Explore careers in the culinary, tourism and hospitality industries with a behind-the-scenes look at one of Oregon’s premier hotels. Students will connect with inspiring professionals, see the teamwork needed to run a major hotel, experience hands-on culinary learning in the state-of-the-art kitchen, and learn about turning your first job into a well-paying and meaningful career in food, tourism, sales, finance, business and more.
