What About Employment?

“Employers will look for the assurances of qualifications and related experience. What they seek are competent, tenacious individuals who show initiative and the necessary craft-skills to perform the job well. They will also be searching for the trait, hospitality. Recruitment is a fickle and expensive business. As a result it can feel a little frosty at times, but for the right candidate, the process is full of excitement and opportunities. Worth bearing in mind, there are initial unknown quantities on both sides. The employer will want a high level of certainty that the individual is capable and with ongoing potential. The employee will want to know that the parameters of the work suit them and their skill set. That it is beneficial to their career path. Our alumni get a head start in this process and have access to a world of opportunities.”
