Over the span of two days, the Aruba timeshare properties, members of ATSA, the Aruba Timeshare Association, opened their doors to inform and educated EPB students regarding the hotel industry on the island.
The students, who arrived from school by bus, were welcomed at the resorts by a member of management, toured all departments, and given a general overview of the daily activities required to service guests and help drive Aruba’s successful hospitality industry.
“We view this visit as crucial,” explains ATSA President, hotelier Andy Osborne, “as high school students face their potential employers for the first time, we try to motivate them to join the industry and become passionate about what we do.”
The students and their mentors hail from both the Hato and San Nicholas EPB schools, and they report enjoying the visit and the refreshments at the end of the morning.
This is the second consecutive year that ATSA orchestrates an orientation day for basic professional education students.
Among participating resorts this year, La Cabana Beach Resort & Spa, Amsterdam Manor, La Quinta, Costa Linda Beach Resort, Divi Resorts, Casa del Mar Beach Resort, Playa Linda Beach Resort, Tropicana Resort & Casino, Caribbean Palm Village Resort, and Paradise Beach Village.
