How to train for a career in the hospitality industry in Nashville
Nashville, Tennessee, has long been a destination for those interested in everything from music to food. Every year, millions of tourists travel to see the sights in Music City. Places like the renowned Grand Ole Opry, the Parthenon and the Country Music Hall of Fame draw people in from all around the world. While exploring all the things the city has to offer, people also need places to stay and eat. Without the people who work at attractions, in restaurants and at hotels, the experiences of those traveling to Nashville wouldn’t be the same.
Over the past few years, tourism in the Volunteer State has grown quite a bit. In fact, in 2017, tourism brought in more than $20 billion in economic impact with a record 113.6 million person stays. The tourism industry also generated 184,300 jobs. Nashville itself has experienced some of this growth. The city has seen 133 new bars/restaurants and 15 hotels open in 2018, with 20 hotels scheduled to open in 2019.
This growth means there may be employment opportunities for those looking to get into the restaurant, hospitality and retail industries. Think it’s a fit for you? If you’re interested in a career where you can work with a team to provide top-notch customer service and where every day is different, this might be a right fit for you—and a job training program at a trade school may help you get where you’d like to go.
