Why Hire Work Options' Graduates?

Relationship-First Model

Work Options provides post-graduation support for graduates for the first 12-months after training completion; we are there to help BOTH graduates and employers navigate or resolve workplace challenges.

Graduates are Driven

Our number one criterion for students is a drive to gain and maintain employment in the culinary industry. As a result, graduates are highly motivated to maintain a job post-graduation. Graduates of our program are reliable, consistent, and prepared to show up and work.

Technical Skills

Students in our program learn job-ready skills such as knife skills, culinary techniques, time management and teamwork. All students graduate with industry-recognized certificates, including ServSafe Food Handlers certification. Hiring Work Options’ graduates means that employers spend less time training employees on the front end. 

Soft Skills

Graduates learn critical problem-solving skills as they work to resolve their own barriers to employment. Practicing their culinary and soft skills while working in Work Options’ busy commercial kitchen also ensures that graduates are collaborative, good communicators and consistently perform well, even under pressure.

Brand Alignment

Hiring Work Options’ graduates show a commitment to our community and to diversity in the workforce. It is a story that we can help you tell and amplify to elevate your brand with consumers who are driven to shop responsibly.
