On Thursday March 2nd 2017, over 40 employers from the areas of culinary, tourism and hospitality will meet with students in the Department of Tourism & Hospitality at Cork Institute of Technology as part of the department’s annual career fair. Employers get a chance to speak to students who are graduating later this year and entering into the jobs market, along with those looking for part-time and summer work opportunities.
Dr Noel Murray, Head of the Department of Tourism & Hospitality commented “The annual event is an ideal opportunity for employers to meet with our students. This is our fourth year running the event and it has grown steadily each year, and has benefited both our students and employers in the industry, as a result of their engagement on the day”.
The event allows the various businesses to exhibit to the students, along with offering private interview facilities, followed by a luncheon for the various industry representatives which is prepared and served by the students, so that they can showcase their skills to potential future employers.
The Department of Tourism and Hospitality at CIT encompasses the areas of Culinary Arts, Tourism, Hospitality and Bar Management. It has over 650 students and a team of dedicated student-centred industry experienced Lecturers across these disciplines and is located in a modern purpose-built building on CIT’s Bishopstown Campus.
