Your first written assignment will be an essay, written in APA format (If you are unsure of the proper paper format, refer to the template provided in the classroom or the resources in our online library). Your essay should be no more than 3 pages of written content, along with a properly formatted title page and reference page (5 pages total at most). An abstract should not be included. The content for your essay is described below.
There are many places one could work in the hospitality industry. Some of the segments that provide employment opportunities to hospitality graduates include lodging, food service, tourism, meeting and event planning, and the cruise line industry. Briefly describe each segment of the industry. Include industry resources to define the size or employment reach of the industry. Identify at least one example of a career that a hospitality management graduate could pursue in each one of the above five segments, preferably a role you would characterize as an ideal role for you. Each segment should be at least one structured paragraph in your paper, possibly using one paragraph to describe or define the industry segment and using another paragraph to focus on employment in that segment. Use transitions.
