Weekend special: Career research + expert perspectives
Featuring Chip Rogers (AHLA), Amanda Gray & Raul Moronta (Remington), Matt Gorman (Upshift) and Peter Ricci (FAU)
Welcome to a special weekend edition of Hospitality Daily. A few months ago, I attended a career fair here in San Francisco and asked people if they would consider working in hospitality and what they thought about a career in this industry.
