Reviews of BS in International Hospitality Management graduates:

list bulletWhy did I choose International Hospitality Management: I chose this course because I love attending to the needs of other people and I like the ambiance in the hospitality industry.

list bulletAbout my college education: Over-all, studying this course is enjoyable for me because I really like the course; I found my core subjects and major subjects interesting because I learn so many things, particularly in "hazards in food analysis" and "personality development in the hospitality industry ". It was really interesting because I have learned a lot that made me more knowledgeable.

However, there are some subjects whom I found boring like P.E. Because I'm not into sports or other activities which require so much energy. I found it boring since I don't have the capability of being an athlete and it was hard for me to play a sport or anything requiring energy. I remember one of my PE class, I failed in one of my activities. However, with the help of my fellow students, I passed!

To succeed in this course with flying colors, one must obtain the right amount of self-discipline, patience, and of course, hospitality. You should keep your feet on the ground, remember guests will always be right. You are going to guide them so you must follow them and respect them in order to succeed this course. Attend the whole class. Even if you feel like you will just die if you sit there any longer. Even if you feel your brain start to ooze out the side of your ear. Get involved on campus. All work and no *productive* socializing is boring.

list bulletMy current job: Hotel General Manager. Managing staffs in a Hotel.

list bulletAm I using what I learned in college: Yes. I used all the learning I gathered especially the proper way on how to handle peoples or guests. The proper ways of how to treat them good and how to comply with all their needs with a great satisfaction. I am applying the knowledge I have regarding criticisms, on how to handle it and how to understand the guest's behavior. It was hard to handle them, some are very offending when saying opinions and everything but thanks for my professors they taught me well how to get along with it.

list bulletHow long did it take to find a job: It took just a month to find a job after graduation.

list bulletDo I recommend studying International Hospitality Management: Yes. Employment opportunities are very wide. Hotels, resorts, and restaurants are opening up everywhere.

As for interesting career, for as long as you love what you do, it will always remain interesting and fulfilling to you.

Salary level ranges from 20,000-30,000 starting not to mention the privileges and tips from the guests.

list bulletAdvice to people who are thinking of studying this course: I advice them to really think about it, if they easily get affected with criticisms might as well not take this course because you will receive a lot of criticisms from guests in this industry.

However, if you really love assisting other people, then this is the right course for you and you don't have to worry so much, just always love what you are doing. You can never finish a job or task with satisfaction if you do not like what you're doing. You must decide wisely if you really want this course because this is not as easy as you think.
