Educate the block held a speed networking event on February 17th. Students had the opportunity to meet with hospitality industry professionals for short one on one interviews.
The Hospitality Class had the opportunity to show of their skills before meeting the guests by decorating the space and creating an arrangement of hors d’oeurves. The guests were representatives from local hotels, restaurants, and staffing agencies including; Westin Hotels, W. Hotel Hoboken, Star Staffing, Mausam Restaurants, and the Council for Airport Opportunities. Each representative gave the students a presentation on their company before the speed interview session. The students met with each recruiter for a intensive interview. The event was a big success for the hospitality class, one third of the students received immediate job offers with others landing follow up interviews.
