Adventure Travel Specialists
If you are considering the business end of travel—working in a brokerage, planning tours, or eventually owning your own tour-packaging business—you should start taking business courses while still in high school. Accounting, computer science, mathematics or any other business-related course will give you a good start. Classes in geography, geology, social studies, and history might also help you understand and discuss the locations you may be dealing with. It is important to take a foreign language, a study you will probably need to continue throughout your career. Photography classes will be useful—especially if you plan to operate a firm that specializes in nature photography expeditions. Finally, classes in English or speech are always good choices for helping you develop the ability and confidence to deal with people.
