NACTA – The National Association of Career Travel Agents #travel #greece

#independent travel agents
#

Many Professional Travel Agents find that working with a “host” agency is the most desirable way to operate their independent travel business. Host agencies specialize in offering independents sophisticated services, overrides, automation, quality control and support. By aligning yourself with a quality host agency you can catapult your business into existence or take it to another level with great confidence that your clients will benefit.

Finding a quality host agency is critical to your success as an independent travel agent. As you might expect, host agencies are all very different so spend some quality time researching which host makes sense for you. Here are a few things to look for in a host agency;

    They already work with successful independent agents

They do not have any unresolved complaints against their agency

They are committed to developing a professional independent agent network

They do not have a “travel agent recruiting other travel agents” program.

They do not tout “travel agent ID cards” to obtain travel discounts.

They offer meaningful commissions and overrides

They are active ASTA and NACTA members

You understand what you are getting for your investment (if any)

They offer ongoing support

It really doesn’t matter where the host agency is located so don’t get locked into the idea that they have to be down the street from your operation. There are several solutions to the issues of access, communication and delivery that resolve the question of location. Most of all you should feel comfortable with your new host agency and their ability to fulfill your needs as your business grows.

NACTA has a membership for host agencies and the minimum standards for a host agency to qualify for this program are as follows:

    Must have been in business as a host agency for at least one full year

Must carry at least one million dollars in Errors and Omissions Insurance or require all independents to maintain their own current policies.

Average sales volume per independent agent must exceed $10,000.00

There are no unresolved complaints against Host agency

Committed to the development of a professional independent travel agent network

Registered to operate as a host agency with all local, state and federal governments as required

Do not have a “recruitment program” whereby consumers recruit other consumers into the network as a higher priority than individual travel sales.

Do not offer a “Travel Agent Photo ID Card” for the purpose of consumers to obtain travel professional benefits.

Frequently Asked Questions about Host Agencies

Why do I need a host agency?

Most Independent Travel Agents find it necessary (and desirable) to associate with a host agency for the purpose of obtaining domestic airline tickets, override commissions, marketing support, expertise, automation, quality control, clout, operational support and many other reasons that may be a combination of the above.

How do I know which host agency to choose?

Long before you choose your host agency you should develop a business (and marketing) plan so that you understand the nature of the business you intend to develop. If you plan to specialize in selling cruises you will probably want to find a host agency that specializes in working with a cruise specialist. Conversely, if you plan to specialize in handling corporate accounts, you will want find a host agency with the expertise and support mechanism, to make you successful. It is highly unlikely that a cruise specialist can help you if you want to sell corporate accounts and vice versa.

Why does one host agency charge $7,500.00 and the next charge $300.00?

Host agencies are just like other businesses. One may specialize in recruiting brand new agents and have a heavy concentration on training and start up integration into their network. The very next may simply recruit experienced agents and offer no training or integration support whatsoever. Common sense should lead your way through this maze. If the host agency you are looking at is charging $7,500.00 and giving you nothing but simply paying for their marketing cost of finding new agents, then look somewhere else. But, If you can easily see the value in a host agency charging even say, $10,000.00, then that may be a wise decision to make concerning your future.

What is the best computerized reservation system (CRS) or GDS to use?

Many new agents think the sun rises and sets on access to the CRS in the travel industry. Their first concern is “what computer software do I need to book travel”. For the most part, CRS (Computerized Reservations System) or GDS access is not really necessary unless you are going to be booking a lot of domestic airline tickets. Many host agencies offer Internet access to their CRS or GDS and others may offer dial up access via modem. The decision on which host to pick should not be based on the type of CRS access they offer, but on the level of support and overrides they offer as it pertains to your business plan.

What should I look for in a host agency?

There are quite a few things to look for in terms of how a host agency pertains to your business plan. Generally, however, these are the things that NACTA looks at. How long have they been in business? Does the host agency carry Errors and Omissions Insurance? What is the average sales volume per independent agent? How many independent agents belong to the network? Are there any unresolved complaints against the agency with the Better Business Bureau, the State Attorney General’s Office, or the FTC? Agencies appearing on these links have all passed these standards.

What about the $495 instant travel agency deals or Card Mill organizations?

