Internship Program in Culinary Arts
In addition to classroom and lab experience, Suffolk's Culinary Arts, Baking and Pastry, and Hotel and Resort Management Programs include an Internship requirement to fully prepare students for entry into these fields.
The internship program is student-centered and based on the individual career goals of each student. With faculty guidance and with the supervision of a vetted industry mentor, student interns work 200 hours in a commercial establishment side-by-side with industry professionals to hone their skills. Students maintain daily work logs and receive feedback and formal evaluations from their workplace mentors. For many Suffolk students the internship is an entry point into a permanent employment position at the end of their program.
Our interns are sought out by some of the top restaurants, country clubs, and catering facilities on Long Island. Hotel and Resort Management students may intern in a myriad of lodging establishments on Long Island, including internationally branded hotel chains, independent exclusive inns and full-service, luxury lodging establishments.
