SEOUL, Korea - Conrad Seoul has taken part in Careers@Hilton Week on May 24th, which is Hilton's annual global career event showcasing the many opportunities available in the hospitality industry for youth and other job seekers. From May 15 to May 21, 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.
On May 24, Conrad Seoul hosted an event which saw over 100 young mentees, invited to become the hoteliers of tomorrow, to meet with a group of executive mentors. Sharing their expertise, the mentors engaged one on one, before finishing with a Q&A session, job trial experience, and group interview. All the participants at the event were introduced to the main positions available in hotels, including jobs in Culinary, Room department and F&B, Sales & Marketing, Human Resources, and Finance.
Mark Meany, the General Manager of Conrad Seoul said, "As young people continue to face challenging employment prospects, it is important to fully apprehend the skills and attributes they will need practically in the position they want to apply for and prepare for their future with a systematic plan. I hope the advice based on this real life experience can act as a significant contribution to help people find their way in their future careers".
