Getting Educated

There are many different schools that offer courses in travel and tourism. But before you apply to any school, make sure you know exactly what kind of job you would like to get. Would you rather work in a hotel or on a cruise ship? Or, does your passion lie in helping people make travel arrangements? Do you want to work for a large, international company or would you rather be self-employed?

After answering these questions, begin to search for a post-secondary program that can help you work toward your goal. Look at the websites of the various schools, and request that they send you their brochures and program catalogs.

Many career colleges offer two- and four-year degrees in travel and tourism. The longer programs are intended to train students for top jobs in the industry, such as manager of a hotel.

Job Prospects

As disposable income continues to rise among the general population, more and more money is being spent on travel and other leisure activities. The travel and tourism industry is growing exponentially (in the past 25 years, it has grown by an astounding 500 percent), and there are thousands of jobs available for those with training from a reputable school.
