can i still get anywhere with a tourism management degree? watch

    • Thread Starter

    I choose my university courses (tourism managaement) thinking it would leave a wide range of careers as an option for me considering i wasnt 100% sure what i wanted to do within the industry.

    Now, I recently came across careers as a hotel concierge. and i really want to do that, but it says a deree in hospiality management is desirable. Do you think tourism management with a placement year at a hotel would be any good and impress them.
    Also what things could i do to make me more employable for this job?


    Although they mentioned a "desirable" degree, your options are still pretty wide... there is more emphasis on your skills than the actual title of the degree (with non science / engineering related degrees)

    Try to think of the core skills required to do the job, and think of really good specific examples from both university and also the hotel work experience you have that demonstrates those skills
