Further your Hospitality Education in Singapore
Interested in diploma courses in Singapore? Or have you been wondering if a hospitality university is the right fit for you? Singapore, after all, is home to various reputable private diploma schools and the hospitality scene is only ever growing. Not only is it one of the world’s biggest industries – it is incredibly dynamic, constantly evolving and growing – fast. With new technological developments and increasing expectations with guest experiences, more diverse and specialized job opportunities have opened up in Singapore.
Here are 5 reasons why you should seek a hospitality education in Singapore!
- It’s an adaptable, global experience
Hospitality, contrary to popular belief, is not just food and beverage or late night shifts at hotels. It’s about providing fantastic customer experience – regardless of where you are in the world. From culinary arts to finance and project management to managing entertainment, hospitality is simply an umbrella term for so many of these various fields.
This also essentially means that hospitality jobs encourage and improve skills that are recognised throughout the world and experiences that can be applied to any business or field. Having a degree or diploma in hospitality makes it more likely for your future employers to take you, since they will be more confident in soft skills, such as communication, collaboration and empathy – skills that can’t be taught via textbooks. These skills matter, and having them makes you very marketable. Working and studying what goes on behind the scenes builds soft skills that are incredibly essential in so many jobs these days. This is why many are attracted to pursuing a degree or a diploma in hospitality globally – it’s a stepping stone onto greater things, and opens doors to various other careers that you should find interesting in the future.
- Hospitality is one of the most secure industries
According to The World Tourism Council, the travel and leisure industry will make up for USD $4,065 billion by 2029. It is also predicted that it will directly account for over 154 million jobs around the world. Other fields, with constantly evolving technology and complex Artificial Intelligence, have caused roles in various fields to become redundant in the workplace.
In our program, our students receive their diploma while working part time. Not only does this provide hands-on experience, it also allows our students to enhance the skills that they would need in the field. The hospitality field is founded on human interaction and, with how important these soft skills are, it is much less likely to be affected by automation.
- You’re not confined to a cubicle.
If you’re the type of person that can’t stand sitting around in a cubicle all day, then hospitality is perfect for you. The environment is incredibly dynamic and you may be tasked with different jobs each day. This keeps you moving and on your feet a lot more which not only keeps you healthy, but also allows you to learn more from various professionals in the industry. You also get to meet new people and learn more simply from traveling!
Perhaps you may be wondering what kind of roles are available in hospitality. Often than not, it is assumed that people are confined to waitressing or bartending. Our students had once had the assumption that, when they applied for their part-time diploma while working, that they would simply hold chef jobs in Singapore. In fact, the hospitality industry is one of the largest sectors in the modern world, with enough variety in job roles for any kind of person, from the creative to the corporate-minded.
- No experience? No worries.
Have you searched for a part time job during a school break only to find listings that say you need at least a year or so of experience – something you do not have as a fresh student? It may be daunting when applying for a diploma or a degree in hospitality since you’ve never worked in the industry – especially if you’re applying for Singapore, a place that is revered for its education. However, you could still apply to work in Singapore with little to no experience simply with a hospitality diploma!
In such an international and diverse industry, who knows where you’ll end up.
- It doesn’t always feel like work
A study showed that those that pursued a job in hospitality were also more likely to say that they were happy at work! Hard to believe, especially with today’s modern mindset that work is just a way to get money. However, the hospitality industry ranked #6 in the world’s top 10 ‘Happiest industries’!
That’s a relief to say, especially when you hear horror stories from friends or family with bad bosses or bad colleagues. Although it can’t be promised that you would not encounter such instances in the hospitality field, it is an essential point to provide satisfaction to guests. In turn, many hospitality companies in Singapore are doing everything they can to raise professional satisfaction, so that job turnover is significantly reduced. This not only means that an employee could get promoted and rise through the ranks quickly, but they would also obtain larger salaries over time – all while having fun!
