The Hague, 19 October 2023

Hotelschool The Hague’s Career fair was successfully held on 19 October on campus in The Hague. This was the perfect chance for students to source for top placement opportunities and/or their next professional opportunity! From hotels and hospitality companies like Marriott, Rosewood, Accor, Belmond and KLM to corporates such as ABN AMRO, Crisp, Rituals, RAI Amsterdam, 50 Industry partners joined the big event.

This year's edition, with 300+ students participating and 50 high-end companies representing their selection of placement opportunities, the Career fair was a hive of activity. Students had the opportunity to browse through company stands, meet representatives from all over the world, and have their personal “Meet and Greet" interviews with them after lunch.

“Hotelschool The Hague students have big dreams and even bigger goals, which resonates with Rosewood’s vision of inspiring imagination. We also dream big.”

Elena Kalina, Director of Talent & Culture at Rosewood

The Career fair is unveiling an invaluable mix of career opportunities, advice for life, and insights from industry leaders to the students. From a company’s perspective, this is the ideal moment to showcase the business and recruit students and alumni in one day.

With 50 Industry partners -hotel and hospitality businesses and businesses where hospitality makes a difference- joining, this event is a unique opportunity for our students, and shows a great variety of professional opportunities. New partners Marie-Stella-Maris, Aman Resorts, and Leading Hotels of the World joined this edition for the first time.

For yet another edition, the placement office successfully managed to create a meeting place for students, partners and staff to connect with and explore internship and research opportunities. We are proud of the network and collaborations we have built with our partners throughout the years which give the opportunity to our students to pursue their next career steps worldwide.

"Today’s career fair was all about connections; I was able to interact with many companies offering internships worldwide, helping me choose the right path for my future.”

“This career fair has broadened my horizons; I thought I wanted one specific thing in a specific industry, but after talking with multiple different companies, my interests can be met by various others potential internships. I am thankful for this career fair and the new options it has open up for me.”
