Orlando Hotel Jobs

There are many options for those seeking Orlando hotel jobs.

There are many different types of hotels and other accommodations, but hotels and motels make up the majority of establishments in the industry. The different types of hotels include: full-service, limited-service, extended-stay, casino, conference, resort and all-suite.

Other entities, such as bed-and-breakfasts, RV parks, campgrounds, rooming and boarding houses, guest houses and youth hostels, are often included in the hotels and other accommodations industry.

Service occupations account for nearly two-thirds of the hotels and other accommodations industry, which also includes office and administrative support occupations; management, business and financial operations occupations; and other occupations.

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the industry provided 1.9 million jobs throughout America during 2008. Hotels usually employ many young workers and first-time job holders for part-time and seasonal jobs, with 19 percent of workers younger than 25-years old during 2008.

Nationwide, employment in the industry is expected to increase by 5 percent between 2008 and 2018, which is lower than the 11 percent growth rate projected for all industries. The majority of new job openings will be full-service hotels.
