Abstract

In this research conducted on 15 female students receiving culinary education, data was collected using a semi-structured interview form in order to understand the educational processes and career goals of culinary students in more detail. According to the research results, it is seen that the majority of students aim to work in a professional business environment after completing their culinary education. However, problems such as gender inequality and wage inequality in this sector are thought to increase insecurity in the sector. These factors shape students' negative views about the sector, causing lack of motivation and job dissatisfaction. This research has shown that harsh working conditions have negative effects on quality of life and job satisfaction. This situation leads to increased concerns and despair about the sector while students determine their career goals. The existence of negative practices, especially nepotism (nepotism), causes students to distrust the sector and reduce their desire to pursue a career in the sector. This research constitutes an important resource for understanding the experiences and opinions of students in the culinary industry.
