The Professional Development Days aim to facilitate the employment of new graduates in hotel management, culinary arts, gastronomy, restaurant service or events through an internship or a career plan within companies.
In this edition, which will be held on February 1 and 2 in a virtual format as a Covid-19 prevention measure, nearly 80 students from the different EUHT StPOL academic programs will be interviewed by human resources representatives from the thirteen participating hotel chains: Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group (Hong Kong), Marriott International (USA) Barceló Hotels & Resorts, Iberostar Hotels & Resorts, Paradores, H10 Hotels, Riu Hotels & Resorts, Meliá Hotels International, Minor Hotels (Thailand), Senator Hotels & Resorts, Marugal Distinctive Hotel Management, Four Seasons (Canada) and Six Senses Hotels Resorts and Spas (Thailand).
The different internship proposals and career plans for each student will emerge from the two days of interviews. In most cases, every student will have several offers to choose his or her professional destination.
In the previous edition, the Professional Development Days closed with nearly 400 interviews with a hundred students in their final year of studies.The event is an effective and efficient formula for facilitating the incorporation of new graduates into the hospitality industry.
