Hilton’s Middle East properties celebrate Careers@Hilton to engage with young talents


This May, Hilton celebrates Careers@Hilton, Hilton’s annual global career event showcasing the many opportunities available in the hospitality industry for young job seekers. During Careers@Hilton, Hilton hotels and corporate offices around the globe host hundreds of events to inform young people about the exciting and diverse career opportunities in the hospitality industry.

Careers@Hilton events are being held across the Middle East. For example, Hilton Hotels & Resort’s Dubai cluster held several events focused on job shadowing and work experience that impacted 550 students from various schools. In Saudi Arabia, Hilton’s hotels in Makkah and Hilton’s regional team conducted MOU signing ceremonies with the Tourism College at Umm Al Qura University, Laureate Vocational Saudi Arabia and Niagara College Makkah. In addition, in Egypt, students from a secondary school visited Hilton Sharms Waterfall Resort to listen to inspiring career talks and visit each department. The hotel also held an event for people with short stature – and three of the people who attended were hired to work at Hilton’s hotels in Egypt.
