PLACEMENT AND ORIENTATION FOR NEW GRADUATES IN TOURISM AND HOSPITALITY (3 days)
Many recent graduates come out of school with a clear focus on what to do. But the reality is, there are many more who do not know what to do next, and still others, who somehow veer off their initial course to “do other things.” Either way, as a young graduate or job seeker, you will need experienced guidance and strategies to instil the confidence and direction so necessary in today’s highly competitive job market.
Our experience in the Tourism and Hospitality industry, and our work with recent graduates seeking to secure jobs in this lucrative field, reveals not only a lack of confidence, but also a great disconnect between industry requirements and their levels of appreciation. In fact, there are many instances where job seekers actually lack the practical appreciation of the careers in the very industry that they wish to enter.
This course is designed to break the barriers preventing successful entry and participation in the Tourism and Hospitality industry, and to provide you – the recent graduate or job seeker – with the skills to think and act in ways that will greatly enhance your chances of a successful and rewarding career in this sector.
