A host or hostess position is relatively accessible. Employers sometimes require a high school diploma or GED, but many host positions can be obtained without these credentials. Some high school students work as hosts and hostesses as they work toward earning their diplomas. Those hoping to work in a supervisory role as a lead host or hostess may want to pursue a bachelor’s degree. A four-year degree will help a host or hostess who is interested in being a front-of-house manager or a lead role in an upscale restaurant. If a host or hostess wants to become a restaurant general manager or owner one day, he or she might consider earning a bachelor’s degree in hospitality management.
