When Church’s Chicken,
one of the world’s leading chicken
chains, is looking for young talent, it’s
looking at students fromTAMIU’s
A. R. Sanchez, Jr. School of Business.
The fast food giant regularly offers
corporate internship opportunities
toTAMIU students.
TAMIU interns were flown to Atlanta headquarters
this year and provided room and board while garnering
world-class corporate experience.The internship, informally
known as “The Newman Internship with Church’s Chicken,”
serves as a pipeline for restaurant industry exploration, and
also showcases the ability of TAMIU students.
The internships take place over a four-week term and,
in some cases, result in full-time career opportunities within
Church’s Chicken.
“The goal is to place at least one intern with a full-time
job offer within Church’s Chicken,” said David T. Newman, a
Laredo-based Church’s Chicken franchisee with operations
in two states.
“The idea is for students to realize that they could
have a career in the restaurant industry and utilize their
business degree in an industry they previously may have
not considered. I want them to open their eyes and see
that there are plenty of opportunities within the corporate
world, with brands like Church’s, ” Newman added.
