The hospitality and tourism industry is vast and offers seemingly endless professional opportunities. Written for those considering a career in the field, this book explores each segment of the industry (lodging, foodservices, recreation, meeting planning etc.) and the various positions within each sector. Profiling hospitality leaders and rising stars, it shows readers different career paths and helps them determine their own career goals and aspirations. With a new chapter on entertainment, a new section on condo-hotels, and revised coverage of healthcare foodservices, it keeps stride with the fast-paced hospitality industry and helps readers discover their own place within it.  Answers questions such as: What segment(s) is/are of most interest? How do I discover career opportunities? How do I get my first professional position in the industry? How do I plan a longer-term career? What are tactics to help assure success within my career? Do I want to work for myself (be an entrepreneur) or for someone else (be an intrapreneur)? Do I want to work domestically or in a position elsewhere in the global hospitality industry (or both)?  For those considering a career in the travel/tourism industry or professionals already working in the industry.
