The partnership will strengthen the next generation of hospitality workers through career mapping technology, access to employers, skills assessments and more.
Hcareers and the International Council on Hotel, Restaurant, and Institutional Education (International CHRIE) have announced a partnership to provide educational resources, career mapping technology, and internship programs to hospitality students and programs, beginning in the 2019-2020 school year.
Through the partnership, students will have access to exclusive internship and full-time opportunities, best-in-class career mapping technology and career advice from hospitality experts that will help prepare them for the future of work within the hospitality industry. In addition, Hcareers will work with members of the International CHRIE to promote original research and exemplary student performance at leading hospitality programs across the globe.
“Together, tourism and hospitality generate more than $8 trillion to the global economy,” says Ron Mitchell, CEO of Hcareers. “This partnership will allow Hcareers to have an impact and provide vital resources to students that will strengthen the industry for years to come.”
“International CHRIE’s partnership with Hcareers gives us additional opportunities to support our membership and increase the resources we’re able to provide to university programs,” says Kathy McCarty, Chief Executive Officer of the International CHRIE. “We’re confident students and educators will benefit from the opportunities provided through this partnership.”
The newly launched partnership significantly strengthens Hcareers’ mission to promote career opportunities available within the hospitality industry. By forging and expanding strong alliances with leading influencers and educators in the industry, Hcareers continues to help cultivate a highly skilled workforce.
