Despite Tough Economy, Local Wine School Finds Jobs for Graduates

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Denver, CO-November 2009. Despite a tough economy, graduates of college-level courses at the International Wine Guild are finding jobs.

Since September 2008, the International Wine Guild has helped 90% of its graduates currently not in the trade acquire employment in the Food & Beverage Industry. The 90% represents those actually seeking employment, not including those students who were already employed in the industry.

"The vocational training we're receiving through International Wine Guild courses is superior to any other program in the country," said Brandy Mannix, who recently acquired Guild Master Candidate Status by passing a rigorous blind tasting and completing over 360 class-room hours of course work. "The reality that a vocational school of this quality is right here in Denver is an opportunity for anyone looking to get into the trade, or move up in their current position." Ms. Mannix is currently employed with Walters Distributors.

The wine industry as a whole is embracing the truism that "flat is the new up", despite downturns in the ultra high-end wine market, the industry has a 2% growth rate. "The fact that wine enthusiasts seeking formal wine training are finding job placement in this economy is something for us to be proud of," said Claude Robbins, president of the International Wine Guild.