Think about it. If all anyone had to do was pay $495 and then fly first class, stay in suites for free, and take cruises for $10 per day, who would pay full fare? If you really believe you can do all of this for $495, then you probably deserve to lose the money anyway. The truth is that when these operations first started they were able to fool some of the suppliers with phony ID cards and receive travel discounts, but the industry is wise to them now and it is going to be difficult (if not impossible) to fool anyone into accepting phony ID cards. There are some host programs that do charge a start up fee of around the $495 amount but what they include or offer can be on the up and up. Check carefully. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is!

Examples of Resume Objectives #resume,employment,objective,goal,advancement,example #of #resume #objective, #resume #objective #example,


#


View & Download PDF

The first step in any successful job hunt is creating a resume that accurately describes your skills, education, and experience for potential employers. Essentially, your resume serves as a marketing tool that “sells” your value to the reader and helps you land an interview.

Understanding the Objective Statement

An objective is a short statement that clarifies your goals regarding the type of employment desired and how your skills make you a good fit. In most cases, a resume objective is just one or two sentences long. Some professional resume writers refer to an objective statement as a focus statement.

Your resume objective should be included below your name and contact information. It is not necessary to highlight the section with a heading that says “Objective” or “Focus Statement.”

Objective statements are not required to be included on your resume, but can be particularly helpful if you’re a new college graduate seeking your first professional position or you’re changing careers. You should consider using an objective when a summary of your work experience and a skills list doesn t adequately reflect the type of position you re seeking.

If you do not wish to use a resume objective, you can simply use a heading below your name that indicates the type of job you want to apply for. This approach works best when you’re seeking an entry-level position with no experience required or if all of your work experience clearly aligns with a specific career field.

3 Tips for Writing a Winning Objective

When writing your resume objective, keep in mind the following tips:

  1. Be clear about your goals. A resume objective that could apply to anyone or any type of job isn’t helpful. The objective “Hardworking recent graduate seeks opportunity to use education to excel in building the success of the company” is ineffective because it offers no details about why you’re interested in a particular position or what makes you suited to the job
  2. Put the employer’s needs first. It may sound harsh, but a prospective employer doesn’t care how getting the job will help you advance your career. A statement like “I want to be part of the success in an environment of growth and excellence” is a poor choice for your objective because it only tells what you want and doesn’t show what you have to offer an employer.
  3. Highlight your strengths. Since the objective is at the top of your resume, it’s essentially the first thing the reader sees. Use this space to highlight why you are a qualified candidate. Try to incorporate keywords from the position description into your objective.

Examples of Effective Resume Objectives

Although objective statements should always be customized to reflect your own unique skills and career goals, the following examples can be used as a starting point in preparing your resume.

  • Administrative Assistant. Dedicated administrative professional with excellent customer service skills and extensive knowledge of bookkeeping procedures. Interested in opportunities in the travel industry focusing on sales, customer care, and office management.
  • Application Developer. Results-driven application developer seeks opportunity to create innovative application development strategies that increase brand awareness, drive traffic, and monetize digital real estate.
  • Caterer. Professional dietician and caterer with four years in the foodservice industry. Seeking to utilize strong interpersonal skills and culinary knowledge to create a memorable dining experience for clients.
  • Content Coordinator. Strong communicator with two years of experience writing and editing copy for diverse audiences will utilize knowledge to drive audience engagement in the nonprofit space.
  • Customer Service Representative. Bilingual English/Spanish customer service representative seeking position utilizing conflict resolution skills via phone, email, mail, or social media contact.
  • Digital Strategist. SEO and social media expert interested in position as digital strategist with a growing company looking to increase site traffic and overall brand awareness.
  • Driver. Dependable driver with clean DMV record and a commercial driver’s license seeks a position with a leading courier company that will lead to a long-term career relationship.
  • Engineering Technician. Deadline-focused engineering technician with two years of experience in assessing risks and identifying performance issues in the development of new products interested in opportunities focused on electronics research and development.
  • Financial Administrator. Recent graduate with coursework and internship experience in investment banking seeks position as a financial administrator with a focus on financial modeling and valuation
  • Foreman. Dynamic team leader adept at using energy, enthusiasm, and humor as motivational tools interested in opportunity as foreman and construction site manager.
  • HR Manager (career change): Dynamic, take-charge retail store manager with seven years of experience managing 100+ employees seeks opportunity to apply skills in human resources and payroll management.
  • Intern. Graduate student seeking internship as a research assistant specializing in foreign policy. Coursework has included extensive exploration of free markets and limited government.
  • Medical Assistant: Medical assistant with four years of experience supporting physicians and registered nurses seeks challenging position in a long-term care facility.
  • Sales Representative. Action-oriented sales representative seeking an opportunity to utilize skills in initiating and developing strategic relationships with government agencies, nonprofit organizations, and industry.
  • School Bus Driver. Experienced school bus driver committed to ensuring passenger safety and following precise transportation schedules interested in opportunity to work with a diverse student population.

