You will be choosing one segment of the Hospitality
Industry. Choose the one in which you are most interested in pursuing a career,
because you will be identifying a career goal.
The following is a list of topical slides that should be included in
your presentation. You will need to include a word document that is a “script”
or narration of your presentation (i.e. what you are saying in your
presentation, broken down by slide number). You should not simply read what is
on the slide – your slides should not be “wordy”, but should be visually
appealing and relevant to the topic you are addressing. You will be attaching your
powerpoint presentation as well as a word document of your script. (2
Slide 1 – Title slide – just introduce yourself and the topic
Slide 2 – Industry Segment – Provide a definition of the
industry segment that interests you most, presumably the one in which you will
pursue a career. This may be foodservice, lodging, travel & tourism, event
planning or a segment like recreation or casinos. The definition of the
industry segment should be in your own words, but you will be including a
reference that you used to help form that definition. This source should be
from the Trefry library and this slide should include an APA formatted
reference for that source on the bottom of the slide. This source needs to be
an academic source – a peer-reviewed journal or a textbook. This should not be
a wiki page or an internet source.
Slide 3 – Career Goal – Describe your dream position within that
industry segment and the steps you will have to take to achieve that position.
This goes back to your work on your Week 4 Assignment. Describe the steps you
will need to take to become qualified for that position – in terms of education
Slide 4 – Industry Issue – Using an industry association source
(such as the National Restaurant Association, the American Hotel & Lodging
Association, U.S. Travel Association, The Events Industry Council, etc.) and
their data, legislative issues page, or current issues page – identify one
major industry issue that is currently having an impact on the state of the
industry and beyond just the industry (economy, environment, security, etc.).
Include a link to the page you used as a reference – this does NOT have to be
APA formatted. In your narration (and script), summarize the issue, the stance
the organization is taking on the issue, and what it means for the future of
the industry. You may use an issue you identified in your Week 6 Assignment.
Slide 5 – Summary and the Future – Wrap up your presentation
with a summary of how you will utilize your particular skills and talents – and
your personality traits identified early in class – to help you advance in your
hospitality career and solve issues such as the one identified in this project.
Be sure you are submitting both your PowerPoint presentation AND your
written script as a word document. This means there will be two attachments.
