Essential Skills for Hospitality, Service and Tourism
August 13 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm PDT
92% of employers say that today’s job candidates don’t have the most important skills and personality traits needed for their jobs, such as tolerance, confidence, problem-solving skills, curiosity, knowing one’s strengths/weaknesses, and decisiveness (Source: Erasmus Impact Study 2014). Tamwood Careers consult with industry employers who contribute to our programs’ design to make sure you’ll get trained in the actual skills that employers are looking for. This helps you get the job you want!