When the Travel Nurse Division first moved from Colorado to Massachusetts, I was a brand new traveler, but the staff in the travel division made the transition seem easy.

Chris Wilson, Area Manager

“From November 2011 through May 2012, the Western North Carolina Region started four contracts for acute services in the greater Charlotte, NC area. To write the task was challenging would be putting it mildly. The support of the BioMedical Dept. Education Dept. and Inventory Dept. were priceless. The one crucial area of support we needed was nurses; we simply did not have enough to support the explosion of growth. That’s when I turned to our Fresenius Healthcare Recruiter, Janeen Neale.

Janeen completely understood our situation and was prompt to send the RN “cavalry” we needed! As the treatments grew each month (exponentially in one acute unit), I called on Janeen again for support. And again she delivered.

I realize the expense that our region incurred because we utilized this terrific resource, but when you are demonstrating to your customers (i.e. hospitals) that we are the experts they believe us to be and that we know all about hemodialysis, the investment in a Fresenius Travel Nurse is worth it! Each nurse brought their UltraCare Customer Service skills to the front lines and delivered exceptional care to our patients. What more could you ask for?

To the Travel Nurses who have served with us and still are, you have been nothing but a Blessing to our patients, our customers and to the rest of the Fresenius gang! With that said (written), I wish to give a heartfelt Thanks to the following Travel Nurses: Genene Mooney, Michelle Deadwlyer, Ericka Walker, Mark and Holly Hamilton and Corey Gatling. All of you are a welcome part of the Team!”

Donna Bates, RN

“In one year my confidence in my abilities of being a dialysis nurse has drastically risen. Our company has the best recruiters! Our company benefits outweigh the competitors. As far as traveling: I have hiked mountain paths as the fog rolled away to meet the morning sun; I have stood at the mist of Niagara Falls; felt the crisp of fall breaking while I was nestled up on a deck, which rested on the edge of a calm crystal-clear lake surrounded by mountains in Maine; I watched the sun rise over the ocean while waiting for my whale-watching tour to begin. My life is a new beginning.”

Lisa Almand, RN

“My name is Lisa and I have been a registered nurse for 32 years. I began employment with FMC in 2004, and transferred to the travel division one year ago. I have never regretted the decision to travel, and highly recommend it to anyone considering it for themselves. My recruiter is amazing, and always searches for areas in the states that I want to visit. She always sends me holiday wishes, and contacts me on a regular basis to ensure things are going well. I was in Colorado during the wild fires and she called to make sure I was alright. Even though she is miles away, I always feel like she is right there every step of the way. Ani in payroll will always make sure your reimbursement is accurate and timely. I have worked with staff from other companies, and I can assure you that FMC screens their employees and seek only the best of the best. There is a very high expectation of travelers, and the need is great.”

So if you want a new adventure, and love dialysis as I do. come join the FMC team. It is a decision you will not regret making!

Online Computer Networking Degree Programs

In our high-tech world, technology is constantly changing — a factor that fosters growth in job opportunities for qualified computer professionals. Many types of businesses and organizations need support from those with specialized training as computer networking experts. Professionals with this skill set:

  • Design and implement an organization’s computer networks
  • Protect computer systems from security breaches
  • Troubleshoot and fix problems that arise in a computer network

In order to prepare for these positions, online degree programs in network administration in computer networking combine the theoretical foundations of the field with real-world applications for these concepts.

Overview of Computer Networking Degrees

Students enrolled in online computer networking degree programs learn the fundamentals of the field and the everyday challenges that computer professionals face. Program curriculum includes:

  • Networking Fundamentals: Students can learn about technologies used in different kinds of networks — wireless, local area, and wide area — and explore both how these technologies work and their similarities and differences. Classes focused on fundamentals typically address the essential vocabulary of networking; network design, protocols, management, and security; the history of the computer networking field; and network troubleshooting and documentation.
  • Concepts of Network Security: Courses on this topic look at assessing networks to determine how safe they are, steps that should be taken to mitigate security threats, and how to evaluate and choose technologies designed to keep network securities safe. Other subjects covered include infrastructure security, types of internal and external security threats, and regulations and laws that impact network security.
  • Network Communication: This aspect of the curriculum helps students learn about IP traffic management and IP routes, how to create point-to-point network connections, VPNs, VOIP, CATV, and relay frame connections. Students may work on projects that give them hands-on experience with the network communication concepts they learn in the classroom.

