Tourism and Hospitality
There are over 650,000 people employed by the tourism and hospitality industry just within Australia, so it is a huge and exciting business.

Tourism and Hospitality is a major boom industry and will continue to grow rapidly. It is an industry which creates economic and employment opportunities throughout Australia and the rest of the world, providing an exciting and diverse career – with the prospects of travelling.

Tourism is travel, both local and international and includes travel agencies, tourist information offices, tour wholesalers, attractions, events, meetings, festivals and conventions and tour guiding.

Hospitality is the food, beverage and accommodation to both visitors and local residents. It includes hotels, motels, resorts, restaurants, functions, conventions, cafes, clubs and casinos.

The tourism and hospitality industries are customer-service driven. People skills are an essential part of working in the industry. These skills include:
     good communication skills
     a strong customer focus
     smart presentation and grooming
     organisational skills
     ability to work in a team
     ability to work well under pressure
     good technical skills and knowledge.
