               important thing they look for when hiring, the response is almost always
               experience. attending Johnson & Wales, i’ve had numerous opportunities
               to gain that experience through directed work experiences, study abroad
               programs and internships. Participating in an internship is a great learning
               experience. it puts you in a real working setting, letting you show what you’ve
               learned and also helping you recognize where you may need to improve in
