Networking with industry partners at Career Fair
Our recent Le Cordon Bleu Adelaide Career Fair was a networking success, with 153 students seizing the opportunity to meet industry partner representatives from 27 leading hospitality organisations, five-star hotels and prestige resorts.
Le Cordon Bleu has an impressive network of industry partners who welcome our students for Work Integrated Learning (WIL) industry placements, a programme which is integral to professional development and supported by our Industry Engagement Team.
Our Career Fairs are the perfect platform for students to meet with representatives from different organisations and connect with those who align most closely with their career ambitions. Our industry partners are instrumental in providing graduates with outstanding employment opportunities and the potential to open doors to overseas careers.
Many Le Cordon Bleu alumni who have been employed by industry partners, were on hand to share their experiences and talk about their career journeys as representatives of their hospitality organisation.
“As a Canadian student living in Australia, the Career Fair is a fantastic opportunity to meet people in industry, and research organisations for future employment and Work Integrated Learning placements.”
