Protocol and rules for participating students

  • Dress code (compulsory): Men are required to wear a suit, tie and shoes, while a business uniform for women. The students specializing in any kitchen program may wear a chef's uniform as long as it is worn in perfect condition. Those who do not meet these requirements will not be able to access the event hall.

  • Personal image: The students must show up with a high standard of physical appearance.
  • Presentations:  Attendance at the presentations is mandatory as it is a unique academic activity to learn about the vision and values of the invited hotel groups.

  • Punctuality: Candidates must arrive 10 minutes prior to registration, presentations, and interviews.

How do PDD work?

EUHT StPOL sends to the companies the CV of the students of all the academic programs that finish their studies, as well as, the CV of the former students of EUHT StPOL that would like to participate in the Professional Development Days.

The companies make a preselection of the candidates chosen to interview during the PDD.

Those interested in a specific company that have not been selected, may leave their CV in the tray of the corresponding company.

This is not the only way to get internships or job offers through EUHT StPOL, as it has contacts with independent establishments that need interns and staff to fill job vacancies.
