Food and beverage jobs are exciting career options for professionals who excel at sales and management and want to work within the economically vibrant hospitality industry. From hotels and resorts to country clubs and restaurants, you will find many food and beverage jobs at Hcareers.

Hcareers is a prominent job board for food and beverage positions. Top employers from hotels and resorts, cruise lines and restaurants, country clubs and retirement communities regularly post available food and beverage jobs including food and beverage director, manager, supervisor and assistant manager positions. Professionals interested in this type of employment will also find opportunities in food and beverage sales.

Food and beverage jobs are increasing, and should continue to do so through the foreseeable future. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, food and beverage job opportunities will see a growth rate of eight percent through 2018. Many verticals within the hospitality industry are expected to increase the need for new staff at a more rapid rate. For example, the National Restaurant Association believes restaurant employment, including positions in food and beverage management, will increase to 14.3 million professionals by 2022.

Food and beverage jobs in large hotels and resorts, casinos and cruise ships may include food and beverage director positions. Typically, a food and beverage director manages the all food and beverage related operations of an establishment. Daily responsibilities often include overseeing employees, inventory management and managing budgets. Responsibilities may also include coordinating food and beverage and associated staff for banquets, weddings, conferences and other special events. Food and beverage director positions typically require a culinary degree or graduation from a hospitality management program along with several years of experience within the industry.

Restaurants, bars, nightclubs and retirement communities also hire directors, though smaller establishments may rely on food and beverage managers and supervisors to oversee this aspect of their business. Professionals in these food service jobs have similar responsibilities and educational requirements as those listed for the director, though they may also work their way up from other restaurant management positions. Assistant food and beverage managers do just that, they assist. They start with less experience, but may eventually work their way up into a higher-level management role. Food and beverage managers and assistant managers may receive salary or hourly wages.

Food and beverage sales positions are found within establishments such as hotels, casinos, country clubs and other businesses that host conferences, weddings, banquets and events. Professionals in these food service jobs sell the establishment's food and beverage services to clients. For example, if a bride-to-be is holding her wedding reception at the country club, someone in food and beverage sales will work with her in regards to the menu, drinks and refreshments and associated costs. Compensation for this type of food and beverage position may be based on salary plus commission.

If you're ready to begin your search for your first �or next� food and beverage career, opportunities should be plentiful. Check the Hcareers job board regularly for the most recently posted food and beverage jobs.
