Hilton Phuket participates in Hilton’s Largest Annual Global Career Initiative
Careers@Hilton Week Showcases the Diverse and Rewarding Career Opportunities in Hospitality for Job Seekers Around the World
PHUKET, Thailand - Hilton Phuket Arcadia Resort & Spa has taken part in Careers@Hilton Week, Hilton’s annual global career event showcasing the many opportunities available in the hospitality industry for young job seekers. During the month of May, Hilton hotels and corporate offices around the globe hosted hundreds of events to inform young people about the exciting and diverse career opportunities in the hospitality industry.
This initiative is a part of Hilton’s Open Doors commitment, which aims to positively impact at least one million young people by 2019 by connecting them to opportunities in the hospitality industry, preparing them to reach their full potential or directly employing them. Hilton is on track to reach this target, with nearly 800,000 young people impacted through global partnerships, talent pipeline and local activations to date.
On May 31, 2018, Hilton Phuket invited the students from Phuket Vocational College with the purpose of providing them with the unique chance to experience what it is like to work inside a five-star resort and, thus, inspire them to consider a career in hospitality.
The hotel’s Grand Ballroom was turned into a career exhibition center where the students were able to learn from experienced team members from each department. Job descriptions, daily tasks, quizzes and games related to each specific department were provided in each booth. The main objective was to enable the students to learn and develop skills that will be helpful for their future careers working at a hotel.
Careers@Hilton Week events are a unique opportunity for Hilton to inspire job seekers about careers in the hospitality industry, and to support them by providing guidance on the skills that are vital to succeed in the workplace and beyond. Participants join Hilton for events ranging from résumé clinics to networking, as well as presentations from current employees about their career paths in hospitality.