In addition, depending on the school they attend, undergraduate students may have the opportunity to get real-world experience in computer networking through internships. Students who pursue graduate degrees may be required to complete a thesis, dissertation, or comprehensive examination.

Computer Networking Career Outlook

Thanks to the growing need for qualified professionals, graduates with computer networking degrees can pursue a number of different career options, such as:

  • Computer Support Specialists: Also known as network support specialists, these professionals advise workers in an organization on how to use their computer equipment. Job duties typically include evaluating, testing, and maintaining network systems; troubleshooting network systems and finding solutions for problems in a timely manner; and ensuring that users know how the company’s systems work. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), this career is on the rise — a 17 percent increase in jobs nationwide is projected between 2012 and 2022. The salary range for computer support specialists is between $59,090 and $96,850.
  • Network and Computer Systems Administrators: Those who chose this career option are responsible for maintaining a company’s computers systems, including duties such as analyzing the computer and network needs of a company; installing software for employees to use; troubleshooting and repairing systems when something goes wrong; and training employees how to use the systems. The BLS reports that these professionals make a national average salary of $72,560. This profession is expected to grow approximately 12 percent between 2012 and 2022.

Those with computer networking degrees have additional options, and may find jobs as information security analysts, network architects, computer programmers and software developers.

School Counselor Careers

What Is School Counseling?

A person’s school years are often very influential on the rest of his life. It is during these years that a child will grow into adolescence, then into his teenage years. During this time, a person will often further develop his personality, make and break friendships, and decide what he wants to do for the rest of his life.

School, however, can also be a very stressful time in a person’s life. Students today have to worry about getting good test scores, completing copious amounts of homework on time, excelling in extracurricular activities, and getting along with their peers. Being pulled in so many directions and having this much on their plates can be very overwhelming for just about anyone, regardless of their age.

Depending on his experiences, a person’s school years might be either the best years of his life, or the worst.

School counseling, however, is a type of counseling that focuses on helping students make the best of their education. Professionals in this field are typically referred to as either school counselors or guidance counselors. They typically work with several different students over the course of a school year, and help them with a variety of different problems, from class scheduling to substance abuse.

Today, school counselors are some of the most important and prominent members of a school’s faculty. They’re caring, compassionate, and genuinely concerned with the well being of the children they deal with. if you’re looking to make a difference in a child’s life and want to help him form his future, a school counseling career might be exactly what you’re looking for.

Why Do We Need School Counselors?

While in school, it can be very easy to feel lost, confused, alone, and overwhelmed. School counselors, though, exist to help students through the maze of academia.

The main goal of a school counselor is to help mold today’s young minds into tomorrow’s productive members of society. These professionals work with students on a daily basis in order to help them make the right decisions, meet challenges, and move in the right direction. Without school counselors, a large number of students might slip through the cracks as they struggle with academics or make less than wise decisions.

What Does a School Counselor Do?

A school counselor has a number of different job duties and responsibilities; perhaps more responsibilities than any other member of a school faculty. On any given day, these professionals will usually work closely with students, teachers, parents, and school administrators.

Students are typically a school counselor’s first priority. In general, these professionals are trained to keep the best interests of each and every student in mind.

A school counselor will often start by evaluating a student’s skills, strengths, weaknesses,career goals, and interests. From there, the counselor can then help the student choose which classes to take. The counselor is also usually responsible for creating each student’s class schedule, which needs to include all of the necessary classes that are required for graduation.

Career counseling is also another important responsibility of a school counselor. These professionals can help students who are unsure of their career goals choose some possible careers that are right for them. They can also help students take courses and participate in activities that will help them get into good colleges or career programs after graduation.

Social, behavioral, mental, and emotional problems are also often addressed by school counselors as well. For instance, school counselors will often help students who are struggling academically; being bullied by peers; abuse drugs or alcohol; or experiencing abuse or other problems at home. School counselors might also help students who are dealing with issues such as low self-esteem and time management.

