The hospitality sector has grown as an off shoot of the boom in the tourism sector.
In India it is predicted that nearly 2,50,000 rooms would be required by 2020 to accommodate tourists and business travellers.
The recession has acted as a spoil sport and this sector has taken a big hit.
As companies are reeling under financial constraints, business travel numbers have dropped considerably. Despite that, the hospitality industry will grow but at a slow rate.
Opportunities exist in the following areas for graduates in this industry:
Management trainees, guest relation executive, house keeping management, flight kitchens, fast food chains, institutional catering, faculty in hotel management institutes, tourism resort & properties.
This sector also offers ample scope for self employment and consultancy services after you gain some years of experience in the industry
