If you consider yourself a ‘’people person’’ this is one of the best places you can ever work in. the opportunities they present are huge and allows you to have fun while you are at work and this is not something everybody can tell about themselves now is it? If you are ever considering pursuing a career in hospitality I would say go for it!
It can be one of the most rewarding experiences you will encounter because it lets you interact with people from around the world and be able to share the tales of their journey and stories from their home land. Yes we can get all that form a quick click on the internet but can in really hold a candle to being narrated to in person?
At present your passion alone will not qualify you to bag your dream job. Along with your love for the job you need to be able to justify yourself on paper and in your grooming too. In other words you need to go get your diploma! and clean up your act. There are many institutions and many courses to choose from. You can either opt for a general diploma in hospitality or pursue a more concentrated course such as a front office training course that will help you choose the specific sector that you wish to be a part of.
Hospitality offers perks not only in terms of experiences and happenstances, from what I hear the pay-out is not half bad either. Irrespective of what the incentive structure of your employer is you are sure to receive a handsome allowance from the happy vacationers that you will provide your service to. At a 9-5 desk job the only big bang to look forward to is the end of the year party at the office or the annual dinner dance that is held only because it is mentioned in the office calendar. But with a job in the hospitality life is a constant roller coaster of adrenaline rushing flow of events that you will surely enjoy. Furthermore this line of job most often takes care of three of your most important necessities. Food, drink and lodging. With that expense taken off your shoulders is there really anything else that would keep you awake at night?
Hotels offer their staff hostels or staff quarters that allows you to commute comfortably to and from work and also gives you the opportunity to interact with your colleagues and build a good rapport with them.
