Careers advice for working in hospitalityI started not so long ago, 25 years ago in the industry as a Cormier du restaurant in France. And it is just amazing how much hotels have changed. You know when I started in the mid-80s which is almost 30 years ago, when I started in the mid-80s we were still working with physical keys and you know, racks behind the front desk. And look at hotels now. But the fundamentals haven’t changed, it’s a peoples’ business and this will remain a peoples’ business forever. But you know, and the qualities that are required to be successful in the hotel business, I think they have not changed neither, flexibility, enthusiasm for the industry, openness of mind, that remains, and I would recommend to every young person entering the industry or being in the industry to keep those qualities, because they are really important factors in having a successful career in the sector.
