18/02/2011 - International companies recruit in Glion
Each year, around 100 companies come to visit Glion to recruit its graduates or to enrol for internship positions. In 2011, famous International Hotel Chains already started to recruit in one of the best hospitality management schools in the world for an international career.
GIHE had recently the pleasure to welcome Fairmont hotel and Resorts group on its campus in Bulle. The five star hotel chain was looking to hire students for Management Trainings in different hotels around the world. This type of training is a great opportunity for young graduates giving them the possibility to start their career and be trained to go through the career ladder within the chain.
In addition, Ritz Carlton group came to enrol students for internships in their hotels in Spain, Portugal and Ireland. Usually, a student doing an internship in an international chain keeps the contact and goes for the next internship in another hotel of the group somewhere else in the world. At the end of its studies, the young graduate gets very often a position in the same chain.
From February to April 2011 only, prestigious companies like Toga Hospitality (Australia/Europe), Accor, Marriott Headquarters, Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts, Hyatt, Hilton, Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park, Shangri-La International Hotel Management, Disneyland, The Landmark Hotel London, Rezidor, InterContinental, Mövenpick Hotels and Resorts and others will to come to visit Glion, give presentations and enrol students for different positions.
Other industries close to hospitality like tourism, finance or leisure value our well trained students and come to recruit them. The Yachts of Seabourn, Wise Foundation and Bacardi (Martini) are planned in 2011 as well. Glion graduates are highly appreciated by the hospitality industry. Each student has on average three job offers upon graduation, while 90 percent of the students have secured employment the moment they graduate.
