Look at possible professions

Employment opportunities

Revenue in the hotel and catering industry has been increasing for over six years. That means employment opportunities have also been growing (source: CBS). The hotel and catering sector has one of the happiest professional groups in the Netherlands, so this is definitely a great industry to work in (source: HotelloTOP). 

Successful in the hospitality industry

Leisure is big business: from a visit to a festival to spending a nice weekend at a luxury hotel. On top of that, the Netherlands is the European country where the most conventions are organised. Following the enormous impact of the coronavirus, it is up to creative managers to help the sector recover from the blows it has received. The rise of booking websites has created a strong need for hospitality professionals with e-commerce expertise. A sector with a future!
