We want them to be bang on every time and ace any interview they go for. Here’s a list of our main goals. However, we don’t limit our program only into these.

Education & Employbility

The education you get cannot be useful unless it makes you employable. It is imperative for the management colleges, and other educational institutes too that they ensure employability when they finally declare them as graduates.

The job market has always been tremendously competitive. The arrival of Covid has blown the hinges of the business as usual door, challenges have been unprecedented even for basic survival in certain cases. As a result, the hospitality industry is at the crossroads poised to go under or emerge ahead of the curve. At this volatile moment, if you want to hit a job-interview for hotels or any other field of hospitality, you must be FLEXIBLE and be ready to LEARN, UNLEARN and RELEARN.

Employers responding to QS Global employer Survey have restated many times that, when they hire a candidate, they look for a particular “fit” sometimes not just for the job at hand but with the company’s values, ethos, culture and aspirations, knowing this is not always an easy task for incumbents. Apart from looking for a team player and motivator with adequate technical skills, they also seek intensity, optimism, energy, open-mindedness, sound communication, and most importantly, dexterity and readiness to undertake new challenges, initiate proper execution of plans and extract the desired outcome at any cost.

The 20-hour training program Ready To Hire we designed, fits the cogs in the best possible way to provide the aspirants with all the required knowledge and skill set. Once you get into ‘Ready to Hire’ you are certainly going to come out as ‘ready to be hired’.

How We Came Up With The Program

The four members of the core-team of incode, together having a composite experience of 100+ years in the industry, have realized a fact – that most training is theoretical and does not speak to the developing wants and needs of the industry. It is common consensus that more often than not job aspirants are clueless about the true nature and requirement of the corporate industry and are poorly armed to take up the vicarious challenges of an evolving industry. They go through case studies. They are introduced to various departments of the industry. But very rarely they are introduced to the practical challenges, every day hardships of the real workplace at their schools and colleges, until they step into the industry themselves and have a rude awakening of all sorts.
