Tips for Entry

Find a part-time, summer, or volunteer job in the food-service department of a hospital or other health care organization to gain experience and learn more about this career.

Working part time or summers in a nonhospital food service or restaurant kitchen is another method to gain experience and learn about work in the nutrition field.

Ask your health teacher or school counselor to help you arrange to meet with a dietitian or dietetic technician for an information interview.

Volunteer in your school's cafeteria, helping set up for lunches and clean up at the end of lunch, to gain experience working in an institutional food-service environment.
