NMHA Career Board

It’s not just a job, it’s a career!

Hospitality has a long history…and a fast-growing future. The original hotel concept – the inn – has been around for thousands of years and not even today’s technology has replaced travelers’ needs for accommodations. Moreover, the global hospitality industry has consistently expanded over time to meet changing traveler needs and expectations. Like the industry itself, experience working in hospitality translates to a career that is unlimited.

Hospitality jobs are becoming ever more varied, with the traditional departments of Front Office, Housekeeping, Laundry, Concierge and Guest Relations seeing new additions. Fitness teams, nutritionists, financial experts, communication/marketing specialists, data analysts, and even in-house designers are positions available in the modern hotel industry. As new generations of travelers demand accommodations that match their lifestyle, the hospitality industry will continue to expand and adapt to keep pace.

If you’re looking for a career that opens a gateway to the world, allows you to meet new people and learn new skills every day, be part of a diverse team, and have global opportunities for advancement in an industry with proven staying power, then check out some of the great career opportunities available here in New Mexico.

Be Patient, Be Kind, Be Respectful

In advance of businesses fully reopening in New Mexico on July 1, the New Mexico Hospitality Association (NMHA) in collaboration with the New Mexico Restaurant Association (NMRA) and the Jennifer Riordan Foundation (Foundation), have joined together with a campaign to ask the public to be patient, kind and respectful when dealing with hospitality and restaurant staff.

Many hotels and restaurants across the country, including in New Mexico, are dealing with staff shortages or are training new employees which may result in longer wait times and, sometimes, frustrated customers. The “Be Kind” campaign encourages guests to exercise patience, kindness and respect when patronizing hotels or restaurants.
