6 Best Career Options after Hotel Management

Most of the students think that after completing the hotel management course, the only career path is they can join only in the hotel industry. This means they only can work in hotels. But this is totally wrong information.

There are lots of career options after hotel management. And they can also apply for government jobs after a hotel management degree.

Not only that, but there are also many career options for hotel management students abroad. The minimum qualification which is needed for hotel management is 12th(10+2). This means students can start their careers in hotel management after the 12th.

Now I discuss different career options after doing hotel management with real examples.

Different Career Options after Hotel Management

These are multiple career opportunities after hotel management:

1. Retail Sector

After completing the hotel management course, you have career opportunities in the Retail sector. This means you can apply in the Retail sector.

For example:- You can join KFC, Dominos, Pizza hut, Shopping Malls, or any other retail sector.

2. Cruise Line Job

After completing the hotel management, you can also apply for the cruise line job. The cruise line means any ships. But especially for the cruise line, you have your minimum of 2 years of experience in the Hotel industry.

After 2 years of experience, you can apply for a Cruise ship job. And on the cruise line, the starting salary is very high.

Example:- 40k to 80k per month in Indian currency. It varies from ship to ship.

3. Cabin Crew Job

After hotel management, I think this is one of the best choices. Because Cabin crew jobs are very nice with a bright future.

All boys and girls can apply for the cabin crew job after complete hotel management. But especially girls can apply for an Air hostess. So I think this is a great career option with a high amount of salary expectations.

4. Government Job

Yes, after graduation in hotel management, you can easily apply for government jobs. You can apply to any government banks, railways, or any other government sector. But it is not for diploma holders.

5. Corporate Sector

For hotel management graduates, here is another career option which is the corporate sector. You can easily apply to this sector after graduation. So this is also a good job option.

6. Five Star Hotel

Those who are interested to join the hotel industry after complete hotel management so can join any 5-star hotel.

But I always suggest you work in a branded or chain group of hotels. Because this is better for your future. You can build your career very effectively.

Branded or chain group of hotels like Marriott group of hotels, Oberoi group of hotels, Taj group of hotels, Hilton group of hotels, ITC group of hotels, Accor group of hotels, or any big chain group of hotels.
