The Foundation desires to create internship opportunities that will give the foodservice industry access to promising young people pursuing careers in foodservice. The workforce can be an intimidating place for a new foodservice graduate --give one of our students the chance to work for you and in return, gain a qualified intern for your company. 

How to Facilitate the University-Student Relationship

IFMA has created relationships with a national list of accredited colleges and universities and we want to help you facilitate a collaboration in order to:

  • Help create a contact to the university/college of your choice.
  • Assist in choosing the right student for your company needs.

If your company is interested in working with the Foundation to hire an intern from our program, please have your Human Resources department email Jennifer Tarulis.
