BOSTON - Five Boston hotels - Hilton Boston Logan Airport, Hilton Boston Back Bay, DoubleTree Suites by Hilton Boston - Cambridge, DoubleTree by Hilton Boston - Downtown and DoubleTree Club by Hilton Boston Bayside will take part in Careers@Hilton Live: Youth in Hospitality Month, Hilton Worldwide's largest ever global career event showcasing to young people, the many opportunities available in the hospitality industry. Throughout the month of May, Hilton Worldwide hotels and corporate offices around the globe are hosting hundreds of events to inform those looking for employment, including young people, about the vast array of exciting opportunities available to all in the hospitality industry.
Careers@Hilton Live: Youth in Hospitality events are a unique opportunity for Hilton Worldwide Team Members to inspire those looking for employment 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 have been joining Hilton Worldwide Team Members for events ranging from résumé clinics, to career speed-networking, as well as presentations from Team Members on their career paths.
On May 16, 2014, five Boston hotels - Hilton Boston Logan Airport, Hilton Boston Back Bay, DoubleTree Suites by Hilton Boston - Cambridge, DoubleTree by Hilton Boston - Downtown and DoubleTree Club by Hilton Boston Bayside - will participate in a Career Awareness Day at the East Boston High School. Nearly 1,000 students are expected to attend the event for the opportunity to conduct one-on-one informational interviews with key players from each hotel. From Human Resources to the General Manager, hotel team members will address questions from students to offer insights into the multitude of opportunities with a career in hospitality, and discuss how students' current skills can apply to different departments.
Chris Rule, Director of Human Resources at the Hilton Boston Logan Airport, and co-coordinator of this event for all five properties, said, "Young people continue to face challenging employment prospects, so it is more important than ever to make sure they receive information and advice about the options available and the skills and attributes they will need once they embark on their chosen careers.
"We are passionate about raising awareness of the opportunities the hospitality industry offers and we are delighted to be doing this through one of our biggest ever careers events across the globe."
Careers@Hilton Live: Youth in Hospitality Month is a part of Hilton Worldwide's Open Doors commitment, which aims to positively impact at least one million young people by 2019 and better prepare them to reach their full potential.
