The Hospitality industry all over the world has always looked to people who are the best match to the job profile available. It has always come forward with the most lucrative benefits for people with the required skill sets.
Although the hospitality industry exists with many faces and facets, the people requirements today have undergone certain fundamental changes. Therefore the earlier norms for and Degree/Diploma in Hotel Management for a position are now considered as incomplete as far as the skill sets required are concerned. Institutes which have prestigious resource bases in the industry alone mould their programs in a way to match the skills and keep the campus recruitment figures healthy.
With recession looming over the world and over the entire gamut of industries and enterprises, job profiles are becoming more complex. A single specialization is almost out of circulation where a lucrative job profile is offered.
In the hospitality industry of yesteryear, the fields of Hotel Management, Travel and Tourism and Event Management were individually able to provide a lucrative job to a candidate. In the present scenario of cut throat competition increased expectations and dwindling profit bases, the managements of many world renowned establishments are revising the job profiles in favor of multi skilled employees.
Although multi-skilling was a thought propagated by the International Labor Organization about a couple of decades back, no one thought that the time had come for taking the approach to our training schools. It was ITM, who took the initiative and naturally the students are in demand within a wider spectrum of opportunities.
