HONG KONG, CHINA--(Marketwired - Feb 21, 2017) - AsiaHospitalityCareers.com, a one-stop centralized website connecting employers in all sectors of the hospitality industry with job seekers around the world, will launch at the HKTDC Education and Careers Expo from 23-26 February, 2017 which will be held at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Center in Hong Kong (Booth No.: 1C-E23). The website (www.AsiaHospitalityCareers.com) is an industry specific job portal aiming to transform the recruitment process in the Asian hospitality field.
THE FIRST JOB PORTAL BUILT FOR THE HOSPITALITY INDUSTRY IN ASIA
AsiaHospitalityCareers.com is the first job portal built specifically for Asia's fast growing hospitality industry -- including hotels, food and beverage outlets, cruise ships, theme parks, airlines, casinos, golf and other membership clubs, convention organizers, serviced apartments, and other travel and tourism companies -- with would-be job seekers around the world who are seeking related employment in this region. For job seekers, registration is completely free of charge. The job portal offers not only the latest hospitality job opportunities across Asia but also the latest industry news and developments in the region. "Our aim is to make a difference in the hospitality industry in Asia by bringing everyone together onto a single platform" says AsiaHospitalityCareers.com Co-Founder Danny Li. "Our site will save companies time by helping them find the right people and help job seekers anywhere find opportunities in Asia's expanding hospitality industry."
HOW ASIAHOSPITALITYCAREERS.COM WORKS
The website is simple to use and works in a myriad of ways. Potential job seekers can directly register and set up their accounts for free on the website. Once registered, job seekers can apply for job opportunities, set up email notifications for new jobs as they are posted that match their employment wishes and use the website as their personal job application system.
Hospitality employers, in turn, can post job openings and directly receive applications from potential employees, browse through a database of potential job seekers and receive notifications for new suitable job seekers. The website is currently in English. Chinese language rollout is expected in the first quarter of 2017. "There has never been a dedicated website for job seekers looking for hospitality opportunities in Asia, instead job seekers had to utilize multiple platforms across different countries," says AsiaHospitalityCareers.com Co-Founder May Chan. "This site changes all that. We're a one-stop regional job portal where job seekers from anywhere can find opportunities in the industry and hospitality employers can find the right people."
MOVING AHEAD WITH ASIAHOSPITALITYCAREERS.COM
The site already features many leading hospitality employers such as Conrad Hotel, Crowne Plaza Hong Kong Kowloon East, Dining Concepts, Dream Cruises, Genting Hong Kong, Harbour Grand Kowloon, Plaza Premium Group, Regal Hotels, Renaissance Harbour View Hotel, and Star Cruises. Companies in the hospitality industry from across the region are welcome to post their job openings, whether they are basic entry level service positions or management professionals. AsiaHospitalityCareers.com offers flexible job posting packages to its clients. The site will also reflect the ever-changing needs of both employers and job seekers by offering regular industry news updates and additional featured articles. "We have no vested interest in the recruitment process as we are not a recruitment agency," says Chan. "But we do want to make a difference and to help promote the hospitality industry to young job seekers. AsiaHospitalityCareers.com can be a game-changer for the hospitality industry and our launch at the upcoming HKTDC Education and Careers Expo announces that we've arrived."
