Long before I worked in the travel industry, I was a traveler. I've been lucky enough to explore 65 different countries on all six inhabited continents and have had the chance to both live and work around the world for most of my professional career. I've worked on major international projects in Australia, China, France and South Africa and I continue to circle the globe several times each year. I share many of my travel experiences on Style Hi Club.
"This is an incredibly detailed guide to get anyone started on a career path in the travel industry. What's especially fantastic about this book is that it covers both the jobs you might expect (working with airlines or hotels) and those you might not (working with tourism boards or PR agencies), even offering organizational charts with specific job titles. No matter what your skillset is, you're likely to find a way to fit into the enormous travel world."
