Being passionate about your career will definitely help you stand out in a highly competitive job market. In challenging times, it is ever so important to steer away from the mediocre and show passion and hunger for success!
According to one study in the US, 70% people are unhappy at work. On average a human being spends practically half of their life working. There is a saying that if you can find a job that you love to do, you will never work a day in your life! So true! All great leaders have vision but it is the passion for the vision that motivate people to follow and engage with them.
A great way to build passion for the hospitality industry is to visit and observe hotels, schedule informational interview with people working in the industry and listen and interact with guest speakers at your college. Talk about their careers, ask them how they got to where they are! People love talking about themselves and will remember you for giving them the opportunity. Attending industry events, volunteering and having a mentor can also help develop passion for the hospitality industry. At job interviews you can show passion by thoroughly researching the company and the position. Having a set of questions to ask the interviewer will also highlight your passion. By Teg Brar
