Model Answer:

A good website can be a gateway to important data and information when you need them most. So, whenever I get an opportunity, as a student of hospitality management, I like to browse different websites, which provide hospitality related news and information, in order to help my studies. One such website, that I like to visit almost on a regular basis, is

I think that all hospitality management students like me should visit this particular site as it continuously publishes and analyzes news that is related to the hospitality industry. Containing top class strategies to help failing businesses, does a great job of helping serious students to evaluate and understand the overall demand for hospitality services in different parts of the world. The website even lists internship positions for students from time to time so that the students can get an idea about the values of their credentials.

Over the last couple of years, this website has helped me a great deal to academically perform better. In fact, if this website didn’t exist, I wouldn’t probably be able to complete many of the reports and project, making it easy for me to determine the expectations of prospective customers and thus earning good grades. Without, I wouldn’t probably either learn so extensively about many of the hospitality industry leaders such as Best Western hotels, Radisson hotel group, Hilton Worldwide, Marriott International Inc. and Hyatt Hotels Corporation. Besides, the website has allowed me to interact academically with some of the finest minds and brains (regular contributors on the website) who essentially have defined and shaped the modern day hospitality industry. Finally, I doubt that I would really be able to land myself on a very good internship position, offered by a very prestigious hotel chain in the world, without the help of this pioneer website.
