Learning is a lifelong journey. Despite the fact that you’ve just finished 4–8 years of college, your learning is just beginning anew with the first day of your new job. During the interview process, students invariably ask prospective employers about opportunities to continue learning in their new roles as employees. Students receive as many varied answers as they have interviews. New hires will soon understand that the main purpose of most food-related enterprises is to make a profit from the goods or services the company manufacture and/or sell. The enterprise is not in the business to specifically train or educate students. Education of students is left to the many high-quality colleges and universities across the country. Having said that, there are many opportunities to continue learning while being employed by the food industry.
