Ahata: ‘1000 openings in tourism’

ORANJESTAD – There are more than 1000 openings in the tourist sector, said Rob Smith, director of Aruba Hotel and Tourism Association (Ahata) yesterday during a press conference about the big career-fair of this Saturday. This is also one of the reasons why this fair is being organized, said Smith.

Ahata wants to get an idea of how many potential candidates are on the local market. The organization also wants to get more insight on the number of qualified people that can work but have no job or are overqualified for their current function. Ahata wants to make the community and especially the youth aware of the fact that the hospitality industry has a lot to offer.

According to Smith, there are sufficient possibilities to move on financially as well as professionally. The most important message of Ahata is that Arubans distinguish themselves by their hospitality and that the passion to be helpful must be stirred again. “Helpfulness doesn’t mean that you must take up a submissive position”, emphasized Smith. The career-fair takes place this Saturday, May 17 in the YMCA in San Nicolas from 10:00 till 18:00. The next ones will take place in Santa Cruz and Oranjestad.
