Tourism jobs are generally pretty fun. You can try something different each summer or continue developing your skills and experience year after year. And, bonus, that can lead to a career once you’re out of school.
Figuring out a career path can be intimidating. It’s always easier with a bit of experience to back you up. And with the tourism industry literally popping off in Northern Ontario, learning and doing at the same time is a great place to start.
You don’t have to start over when you make a mid-career pivot into the tourism industry. Instead, you can make the most of its flexible adventure lifestyle and numerous opportunities for growth by doing more of what you love!