School counselors will also usually stay in close contact with the parents of each student. Parents are usually informed of any problems that students may be having in school, for example. School counselors may also send parents periodic progress reports and give them advice on how to help their children succeed in school and in life.

Teachers may enlist the help of school counselors at times as well. They may ask for help with a problem student, for instance, or work with a school counselor to help a student with a particular problem. School counselors may also be asked to help with ho to discipline students as well.

The advice and concerns of a school counselors are also usually taken into consideration when school administrators are creating or reorganizing school policies.

In general, most school counselors begin their careers with a bachelor’s degree in areas such as counseling, education, or psychology. When pursuing a school counseling career, you’ll most likely also be required to earn at least a master’s degree in school counseling or education psychology.

Before becoming licensed, an aspiring school counselor will also usually need to complete a certain number of hours of supervised on the job training.

Forensic Psychologist: Education Requirements and Career Information

Education Requirements for Forensic Psychologists

While a forensic psychologist may find work with only a Master’s degree, a Ph.D. in psychology or a Doctor of Psychology (Psy.D.) degree is recommended. Licensing is essential for all practicing psychologists and can be obtained by taking examinations through the state psychologist licensing board. The American Board of Professional Psychology (ABPP) classifies forensic psychology as a recognized specialty and offers certification examinations.

To become a forensic psychologist, it is beneficial to have a minor in law. Some forensic psychologists have doctorates in both psychology and law. Because the application of forensic psychology deals specifically with how psychology works with the law, most jobs require varying levels of legal studies. This is a relatively new facet of psychology and forensic psychologists are encouraged to participate in continuing education programs throughout their careers.

Career Information for Forensic Psychologists

There are a variety of paths a forensic psychologist may take. Some work specifically with crime victims. A forensic psychologist counsels rape and abuse victims of all ages before, during and after court trials. They also assist victims in dealing with the stress of reliving the crime when the victims appear on the witness stand. On occasion, the forensic psychologist will testify as an expert witness to explain to a judge and jury the effects of the crime on the victim.

Other forensic psychologists work with the accused. These psychologists consult with persons being charged with crimes and assess the competency levels of the accused. The forensic psychologist often determines whether or not the accused has a clear enough understanding of right and wrong to stand trial. They may make a recommendation to a judge that the accused be sent to an institution for therapy prior to or in lieu of a court trial. These psychologists also work with those who have been convicted of crimes if part of the sentence includes rehabilitative therapy.

Some forensic psychologists go into private practice and work as consultants, but this is rare. Others have opportunities in research facilities. Primarily, forensic psychologists work in correctional facilities, law enforcement agencies and mental health institutions. They may also be members of law and psychology departments in an academic setting. Or, community health organizations and probation departments may employ forensic psychologists.

According to PayScale.com. as of January 2016, the median annual salary for forensic psychologists was $61,489. This is significantly lower than the median reported in May 2015 by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (the BLS) for all types of psychologists at $94,590. According to the BLS, job growth for all types of psychologists, a group which includes forensic psychologists, was expected to increase by 19% between 2014 and 2024. Since most jobs available to forensic scientists are government and law enforcement related, salaries are often determined by federal, state and local budgetary concerns. Florida and California are the favored employers geographically.

A forensic psychologist can work within a few industries, such as law or healthcare, where they are commonly responsible for assessing an accused criminal’s psychological state and determining whether the accused is fit to stand trial. Alternatively, many forensic psychologists work with victims of a crime such as rape or abuse. A forensic psychologist often provides counseling services for victims and accused criminals, depending on their specialty.

    Mental Health Counselor Careers

    What Is Mental Health Counseling?

    Life is full of frustration and difficult times. Most adults will usually have to deal with such things as balancing family and career life, and paying bills that they can’t afford. These stressful times can be very hard to get through and extremely overwhelming for some. Not coping with this type of stress in a healthy manner, however, can lead to mental and emotional strain.

    Mental health counseling can be used to pull some people out of their mental din. Professionals in this field offer counseling, support, and guidance to individuals that are having trouble coping mentally or emotionally.

