Green Hotel/Resort Ecomanagers
Employment opportunities for hotel managers is expected to grow about as fast as the average for all occupations through 2020, according to the U.S. Department of Labor. Interest in sustainable travel and green destinations is continuing to grow. More eco-resorts are opening every year and will need managers to oversee operations. Competition is expected to be keen, however, as many of these jobs are in interesting locations, providing managers with opportunities to work in unique, natural settings. Typically, the number of applicants far outweighs the available positions. A college degree, previous eco-resort management experience, and special skills and knowledge can boost a candidate's chance for the job.
