Become a tour operator, parks and operations operator or a travel sales agent! You will become competent in providing services such as quotes, itineraries, developing tour packages and making reservations. You will also become knowledgeable on the tourism governance and policy of the countries that your clients are visiting. While you may not think a formal qualification is necessary to get into hospitality, it’s what will distinguish you from others in the market and will give you a competitive edge, both in Australia and overseas. A qualification could be what gets you the job at that tropical resort, hatted restaurant or the popular pub down the road.