    There are a number of mental problems that mental health counselors might encounter during their careers, from people dealing with everyday stress to those with diagnosable mental illnesses and disorders. For instance, they might counsel people that are having had times due to family, job, or social issues. They might also offer counseling to individuals experiencing:

    • Depression
    • Bipolar Disorder
    • Generalized Anxiety Disorder
    • Panic Disorder
    • Grief
    • Phobias
    • Eating Disorders
    • Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
    • Addiction
    • Grief
    • Chronic Pain
    • Substance Abuse
    • Suicidal Impulses
    • Self-Esteem
    • Marital Distress

    Mental disorders are sometimes considered to be the most common disability in the United States. In fact, research conducted by the National Institute of Mental Health has shown that over a quarter of all adults suffers from a mental illness each year. More and more people are finally realizing the importance of not only their physical well being, but also their mental well being. Health insurance companies are even more apt to offer coverage for mental illness services as well. Because of this, there will not be a shortage of mental counseling jobs in the coming years, and mental health counseling is a rapidly growing field.

This includes obtaining a Bachelor’s Degree. then a Master’s Degree. and finally entering into a Doctorate or PhD program. If you are serious about entering into this field of study, request information from programs available for you here .

    Why Do We Need Mental Health Counseling?

    Trying to cope with a mental disorder – or even extreme everyday stress – can be very difficult and overwhelming for most. These disorders are often very scary, confusing, and frustrating. Some people suffering from mental illnesses and disorders may even feel ashamed of their conditions.

    Mental health counselors, however, can help people learn to cope with their disorders and anything else life throws their way in a healthy manner. The guidance and skills that these professionals provide can often help people lead normal, happy lives.

    What Does a Mental Health Counselor Do?

    Mental health counselors typically work directly with clients, and sometimes their families as well. As mentioned above, professionals in this field might help with a variety of mental and emotional issues.

    Before counseling or treating their clients, mental health professionals will usually assess them first. This usually involves interviewing the clients and possibly having them fill out questionnaires. Depending on the severity of their conditions, mental health counselors may diagnose them with any number of mental illnesses.

    Traditional psychotherapy is often the preferred method of treatment for mental health counselors. This type of therapy usually consists of allowing the client to talk freely to the counselor with little interjections from him. Clients can talk about anything that concerns them, which allows them to explore their emotions and feelings. At times, the counselor may ask questions or offer comments.

    A mental health counselor might also help his clients with setting and achieving goals. They may offer encouragement and advice on how to reach certain goals. To keep clients from getting overwhelmed or frustrated, a counselor might also teach them stress reduction and relaxation techniques.

    Overall, mental health counseling is meant to be a short-term solution to help people get through rough patches in their life. Clients suffering from more severe and long-term mental illnesses will usually be referred to another mental health professional, such as a psychologist or psychiatrist.

    Where Do Mental Health Counselors Work?

    Mental health counselors often work in all different types of health facilities, where individuals that need them will have easy access to their services. For instance, they might work in regular hospitals and psychiatric hospitals, along with mental health clinics, hospice care centers, and home health care centers. Mental health counselors might also work for schools, detention centers, adoption agencies, law enforcement agencies, and even branches of the military.

    Many mental health counselors, however, typically choose to open their own private practices.

    What Are the Education Requirements to Become a Mental Health Counselor?

    Counseling Educational Track

    A good education is imperative when starting a mental health counseling career. Future mental health counselors should have a deep knowledge of the mind, how it works, and the issues that can affect it. A knowledge of human development is also important.

    The majority of individuals looking to pursue a mental health counseling career will usually start with a bachelor’s degree in psychology or counseling. Taking courses in your preferred area of mental health counseling is particularly important during this time. For instance, if you want to pursue a mental health counseling career that focuses on treating substance abuse, you should take several courses in this area.

    Most states also require mental health counselors to have advanced degrees as well, such as master’s degrees in counseling. Experience in a clinical setting is also usually required before becoming a licensed mental health counselor.

    Your education usually won’t stop even after you’ve become a licensed mental health counselor, however. If you choose to pursue a mental health counseling career, it is important to participate in continuing education programs or workshops in order to keep abreast of any important developments in this field.

    What Is the Median Salary of Mental Health Counselors?

    The salaries of mental health counselors varies, depending on the are of specialization experience. Mental health counselors that have worked for the military for several years, for instance, will often earn much more than those starting out in entry level positions with non-profit groups.

    According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the median salary for mental health counselors was $42,590 in 2011.

    Top 3 travel agent Jobs

    In addition, Fareportal provides an attractive compensation package

    What They Do [About this section ] [To Top ]

    Travel agents sell transportation, lodging, and admission to entertainment activities to individuals and groups planning trips. They offer advice on destinations, plan trip itineraries, and make travel arrangements for clients.

