Hi, I work as a hotel concierge and would like advice on change of career using my same skill set. Thank you
I have been working for about 15 years as a 5 star Hotel concierge and really want to come out of hospitality industry and wondering where I could move to using my skill set. I have been pondering over few things but seem lost as to what I can do. Would really be grateful to receive advice, thank you #concierge #hospitality
I echo Karin, Alan, Simeon, and Mingyi's responses. If you're looking into making a career move, the next best thing you can do for yourself is to follow your passion and your heart. What's kept you working in Concierge for 15 years that you've enjoyed? Is it helping people? Is it interacting with different types of people? Is it being in an environment where people are traveling, whether that be for leisure or business? Is it being able to share your knowledge & resources with others? Also, what haven't you enjoyed during your 15 years experience that you really wouldn't want to repeat elsewhere? Is it a stressful job? The type of hours and days you work, etc.? Hopefully answering these questions will begin to narrow down your options as to where you may wish to work next!
I also agree with what Karin, Alan, Simeon, and Mingyi have already shared in that your Concierge experience is a blessing! Many of the skill sets required of a successful Concierge provide you a foundation that is transferable to several other industries. You work well with others, are likely a strong communicator, very resourceful, able to think outside of the box, perform well under pressure, act with professionalism. As you edit your resume and prepare to apply for your next job opportunity, think about all the experiences, knowledge, and skill sets you have and how those would apply to different jobs and industries.
Wishing you the best of luck in your future endeavors!
