Hilton Colombo and Hilton Colombo Residences participated 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.
This event is part of Bright Blue Futures, a global program that encourages team members to donate their time and expertise to help young people achieve stability and bring hope to their communities, preparing them for a brighter future.
Hilton Colombo General Manager Manesh Fernando 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,” said Hilton Colombo Residences General Manager Karim Schadlou.
Anyone unable to attend an event in person during the month of May can still take part in Hilton Worldwide’s digital ‘Career Concierge’. Those interested in learning more about careers in hospitality can submit their questions online via Twitter using hashtag #CareersatHilton, or through the form at www.hiltonworldwide.com/youth. Each week in May, this website will be updated to host a selection of the submitted questions, answered by a panel of Hilton Worldwide team members.
