In a recent release, the American Hotel & Lodging Association (AH&LA) publicized a new report that found hotel-industry jobs offer significant upward mobility and long-term career opportunities. The report found that hotel employees quickly earn promotions and assume upper management positions, and often enjoy higher job satisfaction levels.
According to surveys conducted for the report, more than 50 percent of general managers and hotel executives began working in the industry as entry-level employees. The AH&LA emphasizes that hotel employees who move into salaried positions also stay with the hotel longer, creating less turnover and more stability in the industry. Based on robust travel predictions, the AH&LA also expects that the hotel industry will be able to keep creating high-potential jobs.
