How to future-proof your hospitality career
In this current climate, many are unsure how to choose a study program, or even which career path to follow. As a leading voice in culinary arts and hospitality management education for over 30 years, Le Cordon Bleu Australia has some helpful tips to begin future-proofing your hospitality career.
1. Listen to industry experts
One way to future-proof your career is to listen to the experts - stay informed, learn what’s happening in your sector, know the current challenges, and find out how businesses are innovating in response. Industry Webinars are an excellent way to stay informed and are offered by many reputable organisations, industry bodies and associations.
Le Cordon Bleu Australia is presenting a series of five Industry Voices Webinars where you can hear from a panel of leading hospitality experts and discover how each sector of the hospitality industry is responding to the pandemic and what hospitality might look like in the future.
2. Enhance your credentials
Another strategy involves researching the in-demand skills in your sector and identifying where you may need to upskill. Next, find an accredited education provider to enhance your credentials and increase your employability.
It is predicted that when tourism resumes normal trade, the post-pandemic demand for skilled hospitality professionals will result in a global recruitment drive. The advantage of studying at Le Cordon Bleu Australia is you gain an internationally recognised qualification from an industry respected brand that allows you to work anywhere in the world.
It’s an excellent time to upskill or schedule in some professional development, so you’ll be ahead of the game and ready to start your dream job or seize that long-awaited promotion. Le Cordon Bleu Australia has extended its special offer of 50% Scholarships on a range of Online Higher Education Certificates, with potential pathways to on-campus business degrees.
3. Be tech-savvy
It’s smart to stay across the latest technology and social apps - not only those used in restaurants, hotels, cafes & kitchens - but the social platforms your customers will be using.
If you don’t have a professional social media presence yet, you could create a Linkedin page to network with industry and attract future employers. Linkedin also has short courses for those wanting to develop creative skills, such as photography. If you want to position yourself as an hospitality influencer, you could start a blog (it's easy to set up on Wordpress) or share your thoughts in a simple vlog.
