Offering a combination of variety, creativity and the satisfaction of hands-on accomplishment, food service is a unique career option. Chefs prepare delicate pastries through entire meals with their skill and imagination, and food and beverage managers oversee day-to-day operations to ensure profit and customer service levels stay high.

The CIM helped me get every job that I've had so far and it helped me get into Hell's Kitchen and get a job in Vegas and it is because of them that I'm where I am.
