At this point in December, we hope most of you are done with exams and home for Winter Break. This is a great time for you to relax, subscribe to One Day, One Job, and start looking for great job ideas. Your Mom will probably want you to figure out what you want to do after college by spending 8 hour days cruising job boards, working on your resume, and calling her friends so that you can “network.” We think you should go on vacation – even if it’s just a day trip somewhere. Expose yourself (not that way, perv) to complete strangers in places you’ve never been before. Strike up random conversations. See a cultural attraction that fascinates you. Eat a new type of ethnic cuisine. Observe everything that you experience in the context of your job search.

Now that you’re going on vacation (come on, do it!), one job idea should smack you in the face immediately. The hospitality industry intrigues many college students because it represents an adventure. Even though the thought is completely unrealistic, how can you not like the idea of being on a permanent vacation? Don’t get us wrong – working in a hotel or resort is not a vacation, but the same things that make vacations appealing (new places, new people, and friendliness) will make a job in hospitality management exciting every day. It truly is a career path that can take you anywhere in the world, even if where you want to go lacks the economic development needed to support most other industries.

If you’re going to work in a hotel or resort, it might as well be top notch. Why not the Four Seasons? They offer a wide range of opportunities for new college graduates. Most jobs at hotels, resorts, and in hospitality in general don’t require very much experience or education to get started. You can pretty much pick an area of interest from Four Seasons’ hotel divisions and a location and begin an adventure. Even if your goal is to eventually own or manage a hotel, starting at the bottom will give you the hands on experience with customers and guests that you’ll need to be successful. We’re not big on paying dues, but in hospitality management it’s truly an essential part of the experience. There is one exception – if you have spent the past four years in a hospitality management program or have work/internship experience in the hospitality industry, you can probably jump ahead (since you’ve already started paying your dues) by applying for Four Seasons’ Corporate Management Training Program. We’re not sure how strict they are about it, but it appears to be limited to students from University of Denver, N.S.M.H. – Seattle, Niagara University, Cornell University, UNLV, the Culinary Institute of America, Ryerson University, International University of Bad Honnef, Oxford Brookes University, and Emirates Academy of Hotel Management.

If you attend one of those schools, you should be able to get more informations on career opportunities at Four Seasons from your Career Services office. For the rest of you, the best way to get a job is to contact the Four Seasons location that you’re interested in directly. Their Employment page does have a job search function, but it only returns position titles and locations with no other details. It looks like Four Seasons recruiters are willing to talk with you about your career plans, so why not take them up on the opportunity?

Four Seasons has 74 properties in 31 countries. So, whether you’re looking for an adventure after college or a career in hospitality management, they offer great entry-level opportunities. And just in case you were worried about what it’s like working for them, Four Seasons has been named one of Fortune’s 100 Best Companies to Work For 8 years straight (most recently they were ranked #53 in 2007 and #27 in 2006).

    I do not quite understand why are the job opportunities limited to students from Cornell University, UNLV, the Culinary Institute of America, Ryerson University, International University of Bad Honnef, Oxford Brookes University. They appear to be such great places to study. Why do not the empjoyers want to see graduates from those universities as their future employees? Somebody, please explain that.
