     An event cultivating relevant skills of the students of the Hospitality and Tourism Management (HTM) Department under the roof of the College of Business and Accountancy (CBA) officially landed off on November 26, 2021, via Google Meet. This interactive webinar entitled “Skills that Work: What it Takes to be a Successful Hospitality and Tourism Professional” was organized by Pines Events of the HPC-MICEMGT class. This event was planned and conceptualized to address job skill mismatch issues in the country, particularly in the Tourism and Hospitality Industry, and to provide students with an informative program that scrutinizes Airline Safety Demonstrations, Personality Development, Front Office Operations, and Career Opportunities in the Casino Industry.

     Resource speakers who presented topics germane to the theme were invited to share their concrete experiences, knowledge, and skills. Ms. Maiza Jolly L. Tropa and Mr. Alexander Valeriano, Senior Cabin Crews and Instructors of Air Asia, discussed personality development and airline safety with passion and commitment. An intensive
talk on front office operations was delivered by Ms. Charmaine Y. Briones, a Support Agent at Celebrity Cruise. Finally, Ms. Jennifer D. Ordinario, a Slots Administrative and Strategic Officer at Hann Casino Resort (Widus Philippines Inc.) specified the job opportunities that await HTM students after completing their program or course.


    The five-hour webinar promptly started at 8 o'clock in the morning. To maintain the enthusiasm of the attendees, the resource speakers capably showcased their skills to expound essential information that will help HTM students to become competent hospitality and tourism professionals in the future.


     Overwhelmed and amazed, certainly, all student-attendees will consider this webinar worthy and fruitful including the school administrators led by Dr. Gloria B. Abrazado, Vice President for Academic Affairs; the CBA faculty members led by Mr. Airwin S. Ditianquin, Dean, College of Business and Accountancy; Dr. Wilma G. Nonato, HTM Coordinator and HPC-MICEMGT Adviser; Mrs. Michelle Dona M. Lagman, HTM faculty member. With all the smiles on the attendees' faces, the webinar wrapped up at exactly 12:50 in the afternoon.
