The Hospitality Institute Job Training program includes four days of intensive job readiness instruction plus an additional day for a mini Job Fair and are usually held every 12 weeks. Trainers from Miami Dade College together with hospitality industry executives, the Greater Miami Convention & Visitors Bureau, and motivational speakers make presentations on customer service skills, job applications and interviewing techniques, resume coaching, tips on appearance, computer instruction, job descriptions, keys to successful employment and how to access further education. All graduates receive a certificate of completion which is required for participation in the Job Fair. Graduates are encouraged to visit the office of the Hospitality Institute to view new job postings that are received from employers on a weekly basis. Graduates who are employed are eligible to be members of the Alumni Association which meets quarterly.
All participants who complete the three full days of training receive a Certificate of Completion from The Hospitality Institute and a certificate from the Greater Miami Convention & Visitors Bureau. The certificates are awarded during the Graduation Ceremonies on the morning of the Job Fair beginning at 9:00 a.m. Graduates are also offered the opportunity to visit the “Suited for Success” organization, located near the Hospitality Institute Office,where they receive assistance in selecting business attire to wear to the Job Fair. One of the activities of the Graduation Ceremonies before the certificates are awarded is the opportunity for the graduates to offer their comments on the sessions.
