Culinary Arts Students Get a Taste of the Good Life
Learn about food, learn to cook. Sounds like a simple recipe for success in the food industry.
But those who make a living in culinary arts -- and those in the culinary arts program at Gwinnett Tech -- know that the actual art of cooking is only one ingredient to a successful career in this field.
Because the food industry deals with the needs of the public, professionals in the field have constant interaction with their customers -- requiring maximum flexibility and problem-solving capabilities. It is a people-oriented profession that calls for effective communication skills and a knack for interpersonal relationships, as well as finesse in the kitchen.
Gwinnett Tech's programs in culinary arts combine both the practical aspects of the profession with the applicable skills needed to enjoy a top-shelf career.
Whether working as a sous chef, a food buyer, a food services manager or a restaurant owner, a career in the culinary arts field provides variety and opportunities. Repetition and staid schedules are the exception in this industry. Every new day brings new challenges.
And those up for the challenge can reap the rewards. It's anticipated that the next decade will bring numerous and prosperous opportunities in this growing field, which will only be bolstered through the growing travel and tourism industry, of which hotels and restaurants are a vital sector.
If you can't stand the heat -- stay out of the kitchen. But if you're ready to get your career simmering, enroll today in Gwinnett Tech's culinary arts program. Choose from a degree or diploma in culinary arts, or get started with the prep cook certificate. Call us at 770-962-7580 or apply online.
