Task 1: Career Goal

My first choice is to work in hospitality management in the well-renowned tourist industry. My second choice is to work as a marketing manager in a well-renowned company. My third choice is to work as a human resource manager in a well-renowned company. Among these three choices, I have liked hospitality management as my career because this sector has great potentiality. According to Fisher (2016), the number of Tourism companies is increasing day by day that increases the job sources around the world. In addition, the people are very much like to travel in several countries. In addition, the profitability and prospects of this industry are increasing day by day (Fisher, 2016).
For this reason, this sector has the lower challenge of decreasing the demand. This sector also creates a better opportunity for me to improve my future career.
