Hotel and Hospitality Open Week
Connecting Students with Hospitality Careers.
30 January 2023
Inspiring high school students towards new career opportunities, the inaugural Hospitality Open Week was held from 7th-11th of November 2022.
Hospitality Open Week is a collaborative initiative between The Regional Industry Education Partnerships (RIEP) program, Tourism Accommodation Australia, Accommodation Association of Australia and the Australian Hotels Association.
The RIEP team worked with high schools across Sydney, the Central Coast and Newcastle and connected over 300 students with local hotel and hospitality venues, where they took part in tours, interactive activities and learned about the opportunities on offer within the hospitality industry.
Students also had the chance to apply for hospitality jobs on the go, using a rapid application system. 45% of students who took part in tours either applied or were planning on applying for a job at the venue they attended.
