While studying at Georgian College, I learned that there are so many opportunities in the hotel and resort industry. My co-op placements in particular were an invaluable part of my education and development. They got me out into the real world, on both a professional and personal level. They also helped me make important contacts.Tony Manni, Director of Guest Services at Toronto International Film Festival
