Our relationship with Walt Disney World

Our Relationship with Disney

One of the most lucrative partnerships we’ve established, our relationship with Walt Disney World sprouts a number of externship and job opportunities for our students and graduates. Yearly visits by one of Disney’s chef recruiters, Pauli Milotte, allow our students the ability to interview on-campus for resort positions.

With over 140 food establishments within the Walt Disney World confines and over 400 culinary externship opportunities per year, employment opportunities with this well-known organization are a good way to kick off your career.

"In January of 2016, I decided I wanted to become a chef on a Disney cruise line."

" I came to the realization that you have to have a degree in culinary arts to achieve that. I decided to attend school at Auguste Escoffier School of Culinary Arts and, little did I know, this school would set me up to work with Disney. Escoffier has set me up to reach for my dreams and, thanks to Career Services. I have accepted an internship with The Disney Culinary Program. It has definitely been a true blessing."

"One of the best parts about Auguste Escoffier School of Culinary Arts is they help you along the way to find externships."

" I went to Career Services and told them I wanted to work at Il Posto and they basically set it up for me. I went in and talked to the Sous Chef and then started going in two days a week to learn prior to my externship. At the end of my externship, my Sous Chef said that if I gave him a few weeks, he could probably get me a job. The reason I got the job is that, yes, they liked me, I worked hard, but also that one of the other Sous Chefs was leaving for another restaurant. So the timing worked out. You have to be patient in small kitchens and you have to let them know how you feel, too."
