Briefs: Students placed

Siem Reap's Salai Bai hospitality training school reports that within three months of this year's graduation ceremony in September,  all 92 of its 2007-2008 intake students have found employment in the hospitality industry with the assistance of the organisation's three social workers. The average monthly salary for the new employees is US$71.57, with a minimum of $50 and a maximum of $125. Sixteen students have been recruited in the hotel where they interned, and most of the others found a job within a month. In total this year, 36 hotels and restaurants hired staff from Sala Bai. New changes at the school last year met with "some resistance, but were necessary", according to volunteer director Ampor Sam Oeun, adding that this  year's course is "proving to be calmer". The school said it had to reorganise and ramp up its professionalism to cater to a rapidly developing tourism sector.
