A paid internship in the USA is just like having a full time job. You are paid a minimum wage during the stage and have a pre-determined job description and specific responsibilities in the kitchen. This allows you to work in a structured kitchen operation. Your salary allows you to support your stay in the USA and even put some savings aside. You can improve your English skills, learn about the American way in the kitchen and gain a new perspective and vision. Upon your return to Turkey, you jump start your career with a significant job experience under your belt. You can even find a chance of working with the foreign executive chefs in the country. Your spouse or fiancee can also obtain an American visa through this program.
