A great way to get business and people skill experiene is in the hotel business. College students can work at the front desk and learn a variety of business skills. Most hotel front offices are always looking for good people that can work nights and weekends. The pay is decent at $8-$14 an hour depending on where you live.
Once you graduate, you can also transfer those front desk skills to the hotel sales and catering department and earn entry level salaries of 40-60K plus bonus per year. Try http://www.aprinda.com for information on hotel sales and catering. Hotel Sales Managers can advance to 60-120K or more.
From the front office or sales, you can look to the General Manager Position that can pay 50-200K or more plus bonus per year. Just about all General Managers in the entire country started from the lower ranks and worked their way up.
