Crown Institute of Studies students securing jobs

Crown Institute of Studies students are securing jobs left, right and centre!

In less than 24 hours, ten Crown Institute of Studies students secured interviews with some Aucklands leading businesses and several have secured jobs before graduating!

This makes Crown's annual industry day on the 21st of November a great success.

Function Staff, one of the biggest companies who outsource event staff to major organisations such as Ellerslie Convention Centre have hired six Crown students after meeting with them at the Industry Day.

Langham, STA Travel, Accor Hotels and Contiki were only a few of the big names that attended.

“We love working with Crown Institute of Studies students and their graduates. I find they are work ready and have all the knowledge and training so they can step into any type of Hospitality role without further training,” says Troy Huston owner of Function Staff.

Showcase Hospitality, Base Backpackers, Contiki and Accor have all expressed interest in Crown students and have offered some interviews.

Industry Days are an excellent opportunity for students to learn more about the different organisations they could work for, learn about the different career paths they could take and present themselves as future employees.
