    i recommend you go for hotel management. it's just like i hoped. don't listen to others opinions.i first was doing engineering where every week 1 person from our college used to suicide.it was so usual it kinda became a habit for people.the pressure was too much,too much competition and people were underpaid.i left it and joined hotel management.i had a passion for it.if u concentrate from start,only then you'll be able to succeed.i work 12 hours a day for 80000 per month.yup it is hardwork ,but it is definitely worth it.

    i just joined the industry executive trainee in hilton world wide , within one month i took a 2bhk flat for rent … fully furnishd it… its just how u perform … life is a race go any where u l find winners nd loosers ,,,, u can get success if u r humble enough with your job rather than thinking about wife , life and girl at this very age …. this industry is for the guyz with balls not for some shit guyzzz who thinks themselves to be public servant , not a golden key for giving happiness to people GUYZ the youth should think like leaders not fuking loosers

    Those who are willing to do hm plzz think twice because its nt an easy task.
    u have to kill ur dreams and just think about the hotel and cheap way of earning money such as tips .lol . Those who already spoiled there future they have to immediatly apply to any travel and tourism chain same lyk me good lige as a travell manager or travel escort nice life no cheap work.

    Dear Friend,

    Now a days Hotel field is growing very fast, once you finish your study or now while you are in study try to get part time job as a work experience in a hotel or resort, not for money. once you finish your study you will have a job, we all know that pay in india is very low compare to abroad. once you have experience you can join chain of hotels and you are done..
