Impact of COVID-19 on Hospitality Higher Education so far
Covid-19 hit India in the last week of March when everything came to a standstill. There were ongoing semesters in hotel management colleges at that time. Some students had already opted for top hotel management internships and some were planning to appear in entrance examinations for the hotel management course after class 12. Even many hospitality students were on the verge of their placements. So, many educational institutions managed to cover the remaining syllabus post lockdown via online teaching. As regards upcoming academic year institutions will most likely have to follow the blended teaching system where the initial 20% will be done online, leaving the rest of the syllabus to be covered in physical classrooms.
Affect of COVID-19 on the job aspirants
While the hotel management industry has entry-level jobs and various job profiles a candidate can get into with just some diploma and certification course, there are also higher-level jobs that could be attained by those with a degree. But the current situation is not a happy situation for any industry and so for hospitality. It will take no less than one year for the hospitality, travel and tourism, and aviation sectors to bounce back. As soon as this industry gets back on its foot, there will be a flood of positions for those looking for jobs in the sector. So it is necessary to keep hopes high.
