Hospitality: A Good Bet in this Economy

The economy may be slowly getting better, but who knows if there will be any bumps. Finding work that will stand the ups and down can be hard; or something that you can go to work, go to school, and rise from within. One industry is showing very good signs of this and that’s Hospitality.

Restaurants make up 10% of the total workforce and for the fifth straight year it has grown (according to restaurant.org/forecast). Even with all the problems in the cruise industry, they are growing too. Hotels are moving at a slower pace, but it is still a climb. Overall, it had 5.3% growth in the last 6 months of 2013 (e-forecasting.com).

There are plenty of jobs out there, but you need to be willing to work from the bottom sometimes. The industry has jobs as waiters, barista, housekeeping, cooks, banquet servers, bellman, front desk, and security. Most places love to hire up from within the company. You don’t even have to have a degree to make your way to a management position.

Having a high degree or certification will help you move up and sometimes fast. Many of the major companies will even help you pay for schooling while you work for them. So you will be making money while saving money on going to school. It’s a win-win, because they are hoping that you will continue to work for them once you finish school.

Some companies also have learning curriculum that you can do right with them. There are an infinite amount of places to transfer to all around the world. Some of those can even externships that they sent you to for further training.

So if you are looking for a place that is hiring, might help you with paying for school, and plenty of chances to move up then hospitality is the place to go.
