Hospitality is a booming business, with people now travelling more than they ever have before. And yet, in spite of this, employers seem to be having trouble finding employees with the qualifications needed to work in this booming industry.
Getting a degree in hospitality may sound a bit strange, but think about it this way: taking holidays is something everyone enjoys. Even though the hospitality industry is perpetually flourishing, there’s a shortage of qualified hotel managers, chefs and other staff. People are always going to need hotels and restaurants, so jobs in this field are forever in-demand. In fact, jobs in this industry are expected to triple by 2020!