    Duties

    Travel agents typically do the following:

    • Arrange travel for business and vacation customers
    • Determine customers’ needs and preferences, such as schedules and costs
    • Plan and arrange tour packages, excursions, and day trips
    • Find fare and schedule information
    • Calculate total travel costs
    • Book reservations for travel, hotels, rental cars, and special events, such as tours and excursions
    • Tell clients about what their trip will be like, including giving details on required documents, such as passports or visas
    • Give advice about local weather conditions, customs, and attractions
    • Make alternative booking arrangements if changes arise before or during the trip

    Travel agents help travelers by sorting through vast amounts of information to find the best possible travel arrangements. In addition, resorts and specialty travel groups use travel agents to promote travel packages to their clients.

    Travel agents also may visit destinations to get firsthand experience so that they can make recommendations to clients or colleagues. They may visit hotels, resorts, and restaurants to evaluate the comfort, cleanliness, and quality of the establishment. However, most of their time is spent talking with clients, promoting tours, and contacting airlines and hotels to make travel arrangements. Travel agents use a reservation system called a Global Distribution System (GDS) to access travel information and make reservations with travel suppliers such as airlines or hotels.

    Travel agents increasingly are focusing on a specific type of travel, such as adventure tours. Some may cater to a specific group of people, such as senior citizens or single people. Other travel agents primarily make corporate travel arrangements for employee business travel. Some work for tour operators and are responsible for selling the company’s tours and services.

    Work Environment [About this section ] [To Top ]

    Travel agents held about 73,300 jobs in 2012. Travel agents work in offices, where they spend much of their time on the phone and on the computer. In some cases, busy offices or call centers may be noisy and crowded. Agents may face stress during travel emergencies or unanticipated schedule changes.

    In 2012, 83 percent of all travel agents worked for the travel arrangement and reservation services industry, which includes those who work for travel agencies. In addition, 12 percent of travel agents were self-employed.

    Work Schedules

    Most travel agents work full time. Some work longer hours during peak travel times or when they must accommodate customers’ schedule changes and last-minute needs.

    How to Become One [About this section ] [To Top ]

    A high school diploma typically is required for someone to become a travel agent. However, many employers prefer additional formal training as well. Good communication and computer skills are essential.

    Education

    Employers may prefer candidates who have taken classes related to the travel industry. Many community colleges, vocational schools, and industry associations offer technical training or continuing education classes in professional travel planning. Classes usually focus on reservations systems, regulations regarding international travel, and marketing. In addition, a few colleges offer degrees in travel and tourism.

    Training

    Employers in the travel industry always provide some on-the-job training on the computer systems used in the industry. For example, a travel agent could be trained to work with a reservation system used by several airlines.

    Licenses, Certifications, and Registrations

    Some associations offer certifications that may help travel agents once they are on the job. The Travel Institute, for example, provides training and professional development opportunities for experienced travel agents. Examinations for different levels of certification are offered, depending on a travel agent’s experience. Certification for airlines or cruise lines is available from associations such as the International Airline Transport Association’s Training and Development Institute and the Cruise Lines International Association.

    Some states require agents to have a business license to sell travel services. Requirements among states vary greatly. Contact individual state licensing agencies for more information.

    Other Experience

    Some agencies prefer travel agents with firsthand experience visiting a country. These agencies especially prefer travel agents who specialize in specific destinations or particular types of travelers, such as groups with a special interest or corporate travelers.

    Important Qualities

    Adventurousness. Travel agencies that specialize in exotic destinations or particular types of travel, such as adventure travel or ecotourism, may prefer to hire travel agents who share these interests.

    Communication skills. Travel agents must listen to customers, understand their travel needs, and offer appropriate travel advice and information.

    Customer-service skills. When customers need to make last-minute changes in their travel arrangements, travel agents must be able to respond to questions and complaints in a friendly and professional manner.

    Detail oriented . Travel agents must pay attention to details in order to ensure that the reservations they make match travelers’ needs. They must make reservations at the correct dates, times, and locations to meet travelers’ schedules.

    Organizational skills . Travel agents should have strong organizational skills because they often work on itineraries for many customers at once. Keeping client information in order and ensuring that bills and receipts are processed in a timely manner is essential.

