The number one job of a Hotel Manager is to ensure a hospitality establishment runs so smoothly that guests feel so welcomed. First things first, though: get yourself welcomed at such a place by nabbing a spot with the right Hotel Manager resume.

What does that cover? Let’s get started.

Here’s what a recruiter is looking for in a Hotel Manager resume

  • Academic degree in Marketing, Hospital and Restaurant Management, or other related fields: Bachelor's degree or higher
  • Career milestones that translated to major achievements for your previous employers, such as maximised occupancy rates through the development of an efficient rebooking system, specific contributions to raising hotel ratings, etc
  • The scope of your experience in successfully handling various processes in hospitality management, including fiscal and financial management tasks (drafting budgets, cutting costs, etc), developing or improving child protection, health, and fire safety protocols, resolving different types of complaints, negotiating with upper management and clients, multitasking, and providing great leadership
  • Interpersonal skills, which cover training new hires, establishing a great company culture, communicating verbally and non-verbally, etc
  • Affiliation/membership with or certifications from according hospitality organizations

PRO TIPIf the scope of your experience is rather large, it may be tempting to list all of them - but you’ll run the risk of overcrowding your resume with too many details. Pick about three of your most shining work experience and highlight them.
