For quite sometime i have been subscribing to the International Centre of Excellence in Tourism & Hospitality Education (THE ICE) newsletter basically because i have always been interested in pursuing a part time course in cooking (i have a passion for cooking-fine dine especially) and always update myself on the industry news,recipes, information... etc. Today i received an interesting newsletter about their new career website dubbed Spotmeonline.com which i know will be a ready resource for many students eager to pursue a course in the tourism and hospitality sector. More so the website will provide a bridge/nexus between students and potential employers on an international scale. I hereby reprint some of the concepts, ideas and an excerpt from the newsletter indicating the drive behind the new spotmeonline website
As part of their integrated web strategy, THE-ICE has now initiated a new site called SpotMeOnline. The research conducted through the International Student Barometer (ISB) showed that 'getting a career' was by and far the main reason students chose to study tourism, hospitality and events. Yet most institutional websites concentrated on the available programmes of study ..... and not the careers that were available after graduation.
THE-ICE saw that there was an opportunity to develop a 'sister' site that focused more on jobs and careers than on courses - but in order to finance its development we realised that this also needed to be a commercial activity. 'SpotMe' was the concept that has now been launched. It is a site focused on matching job seekers and recruiters, and includes a number of exciting interactive features to appeal to students such as blogs, social networking opportunities, video uploads and the like. We are still in the process of populating the site with information and content, and it will be cross-promoted on THE-ICE website.
If you have the time please visit the site!
