BANGKOK - Hilton Sukhumvit Bangkok has taken part in Careers@Hilton Week, Hilton's annual global career event showcasing the many opportunities available in the hospitality industry for youth and other job seekers. From May 15 to May 21, 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.

On May 22, 2017, Hilton Sukhumvit Bangkok and DoubleTree by Hilton Sukhumvit Bangkok hosted an event which welcomed 75 students from Rajamangala University of Technology Bangkok to visit the two Hilton properties in Bangkok. The students were assigned to different groups to experience various departments including engineering, food and beverage, kitchen, housekeeping and front office. Students enjoyed creative coffee breaks featuring Hilton's Meet with Purpose meetings concept as well as a three-course lunch while learning about table manners and etiquette. They also participated in quiz games on stage to receive prizes.

"We are passionate about raising awareness for building careers within the hospitality industry and are delighted to be doing this through one of our annual global career events showcasing the many opportunities available in the hospitality industry for youth and other job seekers," said Ian Barrow, general manager, Hilton Sukhumvit Bangkok. "These young talents in Bangkok continue to face challenging employment prospects, so this is another great platform for them to learn about Hilton. It is now more crucial than ever to make sure they receive information and advice about the options available, the skills and attributes they will need once they embark on their chosen careers."

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.
