Cultivating your Career
The program Cultivating your Career has been developed by the Career Center in collaboration with the American consultancy firm CorpTalk, starting in the Autumn 2015.
It is an innovative approach to the professional growth of our students and graduates particularly focused on the uniqueness of every single student, from the very beginning The University of Gastronomic Sciences thanks to its holistic and multidisciplinary approach, therefore, tries to add value to the peculiarities of its Alumni, peculiarities that will then have a huge impact on the way in which every student will choose to define his own interpretation of the gastronome.
Since the earliest years, the most frequently asked question from the future students has been “What am I going to do after graduation?”, it is very hard to give a complete answer to this question, because every student who studied in Pollenzo has a different story and a different journey to make and so the range of careers undertaken covers almost the complete spectrum of gastronomy, from farmers to journalists, from brand managers to professors, chefs, buyers, coffee tasters, and consultants.
It is an answer that is already in the hands of every student, and the Cultivating your Career program has been thought in order to help the students to find this answer.
The program, available for all the Alumni registered on this platform, is divided into groups of modules and tools that the students can use on his own or with the supervision of the Career Center which time after time will suggest the most useful tools for the specific student needs.
During the academic year, the Career Center sets a number of classes to work with the students on the program, the decision to deepen these issues in one-on-one meetings is then left to the student willing.
