Starting as a Night Auditor is the best way to get into the hotel industry. Almost every hotel is always looking for a night person because they are always in need. I myself started as a Night Auditor and now am a Front Office Manager facing a promotion to General Manager all with only 3 years combined hotel experience and no schooling. If you have the drive and show your company that you are here and loyal then you will go very far. Don’t be afraid to put in good hours when you are salary, and learn as much about everything as you possibly can. Attention to detail is key, and so is being assertive. You can do it!
Experiences result in less comparison with others. According to research done by Ryan T. Howell and Graham Hill, another significant reason experiences result in more happiness than material possessions is because experiences result in less comparison with others. Or, as they put it, “ It’s easier to feature-compare material goods (how many carats is your ring? how fast is your laptop’s CPU?) than experiences. And since it’s easier to compare, people do so.” This doesn’t mean, of course, that comparisons don’t still occur at events (“I wish I had that guy’s seats!”). But overall, both during and after, we are less inclined to compare with others the experiences we enjoy than the material possessions we own.
