7 Reasons to Work in the Hospitality Field


Vancouver has been globally renowned in the past decade for being one of the most livable cities in the world. This has caused an uproar in tourists for a city thriving in restaurant variety. The hospitality industry continues to expand in parallel with the rising population of “Rain City.” Have a look at 7 reasons why hospitality might be the right career path for you:

1.      Team Environment
Every task from the back of the house to the dining room is done as a team. Each step of the way is as important as the next and must be done thoroughly. Communication is key. If you are an extrovert and/or enjoy working with people, a career in hospitality may be for you!

2.      Creative Problem Solving
Each customer has their own preferences and it is your responsibility to figure out how to accommodate their need. Meeting consumers with the exact, same need is rare to find.

3.      Job Demand
Drinks and food are a mandatory resource for any well-being. Tourists need a place to stay, which means Vancouver hotels are always busy. Employment opportunities are huge in this market.

4.      Customer Service
Your job is to bring a smile to a person who may need it the most.  There’s no better satisfaction than making someone’s day.

5.      Flexible Schedule
Shifts come in every variation you can think of. This isn’t your typical 9-5 job and could be a great fit and very beneficial for you.

6.      People 
These positions require you to be around either customers or coworkers all the time. If being around people energizes you, you will thrive in the hospitality industry.

7.      Career Advancement
Responsibilities are in bunches and the quicker you adapt to them, the faster you can move up the ladder. With the right qualifications, you can be in management in no time.
