What is your understanding of career options in the tourism industry.


Task One:

Using the slideshare below choose two tourism career options you are interested in and answer the following questions:

  • What do you think your role would be?
  • What do you think the company you work for would expect from you?
  • Do these two roles differ from what your clients might think your role is, if so how?

Task Two:

Now you have choosen two different career options - think about where in the world you would like to work (destination) and where - as in business. See if you can find out anything about what skills you would be required to have and what tasks you would need to carry out.
