“Typically, we see a real slowdown as we get into Fall in terms of the number of jobs available in the industry. This year, though, companies are continuing to hire and we don’t see it slowing down too much as we approach Winter, which is a little unusual,” states Andrew McAleenan of EightSix Network. “Employers large and small are competing for the top culinary, service, and management talent, making it an ideal time to enter the industry or look for a new opportunity,” continues EightSix co-founder Justin McAleenan. “This is definitely a job seeker’s market.”

Whether you are a student, have little or no work experience, or you’re simply looking for more money or a better work environment, the hospitality industry is a great option for people of all ages. Flexible hours that allow you to work around school or another job, increased pay from tips, and the opportunity to meet new people and work with your friends in a social atmosphere make “the industry” an obvious choice for students, part-timers, and people entering the job market for the first time. Plus, the customer service skills developed in hospitality are highly-regarded by employers in all industries, preparing candidates for their careers later on in life, hospitality or otherwise.
