Language skills and personality are two of the most important areas tested in the effort to weed out unqualified candidates from entering India’s $55 billion tourism and hospitality industry.

Employability solutions provider and assessment company Aspiring Minds has launched an employability evaluation system for students of hotel management.
The AMCAT-Hospitality is a computer-based adaptive test that measures the prospective candidates’ aptitude for various jobs within the hospitality industry. The test will analyse the candidates’ language skills, domain knowledge, and personality, besides functional knowledge in the areas of front office administration, food and beverages and housekeeping.
The study added that the number of ‘employable’ hotel management graduates falls in the range of six to 18 per cent across different functions.
