In response to the current hospitality employment crisis, Restaurant Hospitality Institute has announced a unique partnership with Southern Nevada’s Chosen For Success to retrain and find jobs for men and women. The first graduation and job fair for the RHI/CFS students will take place this upcoming Friday, May 28 at 2pm, with several prominent local restaurants interviewing the newly qualified workers.
Participants in the program take a course combining Emotional Intelligence with Hospitality 101 which includes elements such as:
- Communication (verbal and non-verbal)
- Physical skills (Carrying trays, clearing plates, answering phones, etc…)
- Restaurant history and lingo
- Food education
- Revenue generating
- Sanitation and safety
All graduates receive both a Nevada state approved Alcohol Awareness card and SNHD food handler’s card, qualifying them for employment in any food & beverage service (this greatly expedites eligibility).
Additionally, those restaurants that hire the graduates will be eligible to qualify for paycheck reimbursement for the new hires via the State of Nevada.
“We are absolutely thrilled to present these challenged young men and women with this opportunity, while helping to fill some desperately needed positions with motivated new hires,” said Steele.
