Alumni Networking Event

The inaugural SCU Alumni Networking event was held on Friday 14th July 2006 at the Australian School of Tourism and Hotel Management’s Perth campus.

The evening started with a speech from the guest speaker Terence McVeigh, who mainly focussed on the importance of alumni association, networking and its advantages by referring to some of his own personal experiences. Some key SCU staff members who participated on behalf of SCU made a key difference in their professionalism and caring nature.
Past SCU graduates mingled nicely with the recent graduates on level 2 of ASTHM’s restaurant cum bar area, where the tables were set up as a restaurant for the occasion. It is expected that there will be many more events like this happening in Western Australia on behalf of SCU in the future.

Corporate Traineeships and a graduates perspective...

Wei Li - Graduate
Bachelor of Business in Hotel & Catering Management

I recently went to Kuala Lumpur for the third and final stage of a job interview with the Hilton International. The Hilton’s Elevator Programme is the most advanced and prestigious management traineeship on offer. Unfortunately, I did not meet all the criteria of the programme. However, I strongly believe it is important to share my experience with fellow students who wish to pursue their careers in hotel management via a corporate traineeship path.

The Assessment Centre set up at Petaling Jaya Hilton in Kuala Lumpur aim to discover if the finalists have outstanding qualities to be selected onto this elite programme. The standards for entry are extremely high and candidates are tested over 24 hrs period. My experience at the assessment centre tells me that to successfully get through the assessment centre, one must prepare him/herself for that day. more
