What's Wrong with a Career in Hospitality? An Examination of Student Choice. Occasional Paper
Hamm, Simon; Angliss, William
National Centre for Vocational Education Research (NCVER)
The preference of students to choose a career in events management over hospitality despite low demand for skills is the focus of this paper. The need for greater involvement of external stakeholders is identified as important in ensuring that students make an informed decision when choosing a career path. A model representing the ideal situation for student decision-making on career choice is proposed. The research was funded through the Building Researcher Capacity initiative of the National Centre for Vocational Education Research (NCVER) and was undertaken by a novice researcher in the Community of Practice scholarship program. A list of interview questions is appended. (Contains 4 figures.)
