Hotel Desk Clerks
High school classes can be a useful foundation for a career in
the hotel industry. Concentrate on classes such as human relations,
business, marketing, and even sociology to prepare for this
people-oriented job. Be sure to take English and speech courses to
hone your communications skills. Computer science classes will
be useful, since clerks use computers to manage customer
reservations, communicate with customers, and work on other tasks.
Mathematics classes will come in handy because you will be working
with percentages and discounts. Taking a foreign language, such as
Spanish, will come in handy when dealing with customers who are not
fluent in English.
