 Are you looking to upskill and start strong in your next chapter? Do you want to develop and update your resumé and interview skills before an entry-level job interview, but do not know where to start?


We are excited to partner with the City of Refuge in Atlanta to bring the Atlanta Steppingstone Hospitality program, for those looking to start and excel a career in the hotel industry in the Atlanta, GA area.

The initial 3-week program is free to the participant. Participants will get to learn about opportunities in the hospitality field, review and update their current resumé, and prepare them for the job interview and networking process.

This program is only open to Atlanta, GA residents at this time. 

Are you interested in entering the hotel and hospitality industry?

*When a participant lands a position at an area hotel, they will receive support from our Learner and Employer Success Coaches (with their supervisor) from the start of their employment, all the way toward and after their probationary period–usually  about 3 months on the job.


They will also provide guidance through their current job and suggest potential management opportunities throughout their career.

*Participants that complete and graduate from our program and clear onboarding requirements will have the opportunity to interview for a position at a hotel in the area. However, they will not be guaranteed a position.
