GURUGRAM, DECEMBER 14: Indian School of Hospitality hosted a group of counsellors from across the country where they discussed about “Future of Hospitality and the potential opportunities it holds for young aspirants.”

Addressing the gathering, Dilip Puri, Founder & CEO at Indian School of Hospitality stressed on the need to demystify the hospitality sector. Elaborating about the scope which the hospitality sector has, Puri stated, “People just think about it as hotel management which means that you are restricting  yourself to just the hotel industry.” He added that that students who pursue education in the hospitality sector, they are being prepared to get job in other spheres also.

Today, the students who have studied hotel management, they are being prepared to get jobs in other sectors also such as banking, real estate, so on and so forth.

During the discussion, the need was felt to create awareness among people about changing the perception with regard to those who pursue hotel management. Puri was of the view that the conventional viewpoint about hotel management is that students will work in the hotel industry, they would be underpaid and would have long hours of work. He stressed on the need to change this perception and added that career opportunities are available in other spheres of life for those who have pursued hotel management.
