The Hospitality Industry

Myths:  The only jobs available in the Hospitality Industry are waiters or cooks; part-time jobs; it is not a career; the industry has limited growth potential.

Facts:  The Hospitality Industry has experienced tremendous growth and currently ranks as the world’s largest industry and employer. Today it is much more than hotel and restaurant businesses; it includes cruise liners, sport arenas and entertainment centres, casinos, golf and other club management, event planning, catering, bed and breakfast options, game lodges, holiday resorts and many more similar businesses and establishments.

We believe that the wide spectrum of careers the Hospitality Industry has on offer, can satisfy almost everyone’s aspirations to achieve success in their field of expertise.
