    The CHEI Challenge: Unlocking Career Successis a national competition designed for students in hospitality related majors at universities or vocational schools in China. As the hospitality industry is growing rapidly in China, there is a great need for qualified talent. In this competition, students will face elaborate case scenarios in hospitality management developed by CHEI. Students are encouraged to use their soft skills to solve real-world problems by drafting a business plan, making a presentation or performing a role-play. Through advanced competence challenges, we aim to tap into the students’ potential and enhance their soft skills needed for successful careers in hospitality. Additionally, the competition involves teachers who will tutor the students. During the tutorship, more interaction between teachers and students will occur. Project-teaching methodology will be put into practice. Knowledge about soft skills will be enhanced. Confidence will grow within teachers. Students will be awarded with scholarships and connections with international mentors, as well as industry leaders, which will help pave their way to career success.
