There are many ways to find work in foreign countries and lucky for us, majority of the work available is in hospitality. No matter what country you decide to follow your dreams in, here are things to consider when working abroad.
One of the challenges that hospitality students can face is finding work experience to put on their CV, while studying or after graduating.
Often employers look for candidates with strong work experience, not only that, but it's experience that leads to improved skills and increased employment opportunities, despite years of study.
Here are five ways to gain work experience in hospitality as a student.
Many of us have friends who are studying to be doctors, lawyers, marketers, or what’s considered ‘respectable’ jobs. Although the hospitality industry doesn’t always require formal studies to land a job, there are many universities out there who offer programs in Hospitality Management.
If hospitality is something that you enjoy and are passionate about, it should be what motivates you to pursue and study it. The question then becomes, “Should you study hospitality management at university?” The short answer is yes! However there are some questions you should ask yourself first.
We would love your help! Starting today, we are aiming to create the longest list of hospitality schools in the world. Can you help us do it?
Why are we building the longest list of hospitality schools in the world?
We want to provide a handy resource to students who are thinking of studying hospitality in another country. We know that many people studying hospitality are interested in travel and would be keen to attend a hospitality school overseas.
Also, no-one else has done it and we love to be groundbreaking at Typsy!
Today, many hospitality schools are embracing blended learning. For example, William Blue College of Hospitality Management in Sydney offers online and on-campus study options for most of their degrees, as well as a blended-learning model that allows students to mix their online and on-campus study.
The Glion School of Hospitality and Business in the UK and Switzerland also offers blended learning options to their students. The university offers an MBA in hospitality that can be studied full-time on campus, completely online, or as a blended option that alternates between campus-based and online courses.
