Getting Work Experience before your Dietetic Internship
What kind of positions should I apply for?
Depending upon the state in which you reside there are a multitude of opportunities in school nutrition. Don’t be afraid to apply for a “non-director” position. You will need to learn ALL areas of the operation. Gain work experience as a cook, dishwasher, manager, school nutrition secretary. All these positions will help you learn the ins and outs of school nutrition.
If you cannot find any positions in a school, look towards to food industry. You can apply to work for manufacturers, brokers, or a distributor on the school nutrition side as well.
