CAREERS IN HOSPITALITY
Many times, people think of jobs in the hospitality industry as temporary, a stopover for employees who are on their way to something more long-term. And the truth is, jobs in the hospitality sector are great for those circumstances—for students, for those who are transitioning from one opportunity to another and as a way for people to make extra money.
But think about this—hospitality industry is also a promising industry in which build a career. Entry level jobs are almost always available in restaurants, hotels, attractions and with transportation providers. Plus the hospitality industry has a reputation for recognizing talent, ability and commitment and creating ways for employees to advance up the ranks. As a matter of fact, many mid-level and upper-level managers started in front-line jobs, as servers, front desk staff, customer service reps and more.
If you are trying to find out what career is right for you or if you have already been working and are considering a career change, think about hospitality. It may be just the boost you need.
