The hospitality industry has been one of the hardest hit by the coronavirus pandemic, so why would anyone consider studying it now?

IMPACT Community Services trainer Wendy Carter said as the industry opened back up to a different normal there was the possibility of new job opportunities. 

Wendy will start IMPACT’s newest hospitality course on Monday, June 29 and already there’s been strong interest with a healthy number of early registrations.

With restrictions slowly relaxing for bars and restaurants, the industry is starting to show signs of new life.

It’s going to be a very different future for the sector and those workers equipped with the skills and knowledge to work in this new COVID hospitality world will have a significant advantage.

Wendy said the upcoming course would arm students not only with hospitality expertise but increased food hygiene skills which are crucial in the industry’s new landscape.

Here are 5 reasons to study hospitality at IMPACT Community Services, which is a Registered Training Organisation (RTO: 0115)

  1. Travelling opportunities

Any town or city in the world that has a restaurant, a hotel, or a pub, will need hospitality workers. A hospitality qualification will enhance the skills you can offer to potential employers anywhere in the world.

  1. No two days are the same

Because no two customers are the same, Monday’s work might be completely different from Friday’s. You’ll interact with new people, be exposed to different people and learn to adapt quickly.

  1. Fast-paced

Many hospitality positions demand fast responses, quick thinking and lots of movement. If you want a job that will keep you on your toes, allow you to develop critical thinking and problem-solving skills, look no further.

  1. Flexibility

Throw away the 9 to 5. Say hello to rotating shifts. If you want to study, you can often work evenings, leaving days free to learn.

  1. Cross-over skills

The ability to work with a team is a necessary skill for most jobs. Being able to act professionally while under stress and showing adaptability to new situations are highly respected traits. Because these skills are paramount to the hospitality industry, if you decide to try your hand at something else, you’ll already have a great skill-set to take with you.

IMPACT Community Services' Certificate III in Hospitality (SIT30616) course begins June 29.
