Final year students of Hotel Catering and Institutional Management (HCIM) were advised to make professionalism be their steer as they prepare to enter the job market. The hospitality industry, they were told has become very competitive in recent times, and a course of study such as HCIM gives students the opportunity to combine theory and practice. Therefore being professional requires them to use the knowledge and skills that they have acquired from school to gain qualities that mark their profession. Students should always thrive to talk the talk and walk the walk.
They should put their best to the wheel and exhibit all that is expected of them in the various field of work. Marrying this together with ethical values, attention to details, interpersonal communication and customer service is a surest way for them to excel in the industry.
