“It so happens that we are looking for a sous chef, and one candidate turned up with the qualifications we wanted, including overseas experience,” said Rosma Ishak, who is The Legend Hotel Kuala Lumpur Human Resources assistant director.
The Legend Group of Hotels and Resorts is participating with The Star this week at the Star-Jobs h.e.l.p Career Centre at Studio V.
The group comprises several business units including The Legend Hotel, Grand Seasons Hotel and Legend Worldwide Holidays.
Rosma said the group had more than 50 vacancies waiting to be filled at management level and various departments.
“We have many vacancies for the front-line departments, such as guest service officers, concierges and telephone operators,” she said.
On what the group looked for in potential candidates, Rosma said those in the service line must possess a “can do” attitude and communications skills.
“As for those at managerial level, we want those able to contribute new ideas and know how to capitalise on the Internet as the trend is shifting towards this platform.”
She said the group was keen to hire local talents, but they must be willing to work shifts – a key element in the hospitality industry.
Rosma advised candidates to come with an open mind and be versatile.
“The job prospects are good. If employees are keen to try different departments, we are able to accommodate, provided they have a good working track record,” she said.
The Legend Hotel Kuala Lumpur will be conducting walk-in interviews from 2pm to 6pm tomorrow at Studio V.
Positions available are in accounts, catering sales, reservations, concierge, sales, security and safety, food and beverage and telemarketing.
To register, log on to www.star-jobs.com/help. Applicants are advised to bring along their resumes.
The Star-Jobs h.e.l.p or the Star-Jobs Hope and Employment Lifeline Project is aimed at assisting those seeking re-employment during these critical times.
