TOHOLOGY continues discussing hospitality industry careers. What are the candidate requirements at luxury hotels at the Canadian chain Four Seasons? What is more important, specialised education or experience? We asked these questions to Tatiana Kadykova, Assistant Human Resources Manager at Four Seasons Hotel Lion Palace St. Petersburg, the opening of which is scheduled for mid-2013.
TOHOLOGY: As a representative of the hotel, please describe a potential candidate for your company.

That is why we attach utmost importance to personal qualities, attitude to work, to guests and colleagues, willingness to learn and grow, ambition to do their best at the job – everything we call the passion for service.
TOHOLOGY: In your opinion, what is more important: specialised education or experience in the industry?
Tatiana Kadykova: Professional hotel education in Russia is still very young, so many employees are trained on the job. Of course, it is wonderful when a candidate possesses the specialised education, it simplifies the process of entry into the profession.
