A career in hospitality can be both challenging and rewarding, but it is hardly ever boring. Workers in this field must be service-oriented and enjoy working with people. Although hospitality jobs are affected by the ups and downs of the economy, travel is commonplace in modern society and essential for many businesses, contributing to steady opportunities for hospitality workers. Hospitality looks at three core sectors of this industry: lodging, restaurants, and gaming. It explains how these businesses work, what opportunities they provide, and what it takes to succeed. Written in clear, accessible language, this new resource covers the full scope of hospitality careers, including tips for success, an in-depth glossary, and current and future trends.
