"The guest is always right... in other words, about careers and work in the hotel."

An occupational and educational trip to the Mercure Jelenia Góra Hotel as part of the Career Fair - a series of meetings between students and entrepreneurs, organized from the project "Live, reside, work in Jelenia Góra!"

On September 27, 2022, a group of students from Primary School No. 11 in Jelenia Góra participated in an occupational and educational trip to the Mercure Hotel in Jelenia Góra.

The purpose of the trip was to learn more about the profession of a hotelier and the principles of hotel operation. The students were introduced to the workstations that can be found in a hotel. The hotel's managers introduced the young people to the hotel's organizational units and work areas, such as first floor services, reception services, floor services, catering, laundry, administration, technical department, conference services, recreation department, booking department, sales and marketing department. During a tour of the premises "from behind the scenes", an important element was pointed out: working in these departments requires separate qualifications and competencies, as well as personality traits. It was discussed what jobs are performed in each department. The scope of activities and requirements for each job were presented. It was also noted that it is crucial to have supra-occupational competencies checked and verified during recruitment to specific positions. The young people were shown around the visited facility, where they observed the work of people in particular positions and where they could also ask questions about specific professions.

At the meeting with the entrepreneur, the students learned a brief history of the Jelenia Góra hotel. The meeting participants also explained the range of standards for hotel facilities in terms of the stars awarded.

The Career Fair - a series of meetings between students and entrepreneurs are intended to assist young people in choosing their future profession and the associated choice of secondary school. 

We would like to thank the managers and employees of the Mercure Jelenia Gora Hotel for the warm welcome, professional service and pleasant atmosphere.

At each of the companies, the young people became acquainted with the various jobs. The managers of both companies, who were involved in the youth's visits, extensively discussed the range of activities performed at each position and the predispositions and psycho-physical qualities a candidate for a given position should possess.

The young people were presented with the development path in each company, indicating the possibility of performing work around the world, both in individual branches and during the launch of the production line at the customer. In addition, students were introduced to the offer of internships and apprenticeships, which they could pursue already at the secondary school level.

Young people actively participated in the meetings, asking questions about professional requirements, employment opportunities and salary levels for particular positions. Throughout the meetings, the necessity of foreign language skills, especially English, was often emphasized to be eligible for job positions at VALMET and JZO.

The entire series of 8 meetings this year was attended by 110 students.

The primary purpose of these meetings was to familiarize young people with professions and specialists, the working environment, and the general and specific requirements for candidates for employees of a particular company. Meetings between students and entrepreneurs at individual companies were aimed at assisting young people in planning their educational and career paths and facilitating such an important decision as choosing a secondary school.
