Radek, what jobs can you get with a Hospitality Administration and Management Degree? I’m wondering, what can I do with a Hospitality Administration and Management Degree?
Imagine yourself giving a guided dolphin tour in the Atlantic, wearing an earpiece at a Vegas casino, playing concierge to the Americans in Paris, or working at Disneyland!
People are usually on the move, and this creates many job opportunities for hospitality management majors. They can work for hotels, airlines, cruise lines, bars, clubs, casinos, parks, health clubs, resorts, spas, conference centers, restaurants, and travel agencies. Some also go to work for state tourism departments.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, there won’t be much growth in job opportunities for lodging managers over the next few years. The hospitality industry took a hit from the recent recession. Many hotels are downsizing in service scope and personnel, and there is keen competition for the jobs that exist. However, there will be opportunities, as people are expected to leave the field, due to long hours and often stressful working conditions.
