263-room new Crowne Plaza Hong Kong Causeway Bay, said, “We are pleased to make employment opportunity
available to the local community by opening doors for experienced
hoteliers and fresh graduates who are interested in the industry.”

candidate had a chance to take part in individual and group
interviews. Through competency-based Q&A sections, group
discussions, interactive games and role plays, interviewers
determined who can attend the second interview by the end of June.
