Tech Trends Up in Hospitality
In a recent New York Times report by Julie Weed, Michael Leidinger, chief technology officer with Hilton Hotels and Resorts, said his department added 140 technology-related positions in just the last two years. Leidinger said many college students are focused on pure technology companies, while hospitality offers unexpected careers. “If you’re really into technology, there’s a revolution happening in hospitality,” said Leidinger.
In just the past year, Hospitality and Casino-Gaming employers are aggressively searching for technology employers. In particular, managers and executives who can drive technology initiatives are prized—and rewarded.
