Have a knack for preparing great food? Southern Illinois University Carbondale is hosting a culinary arts career fair next week to fill more than 30 positions on campus for the fall 2023 semester, which starts Aug. 21.

Hiring managers with University Housing and the Student Center and a representative with the university’s Department of Human Resources will be available from 9 a.m. to noon Aug. 15 in Student Center Ballroom B for interviews with interested applicants for culinary worker II and culinary worker III positions. Applicants need at least six months of food service experience. Providing a resume is helpful but not required, although applicants will need to provide their work history to complete an on-site electronic application, said Nicholas Wortman, assistant vice chancellor of human resources at SIU.

SIU employees’ compensation packages include affordable health, dental, vision and life insurance, retirement benefits, generous paid time off, tuition savings for the employee and eligible dependents and opportunities for training and promotion. Culinary employees also receive a free meal per shift, and there are options to have summers off. The required food handling/preparation license is training that will be provided in-house, Wortman said.

For more information, contact SIU Human Resources at hrinfo@siu.edu or 618-536-3369.
