Hotel Manager


There is an inverse relationship between the need to bolt down items in the hotel rooms and how much education and experience are needed. In other words, the swankier the hotel, the better the qualifications you will need to manage it.

If you are shooting for a managerial position in the Stankton otor Inn (the “M” fell off the sign) where the only items not bolted down are the roaches, you probably won’t even need a high school diploma to run the place.

On the opposite end of the spectrum, large high-class joints with spas, infinity pools, and restaurants that sell very small plates of food for very high prices will most likely require that you have a Bachelor’s degree in Hospitality or Hotel Management and have some years of experience to bring to their operation.
