Bridging the gap between high School students and the hospitality industry
The hospitality and tourism industry is growing and requiring professionals for employment. More high school graduates are discovering the benefits of a career in this industry.

Choosing a major and selecting a career-path is not an easy job. The School of Tourism and Hotel Management at the University of Balamand decided to use creative and nontraditional means to inform high school students about the job opportunities presented by this industry.

We pride ourselves on our extensive business connection, that’s why we decided to contact the Phoenicia Intercontinental Hotel, a world renowned luxury hotel, and considered a landmark in Lebanon to organize a house tour for potential high school students. The aim of the tour was to equip students with a solid understanding of the tourism and hospitality industry. Moreover, the tour was tailored to introduce them to an international lodging facility with all the front and back-of-the-house departments that constitute a hotel and how each department functions within the company. Three of our current undergraduates took part in this event to share their own experiences at the University and during their trainings.

After the completion of the tour, the students, faculty members and hotel managers met for a buffet cocktail at Café Mondo and they were addressed by many administrative key persons in the hotel.
The high-school students enjoyed the tour as they got acquainted with the Hotel operations while being treated like “guests”, given the opportunity to be inspired by industry professionals.
