Up to 60 percent of students studying Gastronomy at the Tenancingo University Center of the Autonomous University of the State of Mexico (UAEM) receive job offers in the companies where they carry out their internships, said course coordinator Elizabeth Getsemaní Cruz Jouháyerk.
In an interview, Cruz Jouháyerk said that during their internships, university students experience real work. UAEM Tenancingo University Center gastronomy students work at food and beverage services companies, such as hotels, restaurants, butchers, chocolatiers and even public education institutions, where they conduct training on healthy eating habits in a school setting.
Some students worked in Chile, the United States, Quintana Roo, Guerrero, Guanajuato and Mexico City. Cruz Jouháyerk said that these professional practices frequently lead to first jobs for recent graduates.
She also stressed that young people have the opportunity to put into practice what they have learned during the four and a half years of their university education.
