A career in tourism management can lead you into a number of different job opportunities where you will be responsible for maintaining a positive image and development of local destinations. You could look into working in a travel consultancy and arranging packages and holidays for international and local guests. Or you could work for the tourism information offices and assist people on their travel itineraries. A career as a tour guide may be more your thing and you could align with car rental groups and bus groups to take guests to exciting new destinations. Even consider combining your knowledge of tourism management with other areas in hospitality such as guest house management, wildlife management or event coordination, hotel management or even food and beverage related industries to achieve a comprehensive and thorough skills base to work across these careers.Furthermore :-

  • You could manage a tourism information centre which would include areas like business management, staff supervision and office systems
  • You may be responsible for ensuring services are in place to respond to day-to-day tourism enquiries
  • You may be required to check and regularly report to management on the status of the tourism marketing budget
  • You may need to give presentations on tourism awareness or new initiatives on behalf of the employer to industry, community or interest groups
  • You may assist in planning, development and implementation of the tourism marketing budget
  • You may liaise and build close relationships with the media to promote issues, and encourage community involvement and awareness.
