Five tips on career development in the hospitality industry

The era of austerity has seen many organisations focus heavily on delivering value and reducing costs, often resulting in increased demand for skilled professionals. Despite economic uncertainty, attractive job opportunities are available to those looking for a career development in the Leisure industry.

V.Hospitality positions itself as a preferred partner for candidates willing to consider exciting opportunities worldwide on cruise vessels, hotels, resorts and yachts. Our expert and diverse recruitment team will assist you in sourcing that dream job and ensure your chances in securing an interview are optimised based on your specific situation. To facilitate this search, our team came up with 5 tips on career move: 

     1/ Assess your current situation - list your motivations to change jobs and what you expect of a new role. This should help you have a better idea of where you want to be and will ensure you get the most out of your job search. It is better to ask yourself the right questions before embarking on your job search rather than realise during interviews that the job you're applying for is not for you. 

     2/ Identify key strengths and skills gaps - Before interviewing, determine your core strengths and areas of development - and make sure you are able to support your claims. Candidates really need to demonstrate that they are a solid investment and that they are able to add value to an organisation. 

     3/ Polish your Resume: With employers browsing through thousands of applications, it is crucial for your CV to stand out if you want to make the cut. A resume will be the only point of reference for the employer when short-listing for an interview. It should provide an overview of your experience, qualifications and achievements in a way that will draw the employer's attention. 

     4/ Brush up on your interviews skills: Interviews can be stressful but preparation is key to success. Research the company, and present your experience and skills in a way that is aligned with the company culture, job specification, key skills and competencies required. 

     5/ Promote yourself through social networking: LinkedIn in particular is a potentially powerful tool for candidates. Your LinkedIn profile is likely to be the first place a future employer goes to, so ensure it is as complete as possible with appropriate referrals from colleagues or partners. Boost your online presence by joining groups and initiate discussions.
