Hos­pi­tal­ity ap­pli­cants need fur­ther study

The Advertiser - Careers - - Front Page -

ONE in 10 hos­pi­tal­ity work­ers who ap­ply for a job reach the sec­ond round of the ap­pli­ca­tion process, an in­dus­try spe­cial­ist says.

In­terCon­ti­nen­tal Ho­tels Group tal­ent re­sourc­ing man­ager An­drew Mor­ley says the sec­tor has a skills drought be­cause only 10 per cent of ap­pli­cants have the goods to make it past the first stage.

‘‘ Ap­pli­cants fail to de­liver on two fronts: ei­ther they do not have the re­quired qual­i­fi­ca­tions to be se­lected for stage two of the in­ter­view process or there is a lack of at­ten­tion to de­tail on their re­sume,’’ he says.

Mor­ley says hav­ing a pro­fes­sional so­cial me­dia pro­file also is im­por­tant.
