Meet Industry Experts from General Mills, Chipotle, Sodexo & MoreYou never know who might make a difference in your career. That’s why JWU regularly brings industry experts from business, culinary, hospitality and technology to campus to share their expertise directly with students.
Hotel and food service leaders from General Mills, Chipotle, Sodexo, Marriott and Kimpton Hotels recently shared their keys to career success: “Network.” “Set goals.” “Target companies you admire.”
“Look at your career as a picture window,” said moderator Gerry Fernandez '86, president of the Multicultural Foodservice & Hospitality Alliance (MFHA). “Don’t narrow your vision about what your career can be.”
“The key to my success is being happy, and believing in the company,” said Chipotle’s Mike Drapikowski '10. “I want to go to work every single day.”
