Hospitality: A world of possibilities

Jessie Pullins

Jessie Pullins is a lead steward at the Sheraton New Orleans who was once at a shelter. The hospitality industry was willing to give him, like many others, a second chance. Those coming from disadvantaged circumstances are becoming chefs, managers, executive stewards, etc. because the industry invests in them.

New Orleans’ hospitality industry is a major component of the regional economy. As tourism grows, so do employment opportunities.

The Greater New Orleans Hotel & Lodging Association and its affiliated Hospitality Education Foundation provide career pathways for individuals who are interested in working in local hotels. The foundation has a number of programs aimed at workforce development, including its latest initiative, Faces of Hospitality.

For many, a job in hospitality opens up a world of possibilities and provides enormous opportunity to individuals of all backgrounds and skill sets. The hospitality career path can be very rewarding, especially here in New Orleans.
