Hotel and Motel Managers
It's a good idea to begin preparing for a career in hotel
management while in high school. Concentrate on a business-oriented
curriculum, with classes in finance, accounting, and mathematics.
Computer literacy is also important in the hotel industry, for
reservations, accounting, and management of supplies. Brush up on
your communication skills while in high school. You'll need them
when giving direction and supervision to a large and diverse staff.
Take English classes and other courses such as speech or drama,
which will give you the chance to polish your grammar and speaking
skills. A second language, especially Spanish, French, or Japanese,
will be very helpful to you in the future.
