'Speed dating' careers evening

Young TEC Wellington recently promoted tourism as a great career at a NZ School of Tourism ‘speed dating’ event .

TIA Events & Marketing Specialist Jo van der Linden attended the July event. She says it was a great opportunity for the Young TEC members to share their passion for the industry and promote the diverse range of career opportunities and pathways open to the students.

The format was three minute, one on one meetings followed by networking.

“The students were excited to be entering the tourism industry and asked great questions about career direction and how we got to where we are, as well as more industry specific questions.

“All the Young TEC members who attended were very impressed with how engaged the students were – they’ll be excellent additions to the industry.”
