6 Different Types of Hotel Management Jobs

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

There are lots of job 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 that is needed for hotel management is 12th (10+2). This means students can start their careers in hotel management after the 12th.

Different Types of Jobs in Hotel Management

List of multiple career opportunities after hotel management:

1. Retail Sector Job

After completing the hotel management course, you will have career opportunities in the retail sector. This means you can apply to the retail industry.

For example, you can join KFC, Domino’s, Pizza Hut, shopping malls, or any other retail sector.

2. Cruise Line Job

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

After two 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 Jobs

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

All boys and girls can apply for the cabin crew job after completing hotel management. But especially girls can apply for an air hostess. So, I think this is a good job option with a high salary expectation.

4. Government Job

Yes, after graduation in hotel management, you can easily apply for Government jobs. You can apply to any government bank, railway, or other government sector. However, this option is not available for diploma holders.

5. Corporate Sector Job

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 after hotel management.

6. Five-Star Hotel Job

Those who are interested in joining the hotel industry after completing a hotel management degree. A 5-star hotel is the best option for them.

But I always suggest you work for 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 the 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.
