Why choose a job in Hospitality?
Did you know that the travel and tourism industry is the 21st century’s fastest growing industry? So jobs in hospitality abound and choosing hospitality and tourism jobs even in shaky economic climates like the recent credit crunch is relatively secure.
The lodging industry can be traced way back in history, and will surely be present in the far future to come. Nearly 2000 years ago, nomads and travellers used to “check-in ” at inns and huts. So not only is this industry evolving, but with vacant rooms it brings vacant job posts as well.
Hospitality requires you to work in a multi-cultural environment both customers and staff come from all corners of the world. They bring along with them their own language, cultural background and ideas on how to efficiently work within the industry.
The hospitality industry allows you to develop yourself – professionally and as a person. Various characteristics are required for working in a hotel, these range from soft-skills such as organization, communicating or working in a team; to more technical competences such as serving, revenue management, accounting and facilities management.
Hospitality so much is simple: it’s fun – and it’s enjoyable.
