I am a dietetic intern with Sodexo at the distanced campus. I choose Sodexo’s program because of their many amazing accounts. I knew that I wanted to intern at a non-clinical site for food service and that Sodexo has many non-clinical food service accounts. I also wanted my clinical rotation to be at a large hospital and Sodexo was able to offer that. I have had such a positive experience with Sodexo so far and hope to pursue a job with Sodexo as a corporate wellness RD upon completion.
FOOD SERVICE MANAGEMENT
I completed my food service management rotation at Glasco Smith Klein (GSK) in Durham, NC. Before this rotation, my only food service experience was in hospitals. I learned that this account was more motivated by profit than a hospital, so they had to constantly think of ways to entice their customers to buy more.
I enjoyed creating my theme meal and addressing the need for healthy and interesting food. I lead the food staff in making a Korean Bibimbap Bowl which they had never made before. I increased their sales by 150% and many customers were very pleased to see that the cafe was offering a new and healthy meal.
