ICE Career Fairs and Recruitment Events

Make the Connections to Launch Your Culinary Career

“What do I want my career to look like?”

At some point in every student’s educational journey, the question of future plans is bound to arise.

Luckily, ICE students have a wealth of guidance available to them. We pride ourselves on maintaining a robust career services department as part of our career resources at our New York City and Los Angeles campuses, which serve both our on-campus and online student bodies.

ICE's career advisors are experienced professionals that provide students with personal mentoring and professional guidance, and most importantly, leverage ICE’s extensive network of contacts to open doors to the industry’s leading employers. 

ICE Career Fairs

For students interested in exploring a variety of opportunities in hospitality and food careers, our New York campus hosts biannual ICE career fairs, where students and alumni can meet with recruiters from celebrated restaurant groups, successful alumni chefs and entrepreneurs and leaders in the hospitality job market. ICE's Los Angeles campus also hosts frequent recruiting events with leading industry employers both in-person on campus and online.

These events are part of the larger ICE career resources, and are not only an exceptional opportunity to learn about specific job openings, they are also the perfect time to connect with other alumni and build a network of personal contacts. Join us at an upcoming ICE Career Fair or recruitment event to discover exciting externship placement and job opportunities in the food and hospitality industries.

Through our extensive network of industry contacts and alumni, we place hundreds of graduates annually in dining and hospitality positions across the country. There has never been a better time to find your culinary voice at ICE.

Employers speak with a student at an ICE career fair

"I look for smiles, personality, excitement, enthusiasm — and ICE students have those qualities. Our externs from ICE have been excellent and Spice Market always looks to hire as many students out of externship as possible." - Anthony Ricco; Culinary Arts graduate, Executive Chef, The William Vale Hotel (formerly Chef de Cuisine, Spice Market)
