  • YJ visits Buxton

    A world of hospitality and culinary opportunities awaits students from the University of Derby, Buxton Campus. On the 10th February the Yummy Jobs Team attended a hospitality and culinary arts event at the University of Derby, located in the spa town of Buxton.  The YJ Team interacted with talented students looking to secure Summer Work and Travel placements for 2015 along with 12 month placement opportunities with some of the finest companies in the USA. Did we also mention that Royal Caribbean Cruise Line opportunities were also on show.  A world of opportunity awaits undergraduates and graduates with Yummy Jobs.

    During the event Nick from Yummy Jobs interacted with over 100 fantastic students looking to futher their hospitality career, whilst at the same time enhancing their education.  With the University of Derby's hospitality courses being ranked number one in the country by the guardian newspaper, there was no shortage of exceptional talent on show.

    Following on from the careers fair the Yummy Jobs Team was invited to host two guest seminars.  Obtaining a job and developing a career in the market today can be challening.  However the hospitality industry in the UK ranks as the 4th largest employer.  Yummy Jobs delivered two seminars that help a student identify their unique talent and win that Yummy Job.  Its all about brand you and how you market yourself to an employer.  What is your personal brand and what does it stand for?  Something to think about...

  • Cultural day

    Being an intern with Yummy Jobs has given me the opportunity to experience and explore London, the city that I adore. There are so many things to see, do and enjoy in London.

    I went on a cultural day to gain insight into the British culture and I can now say that I have learned a lot about the Britain, in particular London. The British culture is different than I had expected, not everyone is eating fish&chips and drinking tea all the time.
