I have a resume and did work on campus in the food service atmosphere. I appreciate it if you can write me back with any suggestions or if you have a contact in the New York City or Long Island areas.
Work experience would help you land an internship and decide between working with patients or in food service. Why wouldn’t your food service experience be practical experience as dietitians do a rotation in food service? An internship is on the job training under Academy approved educators. Would suggest you very actively pursue an internship. Get info on where programs are available as the application deadlines are only a few times per year. Read this Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics information on how to join the Academy and for a list of dietetic internships.
Would recommend you contact the New York Dietetic Association. where the contact info is at the bottom of the webpage Their number is on their website. You can also contact the Long Island Dietetic Association. Ask about jobs available to persons with a 4 year nutrition degree without an internship. Best wishes.
