12 min lectura

Hotel F&B positions are a great work opportunity for those with a passion for food and beverage related areas, and have a good variety of roles for all tastes

Preparing for a job can be a hard task for anyone, especially when it comes to hotel training. Since the industry offers such a wide range of positions and departments, it can be tough to find a focus and know how to train. If you are looking for work in the hotel industry and have a passion or skills related to food then F&B positions could be the right path to take. 

What are hotel F&B positions?

These refer to a food and beverage position. Meaning anything that has to do with managing, preparing or serving food and drinks to guests. These jobs include:

  • Kitchen manager.
  • F&B manager.
  • Kitchen staff administrator. 
  • Executive chef, assistant chef. 
  • Cook.
  • Waiter.

Time management skills 

One of the biggest skills that are necessary for hotel work is knowing where to spend your time. This won’t be as confusing for the more physical positions like waiters  and chefs, since tasks will be determined mainly by demand and need. But for those in managerial positions, time management skills are a must have. Even if you don’t want to work in those roles, time management can help you in everyday tasks from your personal life as well. It is always a super useful skill to train. 

Why is it so important? 

You will be working in a service industry environment meaning new requests come up everyday. Because of this you will need to balance long term tasks and projects with daily tasks. Having the time management knowledge  will help the workload be more manageable and prevent things from slipping through the cracks. 

Learning another language 

Where should you start with languages? 

If you are not an English speaker then perfecting your English goes first, then move to other popular languages like Spanish, or French. If you want to keep adding languages, we suggest following language families like learning from the same Romance language family, Germanic, etc. So, it’s easier to learn.

Digital training can open the doors for young people looking for work in the hotel industry, including food and beverage roles
