    More details please ladies
    what exactly would you want details on?

    Very good thread. I will be going off next year to start studies in Hospitality and Tourism Manangement. The industry sounds very exciting and I've always has a keen interest in anything related to travel. Will be doing two years at New Brunswick Community College in Canada and hope to transfer into University of New Brunswick to finish up a degree in the field. I know its a bit late to begin training in this field. I've just gathered enough money to go off to college so better late than never.

    It's never too late....I'm not exactly a spring chicken myself..(in my late 20's) and I'm just wrapping up my Bsc in Hotel and Restaurant Management.

    At first my concentration was in Meetings, Conventions and Event, then I switched to Food and Beverage. Now I'm in lodging.

    I like both lodging and F&B but F&B requires very long hours...... and lots of time on the feet. I did a management internship at Friday's last yr and though it was fun....it's just so darn tiring.

    Girl it's never too late. Some people don't even bother, at least you making an attempt. I wish you all the best. But the field is great, one of the best ways to advance in the field is networking. I am always collecting business cards and keeping in touch with people. What I love about hospitality is, you can work anywhere in the world in this business and it's not just sitting behind a desk there will always be something going on.

    That's one major reason why I chose the field.

    Val... it looks like I may wind up in F&B afterall....I was running from it but it's beckoning again.

    Your company is party of Compass Group right. I met and with and spoke at length to a couple people in Compass over the weekend. I also met with people from Sodexo, Aramark Brinker and Darden. Brinker and Darden deals with restaurants so I'm more leaning towards the other food service orgs specifically compass. There is so much room for growth; especially all the different companies within the group. I'm looking at Eurest, Restaurant Associates and Levy Restaurants.

    I haven't bailed on lodging yet..... I start training for the assistant GM position next week but it will be temporary since the current assistant GM is going on maternity leave soon. I am seizing the opportunity as it will be good experience for me.

    That Assist. GM training will be great!! Congrats and good luck. Compass is a great company and you're right there is a lot of room for growth within the company. I'm thinking about trying another segment Eurest or Flik, we'll see though. With the way the economy is going, everyone is cutting back on hiring, but i'll still try. F&B is great though, i done give up on lodging, but i shouldn't esp. since i hope to have my own eventually.
