With the opening of new hotels in the urban and semi-urban regions of the country, the job opportunities in the hotel industry are on the rise and the number of openings is going to increase in the future. The hotels hire more trained professionals as compared to the untrained ones as they are not willing to invest in the training of employees. The candidates are hired as executives in food and beverage, hotel accounting, front office, housekeeping and sales & marketing department in hotels. The freshers can be asked to work in any profile in the hotel like serving the customers or preparing the dishes. Therefore, the candidates need to be aware of the work profiles before choosing hotel management as a career.
