The College of Hospitality and Vocational Skills (CHVS) in the last year has placed several past students and teachers in Florida and Michigan, USA on overseas programmes. According to principal, Lornalee Benaiah, “The College today is very happy that we can find employment not only in Jamaica but also abroad, to ease the unemployment rate. We believe in providing students with lifelong employment opportunities and support services.”
The institution has helped thousands of students with employment locally and internationally since 2002, regardless of how long they graduated. The management and staff of the College have over 50 years combined experience in training and recruiting for small local businesses to large international corporations.
We also help prepare trainees over 18 years old for work experience and broker for them to access a range of suitable placement opportunities (paid and unpaid) with local employers. Students can come and meet us to discuss their course and desired work experience placement and or job placement as well as receive support with: CV writing, preparation of dossiers, interview preparation, advice, guidance and help in finding a job and preparation for work placement.
Employers can also get in touch to discuss: working with the college to offer jobs, working with us to provide work experience, attending jobs and careers fairs within the college, promotion of vacancies to students, careers talks and workshops based on curriculums.
