Tourism is one of the largest industries in the world and is growing rapidly. Every year, millions of people travel across the world to take a trip to a new place with a new culture, environment and many more. India has something to offer to every tourist coming to visit this country. India has been a popular destination for travelers and has seen a rise in foreign tourist arrivals. 

In terms of physical landscapes, languages, demography, and so on, India is one of the most diverse countries on the planet. Mountain ranges (Himalayas), Ghats (western and Eastern Ghats), beaches (7516 km of coastline), tropical rainforests; plateaus are just glimpses of its rich geography. The growth of the hospitality industry in India exceeds the growth of other key sectors such as financial, construction, business services, etc.

 

How big is the Hotel industry in India?

The estimates show that the tourism industry in India is projected to reach USD 125 billion worth by the year 2027. In 2020, the tourism industry provided jobs to around 39 million people accounting for 8% of total jobs in the country. This number will reach 53 million by 2029. A majority of these jobs in the tourism sector are in the field of hospital management. 

 

How does tourism influence the hospitality industry?

It’s no secret that the tourism and hospitality sector are dependent on each other. The tourism industry requires the hospitality industry to thrive as it survives by accommodation, leisure, food provided by the hospitality industry.

The hotel industry is booming especially due to increased domestic and international tourism in India. As tourists visit for luxury, relaxation, recreation, and religious reasons, the hotel industry is bound to grow majorly in upcoming years. The hotel sector is full of opportunities for those who want to make a career in hospitality management. 

 

What are the job opportunities in hospitality management?

Due to a huge variety of career options and immense growth potential, hotel management courses are a popular career choice in India. The sector offers unlimited career paths both in and outside the country. The dearth of opportunities after hotel management courses are as follows:

  • Hotels, Resorts, Spas
  • Restaurants and Takeaways
  • Bars, Clubs, and Pubs
  • Casinos
  • Cruise Ships
  • Airline Kitchens
  • Fast food chains

 

Following are the various job positions in the hospitality management industry:

  • Front-office Manager
  • General Hotel Manager
  • Food & Beverage Manager
  • Accommodation Staff
  • Housekeeping Staff and Manager
  • Bartender
  • Catering Manager

 

What are the key skills needed to be in the hospitality and tourism industry?

While you learn hard skills such as managing teams, financial analysis, and accounting during the hotel management course, you must build some key soft skills that every hotelier should have.

1. Being people-oriented

You'll be working with people for people as a hotelier. Every hotelier's top aim is to work with teams and provide the best hospitality services to their customers. As a result, having a people-oriented approach is critical.

 

How to Incorporate a People-Centered Approach in your attitude

  • Understand what guests expect and always deliver beyond their expectations
  • Stay empathetic and compassionate, no matter what
  • Make sure you interact with your team members and understand their strengths.

 

2. Become a fluent communicator

A hospitality career entails dealing with guests day-in and day-out. It's also critical that you cultivate a fluent and engaging communication style as part of your personality. Body language, posture, and, of course, words are all used by hotel managers to greet and communicate. You must work on all these basic elements to improve your communication skills.

 

How to Become a Good Communicator

  • Work on a straight posture and positive body language
  • Develop your vocabulary and language skills, if English is not your first language or you aren’t fluent in it
  • Memorizing people’s names and their preferences play a great role in positive communication
  •  

3. Multi-tasking is the key

You'll have to manage personnel, finances, and guests all at the same time if you work in the hospitality sector. While the hotel management sector pays well, it also requires a lot of effort. As a result, a hotelier must be able to multitask and handle problems.

How to Improve your Multi-Tasking Skills

Doing internships throughout your graduation is the ideal way to adopt a multi-tasking strategy. Internships and part-time jobs will help you learn the ropes.
