Career option after Hotel Management

In the last article we had a glance as to why one should select Hotel Management as a career option. First of all this is a very fresh and creative career option. After graduation in Hotel Management one can go for their career in hotels across the world for their career enhancement. Airlines, clubs, cruise ships, hospital administration and catering are a few of them, we can name where one can be sure of placement after their graduation.

Catering department of railways, banks, armed forces, catering institutions & self employment are the budding areas where we see young people being placed after graduation and they are doing really well. Even banks, FIIs, insurance & retail sector prefer hospitable, groomed, communicable & highly service oriented professionals for their industries which lead to multiple job opportunities for an individual looking forward to Hotel Management as a career option.

Various courses that can help an individual learn the most important things and pursue the best future option for them are :

1) Bachelor in Hotel Management : This helps one in learning communication skills, food production, housekeeping, front end operations, management skills, accounting, business law, nutrition & food science, business ethics, HRM, event management, public relations, travel management & entrepreneurial skills.

2) Diploma in Hotel Management : This course will enhance the skills in front office operations, management skills, Human Resource Management, food production & nutrition, principles of Hotel & tourism Management.

3) BSC in Hotel Management & catering : It includes the courses mentioned above in bachelor and diploma.

4) BBA in Hotel Management : This also includes the same covering advertising and promoting skills.

The purpose of giving a brief overview about the courses was to aware the aspiring students about the learning process and how the specialization helps in being a perfectionist and thus grabbing opportunities with both the hands in future. The Hotel Management Industry is not given that much importance but in the upcoming years this will provide a strong platform for the aspiring students. As this industry is understaffed, they are quickly absorbing young talents and thus placement becomes certain. If one is loyal and efficient in his/her hard work and perseverance, one can get placed even in 5-star hotels & in government sectors like railway, tourism etc.

This exam is conducted only for the undergraduate course (that is LLB) in institutes of Symbiosis International University. This exam is not held for the purpose of admission into LLM.

Pattern:

The paper consists of the same 5 sections as that of CLAT with each section accounting for 30 questions and 30 marks, so there would be a total of 150 questions. It is an offline exam that spans over a period of 2 and a half hours, which gives you an average of one minute per question. There is NO negative marking.

When to Apply? Anytime between January 9th– April 15th, 2018

Expected Date/month of examination: May 5th, 2018

Delhi University Law Entrance Exam:

This exam, conducted for the renowned Delhi University, is held only in the cities of Chennai, Delhi, Guwahati, Kolkata, Nagpur and Varanasi (the test centres declared for the exam in 2017; 2018 declarations haven’t yet been made).

Pattern:

A total of 100 questions are asked with each right answer awarding +4 marks and each wrong one awarding -1. The paper is divided in 4 sections: English (including RC), General Awareness, Logical reasoning and Legal Aptitude, with no certainty as to how many questions would be asked from each section. This makes this exam a tad unpredictable. This again is an offline exam spanning over a duration of 2 hours.

When to Apply ? The application process should start by 3rd week of April, 2018 ending sometime in May, 2018.

Expected Date/Month of Examination: June, 2018.

Other University Level Examinations:
  • AMU (Aligarh Muslim University) Law Entrance Exam
  • IPU CET for Guru Gobind Singh Indraprastha University
  • CUSAT (Cochin University of Science and Technology) Law Entrance exam
  • LPU NEST for Lovely Professional University
  • JMI (Jamia Milia Islamia) Law Entrance exam

Application process for most of the above universities starts in January. The way of asking questions in the exam may differ a little but the content would almost be similar to the exams listed in points 1-5. It is a good idea to go through previous year papers of these exams so as to equip yourself better with what to expect.

If you have made up your mind to pursue a career in law then you have many options. Choose well, apply in time, prepare smartly and you should sail smoothly through these turbulent times of college admissions.

May the force be with you.
