I had to interrupt my hotel career to do compulsory military service in Greece. I now work at a ferry company with responsibility for hotel operations and am doing an MBA. Can I get back into hotels?
I think very much so. You have lots of experience to work with, and I'm sure a food service management company would be interested in talking with you. The skills you've learnt from the hotels will be valuable to any company, depending on the departments you worked in and at what level.
I would get more experience while doing your MBA, as this will give you a better chance of employment, even if it's job shadow on a voluntary basis
