Before you Manage in Hospitality

Going to school to better your life is always a good option. But there are ways to add to your success that doesn’t involve a classroom. A good way to do this is to work in entry-level positions while in school.

Not only will it be good to have a paying job (who can afford not to have one these days?), but it will give you invaluable experience. And experience is what employers are looking for. This is actually a good idea to do in any industry. How can you truly successfully manage in hospitality if you do not know or even emphasize with the workers under you?

So go out and be a maid, or work the bar. Make sure you try out different areas. See the different rhythms and what the inconsistencies are. Have an idea where communication is lost. Where the disconnect is between upper-management and the other workers. The only way to really know is to be in the middle of it.

Some workers will either not feel open enough to say anything or may have problems explaining. So having first-hand experience on how things work is indispensable. Who knows, you might even be hired on after school to the same company. That first job can help get you in the door and you will already have a relationship with the people to build on.

All of these are great reasons to get extra experience while in school. A last one that many do not think of is that you will already have a working relationship with the people under you. You already know who to trust and who slacks off. They were able to be friendly with you before you rose up and can better relate to you. They would most likely feel more open to come to you with problems. Most companies love seeing people within move up.
