Dusit Thani College lifts its service and tourism job fair to ASEAN level
It had been an annual practice for Dusit Thani College, a specialized educational institute in hotel management, tourism, and culinary arts under Dusit International, to organize Hospitality Career Day to give opportunities in hospitality industry to the college’s students before expanding the event into a national level last year. The fair, newly named Hospitality Talent Fair, attracted those who had interests in these fields from all over the country to participate in.
In this coming year, the event is planned to embrace the greatness of hospitality industry by inviting the related businesses in Thailand, ASEAN, and other regions such as Europe, The Middle East, and America to install their recruitment booths inside. It will also open the door of opportunities for jobseekers all over ASEAN region under the name, ASEAN Hospitality Talent Fair 2023. This event will be held onsite at Dusit Thani College Bangkok and online via Cvent platform.
Ms. Frouke Gerbens, Rector of Dusit Thani College, said that the inception of ASEAN Economic Community (AEC) in 2015 which gathered 10 neighboring countries together – Thailand, Myanmar, Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam, Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, the Philippines, and Brunei – has resulted in a free flow of skilled labors within ASEAN region. The hospitality industry is one of the main sectors which drives the economy of this region with distinctive tourist attractions that each member country has, making ASEAN region a tourist destination for travelers around the world.
“Every country in ASEAN region has its own iconic attractions which are various, identical, and notable, so are their identity of services”, said Ms. Frouke. “Therefore, the agglomeration of countries in ASEAN region under the AEC policy is a great opportunity to migrate labors across the nation as well as to exchange hospitality knowledge and experience. Thailand, as a globally recognized country for supreme quality of service standards, has been a targeted workplace of many neighboring countries to learn more of Thai Hospitality. Therefore, this upcoming ASEAN Hospitality Talent Fair is definitely a great opportunity for ASEAN people to find hospitality jobs in Thailand. In the meantime, Thai people who wish to gain more experience in ASEAN region and the other parts of the world could also seek those opportunities here. Dusit Thani College believes that this event will strengthen the hospitality industry in ASEAN region and consequently draw travelers from all over the world to the beauty of ASEAN service minds.”
Apart from several opening job opportunities in hospitality businesses in Thailand, ASEAN countries, and the rest of the world from hotels, restaurants, spas, travel agents and other related businesses, this event offers a variety of interesting workshops such as Secret to Working Abroad, Take Your CV to the Next Level, etc. There are also special talks by leading hospitality experts who will share their aspects and experience to equip more knowledge for the audience. What’s special about this event is the offers to go for an internship abroad from agents in many countries. Jobseekers are invited to visit this fair without any charge.
ASEAN Hospitality Talent Fair 2023 will be held during 30-31 March 2023 at Srinakarin Hall, Dusit Thani College on Srinakarin Road (next to Seacon Square), Bangkok.
