As The Washington Post recently pointed out, restaurants across the country face an ongoing problem: they aren’t receiving enough applications to fill vacant positions in their kitchens. Though restaurant-goers may be unaware of this issue, those in the restaurant industry have expressed concern and are looking for support. Private sector institutions are doing their part to meet these restaurant needs, as they lead the way in graduating job-ready culinary talent.
By a significant margin, private sector institutions award the majority of culinary credentials. Without private sector institutions’ vital contribution to the culinary sector, the number of qualified applications restaurants receive would fall considerably – they are equipping students with the skills they need to find culinary jobs while also helping employers find skilled employees.
