Local Students Explore Culinary-Related Careers at Universal Orlando and Beyond


As part of an ongoing partnership between Universal Orlando Resort and Orange County Public Schools, more than 100 students from Colonial and Wekiva High Schools will visit Universal Orlando on Tuesday, March 10 for a hands-on look at the various culinary-related careers that exist within the resort.

Students will see firsthand how the Universal Orlando culinary team creates some of the world’s finest dining experiences by participating in detailed, engaging educational sessions – from purchasing and receiving, to cooking, to serving – and everything in between. Members of the Universal Orlando human resources team will also be on hand to assist students with resume and interview preparation.

Universal Orlando offers other educational experiences through the Universal Studies program, allowing students to participate in in-depth discussions about the science behind ride design, what it takes to create an effective marketing campaign and more. Students focused on the performing arts can participate in the STARS Performance Program featuring marching, stage and workshop opportunities, where they will learn the art of Foley, how to ace dance auditions, and even how to score an actual movie scene.
