Be The Future of Hotels
No matter what hotel you stay in, be it the Hilton or the old local hotel at the corner of the rugged town you grew up in, the service you receive is what makes all the difference. A person residing in a hotel, regardless of the purpose, is always seeking optimum service. This service is only created through passionate staff that has the sufficient education and experience needed.
Why Do Students Shift From Hotel Management Field?
Students with an ambition to reach high career positions in hotels are often disappointed after graduating. Academic institutions nowadays provide students with the bare minimum allowing them to graduate with some to no experience whatsoever. When students are pushed into the real world, they have no real practice and thus their job opportunities are quite low. In many cases, students even decide to change their whole field.
The Hotel School
Picture yourself managing a 5-star hotel whether internationally or in your home country. Picture yourself seeing the smiles of the people leaving happy after the services you helped create. Reaching your career goals in Hotel Management and Hospitality is now made possible with The Hotel School. It is a dynamic and diverse academic institution that provides the student with both the relevant education required and the experience needed to make them on top of the job market.
The tourism sector is on an escalating growth. According to a report by the Australian Bureau of Statistics in the “Tourism Research Australia”, there will be a significant increase in demand for highly qualified professionals in the sector. This is where The Hotel School will make the change. Graduates of an institution that is bringing textbooks to life will be the change in the quality of hospitality and tourism services provided in the future. The Hotel School has both academic excellence and industry connections.
