Marine Corps bases, an area the students had not previously considered.
In July, Sodexo will participate in the American Culinary Federation National Convention in Las Vegas – another great opportunity to meet Sodexo recruiters and learn more about working for our company.
Even if you can't attend a live event, you can still network with Sodexo and learn about our amazing careers in culinary and hospitality.
Working in the hospitality field for Sodexo brings an exceptional quality of life for our employees.
