Appreciate the fact that you have taken the time to visit Hospitality 1ST.
Let's begin with our promise – we will not waste your valuable time. This
site minimizes any graphic intrusions – by specific design. You won't find
a bunch of `whirl and twirl´ gimmicks, rotating banner ads or the
burdensome `pop-ups´ that so many web sites (especially in the hospitality
industry) have resorted to. If you are not interested with a straight-forward
presentation, then we're just not for you.
& News Releases: We’ve fast become the most visited
industry dedicated – news resource. More than 2.1-million page views (not
hits - which is a misnomer) per month. Again, no intrusive advertising,
only direct archived information which remains in plain view (no logins,
ids or passwords required) for up to 60 days from the date of initial posting.
Easy to use, easy to view and best of all – quick to access! Also, dozens
of companies are taking advantage of our special emailed “Hospitality Industry
Newsmaker Alerts”™ with a circulation exceeding 500,000 direct e-mail impressions
Simply put – we’re often called upon to direct hospitality career-minded
students and those seeking the higher level of hospitality educational
programs – beyond the traditional high school years. The resource currently
lists one-hundred (130+) schools, from around the globe, each school listed
providing pertinent departmental offerings, degrees and contact information.
One of every seven site visitors is interested in career opportunities.
The industry is one of the most mobile there is – we invite you to see
what employers are offering. Hospitality 1ST does not maintain any resume
“bank” – we will however be happy to provide resume/career consultation,
when requested, on a per situation fee basis. You may inquire below through
our general contact information.
For those curious about who’s subscribing to our newsletter and a general
overview of our web site visitation statistics. Normally updated every
couple of weeks.
E–Newsletter: Since November 1998 we've authored an email publication
dedicated to Sales, Marketing, Public Relations and Web Site Development.
It is e-delivered once a month, more than 77,740+ are subscribed, there
is no cost and it is one of the most recognized information sources in
the hospitality industry. Along with the newsletter, our industry-wide
“Newsmaker Alert™” service is emailed every Tuesday. When subscribing to
the newsletter you will also receive these alerts – there’s no other subscription
option. Next newsletter issue: April 25. Please
subscribe here. We do not honor subscription requests from/to any "Outlook.com"
That stands for the Small Business Hospitality Association™, which is a
relatively new entry into the associations world. It’s different, its purpose
is marketing, exposure and networking. It is not about seminars, conferences,
merchandise or inflated membership dues which are needed to offset excessive
administrative salaries. Most search engines list `SBHA´ right near
the top of their results pages. The ROI (return on investment) is unequaled.
The current members invite your inspection.
A private hospitality industry e-mail messaging service – which does require
a subscription – available at no cost. The ListServ acts as a conduit for
discussion(s) among interested hospitality industry participants. It is

to Sales, Marketing, Public Relations and Networking to the positive benefit
of all concerned, some “outside” issues, like current events, are also
welcomed. Referral opportunities are encouraged, blatant advertising will
