Industry Partners Sought for LEI Career Development Program

This April, ClimbHI will be kicking off the fourth year of its Hospitality Career Development LEI (Leadership, Exploration and Inspiration) program on Maui, Oahu, Kauai and Hawaii Island. It is anticipated that LEI 2015 will expose 870 students, chaperones and mentors, to the visitor industry, and provide valuable insight into hospitality career opportunities.  

“We are excited to partner with this program again and showcase the hospitality industry to a new generation,” said Jadie Goo, HTA tourism brand manager in charge of career development. “Programs like LEI give industry businesses a chance to inspire and inform students about the benefits of working in the tourism sector, and the various career paths that they can consider.” 

The day-long program is filled with exciting activities including hospitality and cultural training workshops, site visits to various hotels, and a college and career fair. 

Industry partners who are interested in participating can sign up for a table at the career fairs on Maui and Oahu by April 1st.
