“ Working in a hotel does not consist of one job. People have a very narrow view, they think reception is the only option in hospitality and don’t see that the industry is 300%, 400% bigger; the possibilities are endless from IT to finance, from reception to sales manager. That was when I realised I had many paths to choose from.”- Madis Laid, General Manager, Estonia
“Always be curious, that was the key to my career. I wanted to know more and more about every department and that gave me the chance to progress because you have the bigger picture in your mind. Challenge yourself every day and be brave because the opportunities are there if you are in the right time and right place. If you have flexibility and you are dynamic, hospitality can give you lots.”- Noemi Maddalena, Multi Hotel Reservation and Front Office Manager, UK
“I think hospitality is the best industry in the world, it opens many doors; you can jump from one department to another, front to back of house, housekeeping, etc. As an 18-year-old, I became much prouder of my achievements; and in college, there were little milestones that gave me confidence and belief that I could be successful.”- Craig Burrows, Executive Head Chef, United Kingdom
“ You don’t know what doors are going to open, what opportunities you are going to be presented with, and what you will end up having a love and passion for. So many areas you may not even initially associate with hospitality.”- Meena Flora, Commercial Content Manager, United Kingdom
“ We have numerous openings in the hotel industry, in back office, front office, or if you like working with numbers, you are technical or a chef, all personalities can work in hospitality because it is so diverse. Look around, have fun and see what suits you best – you can take all kinds of steps within the industry and your career, without having to leave to discover new things. And if you like all of them, become a General Manager.”- Vanessa van der Vaart, General Manager, The Netherlands
“To someone who is looking for work, there is a great variety of jobs, not just front desk, restaurant or hotel; and hospitality is globally very well connected, so if moving to other countries is your goal, it is probably the best sector to go to..”- Michel Butor, Deputy General Manager, Switzerland
