Prior to beginning their Internships, each student received a Predictive Index Assessment from our Human Resources Team. The Predictive Index Assessment is an assessment all of our Team Members to-be take during the Hiring Process. It accurately measures canidates based on four Categories:


  • Dominance | The drive to exert influence on people or events


  • Extraversion | The drive for social interaction with others


  • Patience | The drive to have consistency & stability


  • Formality | The drive to confirm to rules & structure 



These categories help in providing us with the framework and ability to understand each individual Team Member’s personality and strengths. This in turn helps us set them up for success.

During their Internships, Students will gain lots of invaluable, hands-on learning experiences which we are confident will help the students in discovering a new passion and potential career path! We simply could not agree more with Cypress Run Education Center’s motto, ’Transforming Lives . . . Inspiring Change’. We are so grateful to have the opportunity to inspire our new future Hospitality Professionals!
