I’ve included a link to a story that is a very good piece on the challenge that recent graduates from culinary programs face when trying to enter the hospitality workforce. This challenge is in large part due to several things that occur before the student even enrolls all the way through graduation. I could write an entire book on this topic but for the most part it deals with the fact that culinary schools are costly and quite honestly don’t always prepare students adequately. There are only a few schools that are really preparing students for the reality of the industry. I encourage all chefs and/or possible future chefs to read this piece.
