Careers@Hilton Live Showcases the Dynamic Career Opportunities Available in Hospitality for Job Seekers Around the World
This is Hilton Worldwide’s largest ever global career event showcasing to young people, the many opportunities available in the hospitality industry. Throughout the month of May, Hilton Worldwide hotels and corporate offices around the globe hosted hundreds of events to inform those looking for employment, about the vast array of exciting opportunities available to all in the hospitality industry. This event is part of Bright Blue Futures, a global program that encourages Team Members to donate their time and expertise to help young people achieve stability and bring hope to their communities, preparing them for a brighter future.
Careers@Hilton Live: Youth in Hospitality Month is a part of Hilton Worldwide’s Open Doors commitment, which aims to positively impact at least one million young people by 2019 and better prepare them to reach their full potential.
Careers@Hilton Live: Youth in Hospitality events are a unique opportunity for Hilton Worldwide Team Members to inspire those looking for employment 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.
On May 23rd 2015, Hilton Hanoi Opera & Hilton Garden Inn Hanoi hosted “Careers@Hilton Live”, a half-day event which welcomed over 500 students from ten different schools to explore the jobs and opportunities in a hotel, observe team members while on the job, participate in games and explore potential career interests and opportunities for themselves.
Andrew Nisbet, Cluster General Manager of Hilton Hanoi Opera and Hilton Garden Inn Hanoi, said, “Young people continue to face challenging employment prospects, so it is more important than ever to make sure they receive information and advice about the options available and the skills and attributes they will need once they embark on their chosen careers.”
“We are passionate about raising awareness of the opportunities the hospitality industry offers and we are delighted to be doing this through one of our biggest ever careers events across the globe.”
