A multi-billion dollar industry, hospitality employs nearly 9.5
million people in the U.S. alone. Faced with major impacts to the
industry – a retiring baby boomer demographic (with the means and
potential to travel) and a shrinking workforce – the potential for

opportunities are endless. A career in hospitality can provide
highly competitive wages in a fun and exciting environment.
