HELPFUL TIP:

How your character makes a living is an important decision. After all, there’s probably a good reason why they chose this career. Think about how they pull on certain talents and skills, have positive or negative traits, and adhere to a specific work ethic to excel. Sometimes characters choose an occupation because of how they were raised, something they experienced, or even an emotional wound, so consider how all of these things will show readers who they are deep down, and why they do what they do.
OVERVIEW:
A concierge typically works at a hotel, assisting guests and making their stay as enjoyable as possible. Their tasks often include scheduling transportation, making reservations, answering questions, and offering advice on local events to attend. The best concierges will go above and beyond their expected duties to provide guests with extraordinary service.

NECESSARY TRAINING:
Both a high school diploma and previous hotel experience are preferred but aren't required. Knowing the immediate area well and being familiar with its current events and goings-on is a must for providing excellent service. A concierge should also be able to relay succinct and clear directions. In some locales, knowing multiple languages may be a requirement.
