What to do after I finish my Hotel Management Degree in India?

Graduating Hotel Management students are at cross roads when they come to their final year. Decision time – what should I be doing after I finish my HM Degree? Should I opt for F&B, for Front office, for Kitchen–Cookery or Bakery, for Housekeeping, for Sales etc? This is the crucial period of making the correct choice.

Generally during your industrial training you are able to make up your mind which area you want to specialize in. Some of you are fortunate enough to get good exposure in your choice of area, and hotel.

I am seeing a trend in which a few HM graduates are opting for Retail jobs. Ten years ago BPOs were the flavour of the month. Choice is yours – but remember if you joining Retail, BPO etc after your Hotel Management Degree/ Diploma it will be next to impossible to go back to the Hotel industry for jobs at a later stage. So think wisely and carefully. Whatever decision you make will impact your career growth.

Options for Hotel Management graduates is management trainees, supervisory trainees, Associates and direct jobs as Commis I/ II, F&B steward, F.O Assistant etc.

You also have the option to study a short – 1 to 2 years course abroad and then work abroad. By studying abroad you will be able to get a higher qualification and also a better job. Salary levels abroad are 3 to 10 times of what you will earn in India depending on which country you go to.
