- Love call of large hotel chain, 8 students who are enrolled and graduated passed the regular recruitment process.
Recently, the hotel industry has actively attracted talented people such as students and graduates of Jeonju University's Department of Hotel Management.
Expectations for an economic recovery are spreading to the hotel industry's recruitment market as the Corona 19 vaccine has been expected. The hotel industry has reduced its size due to a sharp drop in travel demand due to the Corona 19 in 2020. However, this year, consumption is rebounding due to the easing of containment, and the hiring of human resources seems to be on the rise.
As new hiring expanded, Jeonju University's Department of Hotel Management drew attention. Since late February, large hotel chain Four Seasons Hotel Seoul, JW Marriott Seoul, Hyatt Andaz Seoul Gangnam, and Shilla Stay headquarters have been receiving frequent recruitment inquiries to recommend talent to Jeonju University's hotel management department. There are about 10 people who want to be hired right away, and if economic activities resume in earnest, the number of people who want to be hired immediately is expected to explode. A total of eight graduates of Jeonju University's hotel management department have been hired since the last three weeks.
By hotel department, three will work in Four Seasons Hotel Seoul Food and Beverage Department, two will work at JW Marriott Seoul Fitness Sales and Front, one at Andaz Hyatt Seoul Gangnam Front, and two will work at Shilla Stay headquarters.
This recruitment has also had a significant impact on the recovery of the hotel industry, but the hotel industry's positive perception of Jeonju University's hotel management department has also contributed. Jeonju University's Department of Hotel Management has held major positions in domestic hotels since seniors who have been employed abroad for years have built their careers in overseas hotels. In addition, as professors from hoteliers run practical-oriented curricula, graduates are highly recognized in the industry.
It also expanded the opportunity to study and develop careers abroad through hands-on training linked to overseas hotels and English education programs. It also runs a joint curriculum with the University of Seneca in Canada and provides hands-on and job opportunities through overseas hotel network programs. As a result, the cumulative number of overseas employees reached 320. Recently, the English Zone was established on the first floor of the college of culture and tourism, which allows students to learn English and foreign cultures, expanding their chances of using English.
Kim Kwan-woo(2nd semester of 4th grade), a student of the Department of Hotel Management, said, "I feel that the hotel industry is revived and the atmosphere is reversed as I see the increase in job openings in just a few months." He also said, "It seems that various programs at Jeonju University, overseas employment activities, and exchanges with many alumni who have entered the hotel industry have motivated and built up practical skills have served as a strength in the job market.
Shim Young-guk, a professor of hotel management (Director of the College of Culture and Tourism), said, "We are cautiously predicting that free domestic and international travel will be possible between countries that can deal with Corona 19 in a stable manner soon. The hotel industry is also rapidly hiring talent to prepare for this demand, and in particular, the hotel industry is expected to move, with the opening of the Fairmonte Hotel, Acor Group's top brand, in Seoul. He also said, "Hotels also want talent who can be put into the field right away and work, so requests for talent recommendation from departments are gradually increasing."
