CAIRO BOOKS's Description
The hospitality and tourism industry is vast and offers seemingly endless
professional opportunities. Written for those considering a career in the
field, this book explores each segment of the industry (lodging, foodservices,
recreation, meeting planning etc.) and the various positions within each
sector. Profiling hospitality leaders and rising stars, it shows readers
different career paths and helps them determine their own career goals and
aspirations. With a new chapter on entertainment, a new section on
condo-hotels, and revised coverage of healthcare foodservices, it keeps stride
with the fast-paced hospitality industry and helps readers discover their own
place within it. Answers questions such as: What segment(s) is/are of most
interest? How do I discover career opportunities? How do I get my first
professional position in the industry? How do I plan a longer-term career? What
are tactics to help assure success within my career? Do I want to work for
myself (be an entrepreneur) or for someone else (be an intrapreneur)? Do I want
to work domestically or in a position elsewhere in the global hospitality
industry (or both)? For those considering a career in the travel/tourism
industry or professionals already working in the industry.
