To excel or not to excel; The choice is yours! The career is yours! The life is yours!



RIGHTFUL THINKING BUILDS GREAT CAREER


Why the F&B industry is termed as "recession-proof and ever booming"? The majority of people in Malaysia are food-lovers. Whoever they may be; everybody needs to eat. So, to build a career or a business out of the F&B industry is a "sure-win" provided you are professionally trained and make sure you develop a positive mental outlook with a clear perspective of the industry.

You may not take this opportunity as a challenge since many young people think and feel that serving people (especially in the F&B industry) is a low-grade job and is not likely to take it as a career. In actual fact, the ability to serve professionally with an open-heart earns the highest appraisal and dignity, thus develop a positive outlook and boost your self-esteem.

Career with the F&B industry can even be considered as "glamorous" especially if one is attached to conglomerates that operate or own international-class hotels, luxurious ocean liners, high-class entertainment establishments, fine-dining restaurants, etc. But ultimately, it is much more glamorous to be your own boss.

So wake up and get up; do something for yourself. You have nothing to lose but everything to gain. YOUR FUTURE IS ENTIRELY IN YOUR HANDS >>> Act Now !!!
