The main attribute of hospitality industry being the one which primarily engages young executives, the new students were shown an example of the same by them being audience to the address by Mr. Abhijit Panda, Training Manager of the Roseate Hotels, who, at but a young age of 25, guided the students as to how they could carve for themselves a successful career and make an identity in this trade.
In order to give a multi-faceted exposure, the new students were addressed by Ms Geetika Sharma, another young Human Resources Manager from the Marriott Hotels, followed by which, Mr. Sunil Mathur, a stalwart in hotel operations with four decades of experience spoke about what the industry expectations of the modern hotels were and how these students could cope up with long working hours.
A perfectly balanced life is what makes one go up the ladder fast, especially when one is connected with the hospitality trade. With the apprehension that industry expectations are varied, unexpected and, at times extremely rigorous and demanding, leading to stress, the students, were given a special talk by experts to manage such situations.
The two-day orientation therefore was consummated with great success.
