“In an industry where there are so many diverse positions & properties in every aspect of hospitality for all kinds of personalities and skillsets, it is vital that the right fit position is secured. Many people end up in positions that lead to a cul-de-sac due to reactive career choice decisions rather than having, & sticking with, a clear strategy that will keep them on the path to success.”
