I'm also very curious about what Natural Chef's are currently doing for work? AND Nutrition Educators?
I completed the Nutrition Educator course last year. I haven't directly tried to seek work as a Nutrition Educator, but this is primarily because I just don't think the demand is out there. From everyone who I have spoken to who completed the course, this is the impression I have gotten. That it is, in this economic climate, VERY difficult to find clients unless you have an established practice.... which is obviously not the case for new grads.
People are interested in your studies - and very interested in receiving help for free
- but obviously this is not the goal.
I am NOT saying this as a criticism of Bauman College AT ALL. I loved learning with Bauman, I love the programme and I think the approach to nutrition is unique, intelligent and helpful. BUT I don't feel that graduates of the programme (even the NC) are currently all that marketable... those who have jobs in this field seems to be the exception rather than the rule. I would LOVE to be proven wrong so for any new graduates who have found work placements or are able to make a living a this point I would love to hear about how they did it?
I'm currently about to enroll on the Natural Chef course because I believe it to be a bit more vocational and likely to be of assistance. Having said that I'm also prepared to go back to my office job, and do some cheffing on the side, because Im not even certain the Natural Chef course would be that marketable.
SO I'd love to hear from any certified Natural Chef's about what they are up to now?
Again, please don't take this as crit of Bauman. I love the place or I wouldnt be returning to study. BUT from my experience talking to other students I do feel like some of the responses regarding the ease of employment after study in this forum, are a bit misleading... especially to people who may be putting all their savings into study and relying on it as a mechanism for a career?
