letter and resume writing, dressing for success, interviewing skills, and HR
recruitment best practices, among others.
Training and Development Manager at Sandals Grande Antigua, Carlene Spencer,
who facilitated the first session, College to Career: Mapping a Path to Success
said,Our young students are very impressionable and open to learning about how
they can better prepare themselves for careers, or even university after leaving
school, and as industry professionals, it is our job to impart the knowledge and
share key information with them so they can better present themselves and have a
competitive edge in an ever-changing job world.
Joining Spencer on the facilitator line-up were Sandals Assistant Learning and
Development Manager Thalia Thomas, and Public Relations Manager Leon
