Careers@Hilton Week Showcases the Diverse and Rewarding Career Opportunities in Hospitality for Job Seekers Around the World.
The Hilton Aruba Caribbean Resort & Casino 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 week of May 14, 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 17th, the Hilton Aruba Caribbean Resort & Casino hosted students of the local Ibero-American high school. The students experienced an orientation session followed by shadowing key executives on their job.
The visit was well orchestrated by the department of human resource and General Manager Hans-Georg Roehrbein, personally greeted students and held an open exchange of ideas in his office. “We work long hours, and we’re never off on weekends and holidays,” he explained, “but we love what we do and wouldn’t have it other way. If you thrive on diversity and excitement, you might want to consider a career in hospitality”, he added.
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.
