Working in Tourism
The tourism industry is large and significant across a large number of countries.
In some less developed countries, hospitality and tourism accounts for more than half of the economy; and this industry can also be among the largest of all industry sectors in many developed countries.
Tourism employs people in a range of situations, including:
- Tour Company Managers
- Booking Agents
- Tour Guides
- Tour leaders
- Activities Officers
- Event Managers
- Drivers (bus, limo, etc), pilots (plane, helicopter), captains (cruise ship, sightseeing boat, dive boat, ferries, etc)
Many jobs in the tourism industry are casual and part time, with work opportunities becoming strong during the tourist season, and weak in low season.
Some people work full time in this industry, but many others do this work as a supplement to another regular job.
Remuneration for many of those who work in tourism may not be particularly high, but for owner operators of small businesses, or senior staff in larger tourism businesses, a lucrative professional salary may apply.
Risks and challenges
Tourism work can be competitive and poorly paid. This means that, whilst it may be fun and fulfilling for a period of time, to make a realistic career and living in it, you may need to be the owner of a tourism operation or move up to a more senior position.
Tourism work can be unstable, due to fluctuating demands. This can be stressful to not have a reliable income.
How to become a Tourism Professional
Because of the varied roles within tourism, your route to a job in tourism can be varied. Many people study tourism, often in combination with hospitality. Other people may study a more specialised area, such as environmental tourism, or adventure tourism. Or, people may come to tourism from a different discipline, such as management, or administration.
Like most jobs, having experience will help you to find work. You may like to try and get work experience for a company you are interested in, and this may develop into a paid position. For many seasonal tourism operations it is a matter of being in the right place at the right time. Many tourist operators will employ travelers who are in the area for the season who approach them looking for work. Other industries are more permanent and you may be able to find work year around.
Tourism and Hospitality employs people in a range of situations, including:
Accommodation eg. hotels, camping, home stays, guesthouses, resorts.
Transport: eg. vehicle hire, drivers, charter services, etc., – drivers (bus, limo, etc.), pilots (plane, helicopter), captains (cruise ship, sightseeing boat, dive boat, ferries, etc.)
Food Service (catering, cafes, restaurants, shops)
Events management -weddings, parties, concerts, exhibitions
This course is suitable for those wanting to start a career in hospitality or those looking to consolidate their position or even those looking to start their own hospitality business.
