2/23/2012

CLEVELAND, WI – 

Lakeshore Technical College welcomes over 100 Manitowoc and Sheboygan area High School students to a unique event designed to showcase career opportunities in the Hospitality Industry.

On February 27th, 105 students aged 16-18 are gathering at the Blue Harbor Resort & Spa in Sheboygan from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., to gain awareness of training and education needs to access job opportunities in the hospitality sector.

The students will get an industry overview of the needs and demands in the sector and look at possible job opportunities in the region. Interviewing skills and business protocol, such as proper dress and customer service will also be explored.

Students can also attend a mini Job Fair and apply and possibly interview for local positions.

Blue Harbor staff will escort students on tours of the facility and share their first- hand experience in the industry.

The event is designed to connect the Hospitality Industry directly to area K-12 students to develop career awareness and to provide information on LTC's Culinary Arts degree program based in the Lakeshore Culinary Institute in Sheboygan. Graduates are trained to become chefs, independent restaurateurs, bakers or pastry chefs, sales staff for the food industry, food service managers, and corporate chefs.
