Careers in Hospitality

Employment opportunities in travel and tourism, which fall into the leisure and hospitality industry, are abundant, diverse and rewarding. In the United States alone, leisure and hospitality jobs are projected to total 15 million in 2016, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Globally, tourism has about 235 million jobs – about 1 in every 9 workers.

In Vermont, more than 30,000 people work in travel and tourism positions, which represents roughly 1 out of every 10 workers in the state.
