I am an International prospective student of FCI from Asia who is intending to pursue a career as a Pastry Chef.
Their Career Pastry Arts program seems to be intensive and efficient.
One of the reason I would like to go all the way to New York and achieve this education is because I would like to get long term apprenticeship and possible full time job overseas in America or Europe for few years before I settled back in my hometown.
Based on my research and observations, most of the successful chefs who graduated from the institute are Americans or people who already lived there.
However, I have been looking for sometime, but there are no news anywhere about international students post graduation life at FCI, especially from Asia.
I would like to kindly ask for opinion, inputs and advice from everyone. What are the opportunities like for international students ? Does anybody knows if any of them get a secure position in a great place after graduation ? What are the percentage of foreigners working in US culinary and pastry industry ?
Thank you very much in advance and any comments or advice are going to be greatly appreciated.
Have a wonderful day !
