Our Partners

Seneca’s School of Tourism has been in existence for more than 35 years. During that time we have developed a strong relationship with industry, and employers recognize the value a Seneca graduate brings.

“We have the pleasure of partnering with Seneca College and regularly host Seneca students during their co-operative education placements," says Carol-Anne Williams, CHRP - Director of Human Resources, Sheraton Parkway Toronto North Hotel. "Even better, we have experienced great success in hiring several of these students upon graduation. Many of these former students are still with us, contributing to our success."

All of Seneca Tourism and Travel programs involve a field placement in the final semester. Here, students gain necessary, hands-on experience. In many cases, this field placement turns into full-time employment.

"These students come to us with realistic expectations of what our industry is about, and what it takes to be successful in hospitality," says Carol-Anne. "The professors are experienced hospitality professionals who know more than just theory - they are able to share their real life experiences and insights with the students, better preparing them for the "real" world. We have also tremendously improved our recruitment efficiency and costs by participating in the Career Fairs hosted by Seneca. The school does a terrific job in promoting the career fair to its students and graduates, and we have found them to be well attended by a qualified candidate pool.”
