Confused by your career options? This useful little tool helps you find out exactly what you can do with your hospitality and tourism degree.



Having chosen to study hospitality and tourism, you might believe you’re destined to spend your professional life in a hotel, on an aeroplane, at a conference centre, at a tourist attraction, in a restaurant or on a cruise ship. However, a hospitality and tourism degree will actually provide you with a fantastic platform from which to enter a range of exciting sectors...



You might understand the intricacies of silver service, but here are some of the other skills that your hospitality and tourism degree might have helped you to develop…

Attention to Detail

You can spot a needle in a haystack. Sometimes you can even spot a specific needle in a massive stack of needles. You’re just that sharp.

Commercial Awareness

You know the business world like the back of your hand. You can look at situations from a commercial perspective and use your business know-how to influence success.

Communication (Oral)

All mouth, no trousers? Nope, but you can speak to people in a calm, concise and engaging manner.

Cultural Awareness

Chief amongst your skills is an understanding of other cultures and how they function in a multicultural world.

Customer Service

Friendly, attentive and efficient, you’re a customer service superhero. You can handle any situation. Incredibly busy? No sweat. Rude customers? Easy peasy. You’re always on top of your game.

Decision Making

If a decision needs to be made, you have the confidence to make it. You’re not hot-headed, but your middle name is ‘decisive’. When it’s crunch time, you’re always ready to do some crunching.


You don’t need somebody holding your hand the entire time. You can work on your own, use your initiative and keep yourself motivated.


You’re a shepherd, not a sheep. You can lead from the front and take charge when decisions need to be made.

Problem Solving

You’re a bit like Jimmy McNulty in The Wire. You might swear a lot, but you can solve problems quickly and logically without too much head-scratching.


You’re not an angry loner. Far from it! You have the ability to work effectively as part of a team.

Time Management

You may not have ‘Bernard’s Watch’, but you can manage your time effectively and meet deadlines without any last minute stress.
