The hospitality industry has jobs. That's because it is a labor-intensive business with high turnover. After all, it takes a person to greet guests and manage the first desk.
The opportunities range from selling two weeks in mini apartments in extended-stay motels to arranging travel tours to China. Usually age matters less than the ability to demonstrate high emotional intelligence or a sincere interest in the customer.
How to demonstrate that in the resume and cover letter? Provide examples of how you went the distance to figure out what a customer needed or wanted and then provided that service or product. Emphasize good listening skills.
Language is everything in how you present yourself on paper, in email, over the phone, and in-person. You can pick up the language that dominates the hospitality industry by pouring over the help-wanted ads. Notice what language occurs repeatedly. Then make those terms part of your credentials.
