Did you know that Travel and Tourism offers endless career opportunities?

Do you think working in travel and tourism means a job as a tour guide, hotel receptionist, restaurant worker or flight attendant? Think again.

Travel and tourism goes well beyond the traditional “hospitality” or transportation jobs into areas you may not realize – such as artificial intelligence, entertainment, sports, medicine, wellness, fashion, food, art, culture and the environment. Thinking of being an entrepreneur? This is the industry for you! And strange as it may seem, not all travel and tourism jobs deal with people and involve travel.

Did you know that Travel and Tourism supports one in 10 jobs globally and over the next 10 years it will grow at over 4%, with an average Travel Manager salary at over $50,000 annually? But this growth is creating a huge demand. The industry needs you -- bright, motivated, skilled professionals to fill management positions at all levels.
