February 16, 2016

Wor-Wic Community College and the Delmarva Chefs and Cooks Association are hosting a hospitality careers night on Tuesday, March 1, at 6 p.m., at the Ocean City Convention Center.

Designed for anyone interested in pursuing a career in the hospitality industry or those currently working in hospitality jobs who are looking for advancement, the event will include demonstrations and presentations by Wor-Wic faculty members who teach credit classes in hotel-motel-restaurant management and the culinary arts.

“Wor-Wic is a great place to start your career in the hospitality industry,” said Dr. George Ojie-Ahamiojie, department head and associate professor of hotel-motel-restaurant management. “Our credit program options provide students with entry-level skills for positions and to receive on-the-job training.

“Our programs are accredited by the American Culinary Federation Education Foundation’s Accrediting Commission,” Ojie-Ahamiojie added. “Students work in a modern teaching kitchen with commercial equipment preparing foods typically found in area restaurants.”

Ruth E. Baker, dean of the continuing education and workforce development division, will provide information on short, non-credit courses, such as bartending, culinary skills, hospitality law, safe food handling and swimming pool operations, which are offered throughout the year.

Richard C. Webster, director of admissions, and Deborah E. Jenkins, director of financial aid, will talk about enrolling and paying for college.
