Biannual Career Fairs

The culinary industry is growing! ICC job posts increased by 23% last year and according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, more new full-service restaurants opened from 2004 to 2014 than in any other segment of the industry. “The bureau’s Employment Projections program anticipates about 15% growth through 2025 in the number of Americans working in those restaurant kitchens; nearly 200,000 more chefs will be needed,” states The New York Times, which also acknowledges the ever-expanding range of food careers.

We harness this momentum with a powerful network of food businesses employers—from world-renowned restaurants to media publications—for an ICC-only career fair twice a year.
