    Summary

    The goal of this chapter was to provide the reader with a wide variety of landing points - hoping to lead a prospective learner down the right journey. The world of hospitality marketing can seem overwhelming. If you are interested in starting your career within this field, I suggest choosing a few topics you may be interested in and learn skills/tools to lead you down the right path. Remember, everyone's marketing path may look different and unique to yours. Throughout this chapter, we have covered: 

    • Basics of marketing 
    • Marketing, Technology & Hospitality - how these three concepts work hand-in-hand
    • Key operational processes that all Marketing Professionals should have 
    • Basic management functions - breaking down different types of marketing 
    • Different examples of individuals who have successfully journeyed throughout hospitality marketing 

    Networking 

    Network, network & network! A great tip that I was given early in my career is to continue my networking journey - which is an evolutionary process throughout one's career. Using tools like LinkedIn and your college or university job board to connect with alumni or like-minded individuals, will guide you in the direction of your dream career. Take a look at my personal LinkedIn for examples on how to structure your own profile.
