Sometimes, Touristologists improving their studies abroad ask me advice about what to do next.
My Advice? Look for a travel agency willing to send tourists to your native country OR for a chain of hotels willing to open/manage a hotel in your native country OR for an airline company willing to open a route to your native country OR a tourism consultancy company OR a rent a car OR a revenue management software company OR… I could go on for a month but I think I have made my point!
Don’t look for a big salary (nothing wrong if they offer it!), look for the opportunity to show your skills, your attitude, your contacts… gain their trust and become the obvious choice to be the manager of their branch in your native country!
We are Touristologists! The world is our office! And… YES! We are, definitely, the best minds working in the best sector ever!
Is it seems difficult? Do you have doubts? Do you think that you don’t have what it takes? Don’t listen to me… Listen to your guts! Listen to the old master!
Yes, there were times, I’m sure you knew
When I bit off more than I could chew.
But through it all, when there was doubt,
I ate it up and spit it out.
I faced it all and I stood tall;
And did it my way.
For what is a man, what has he got?
If not himself, then he has naught.
To say the things he truly feels;
And not the words of one who kneels.
The record shows I took the blows –
And did it my way!
