The hospitality sector must do more to attract university-leavers into the industry, it has been claimed.
In news that might be of interest to those searching for graduate jobs, Nick Scade of the Academy of Food and Wine, explained that firms in the industry must sell themselves better, reports Caterer Search.
He said: "There are a huge number of opportunities, whether in hotels, restaurants or contract catering, all of which can offer exciting, fulfilling careers."
As catering is a young industry, people in their 20s and 30s can find themselves working as managers in the sector, Mr Scade added.
Well-motivated people entering the sector will find they have a "bright future", he stated.
Last week, Ben Clifton, spokesperson for Lattitude Global Volunteering, claimed that work experience gained on a gap year can be vital for people looking to stand out in the graduate jobs market.
He explained that while travelling the world does not add anything to a CV, getting involved with well organised projects will.