    Sales skills . Travel agents must be able to persuade clients to buy transportation, lodging, or tours. Sometimes they might need to persuade tour operators, airline staff, or others to take care of their clients’ special needs. Earnings for many travel agents depend on commissions and service fees.

    Would a career as a Travel Agent be a good fit for you? Take our Career Test to find out .

    Pay [About this section ] [More salary/earnings info ] [To Top ]

    The median annual wage for travel agents was $34,600 in May 2012. The median wage is the wage at which half the workers in an occupation earned more than that amount and half earned less. The lowest 10 percent earned less than $19,930, and the top 10 percent earned more than $57,400. These wage data include money earned from commissions.

    Most travel agents work full time. Some work longer hours during peak travel times or when they must accommodate customers’ schedule changes and last-minute needs.

    Job Outlook [About this section ] [To Top ]

    Employment of travel agents is projected to decline 12 percent from 2012 to 2022.

    Clients who want customized travel experiences, such as adventure tours, will continue to require the expertise of agents. However, the ability of travelers to use the Internet to research vacations and book their own trips is expected to continue to suppress demand for travel agents.

    About 76% of all travel agents worked for travel arrangement and reservation services and about 60% worked for travel agencies. Approximately 17% were self-employed.

    Educational Requirements

    In order to become a travel agent one must have, at least, a high school diploma or the equivalent. Increasingly, because of the use of computers and technology, employers prefer job candidates who have received vocational training. Some aspiring travel agents choose to get a bachelor s degree in travel and tourism, although programs that offer this coursework are few.

    Some employers look for job candidates who have taken college courses in computer science, foreign languages, geography and world history.

    Other Requirements

    Travel agents must take continuing education classes in order to satisfy clients who, due to the Internet, are well-informed and expect expert advice. The Travel Institute offers experienced agents courses that lead to the Certified Travel Associate (CTA) and Certified Travel Counselor (CTC) designations. The Institute also offers marketing and sales skills development programs and destination specialist programs.

    To be a successful travel agent one must be well-organized, accurate, detail-oriented, professional and courteous. Good writing and interpersonal skills as well as sales ability are also necessary.

    Advancement Opportunities

    Before becoming travel agents, many in this field begin by working as receptionists or reservation clerks in travel agencies. Many travel agents start their own businesses. Those that do generally have prior experience working at an established agency.

    Employment of travel agents is expected to see little or no increase or decline in employment through 2018. The lack of growth can be explained by the fact that travelers are increasingly using the Internet to plan their trips while the lack of decline might be explained by the use of agents by travelers who are planning exotic trips and the need to replace agents who retire or leave their jobs.

    Travel agents earned a median annual salary of $30,790 in 2009.

    Substance Abuse Counselor Career Options and Employment Outlook #substance #abuse #rehabilitation

    Substance Abuse Counselor Career Options and Employment Outlook

    Sources: *U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics

    Substance Abuse Counselor

    Substance abuse counselors help patients who are struggling with substance abuse addiction, providing them with vocational training to help them transition back into a normal lifestyle. Counselors conduct both group and private sessions and crisis interventions. They also support family and friends of those who have loved ones affected by addiction.

    Substance abuse counselors must complete a bachelor’s degree in a field related to human or social services, such as social work, psychology, human services or psychiatric medicine. In addition, counselors are typically required to have at least two years of relevant experience, such as counseling in another field or volunteer work.

    Many states require licensure for substance abuse counselors, which may require occasional continuing education coursework. Many counselors obtain certification from a professional organization, such as the Association for Addiction Professionals or the National Board for Certified Counselors.

    Career Options

    Substance abuse counselors work in many different areas of the social services community. Many work in hospitals or clinics, particularly those that specialize in substance abuse. Others work in halfway houses, shelters, social services offices or penitentiaries to help addicts who are recovering from addiction. Counselors can work both independently or as part of a team. Experienced counselors, particularly those with graduate education, may go on to become counselor educators or supervisors.

    Employment Outlook

    According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), jobs for substance abuse counselors are expected to grow faster than the national average for all jobs and faster than counseling jobs in general. The BLS projected a 22% increase projected from 2014 to 2024. This increase may be due to a high rate of burnout within this particular branch of counseling in addition to more people seeking help for their addictions and other behaviors. Many counselors see patients with a high rate of setbacks and work with patients who are also dealing with homelessness or illnesses such as AIDS and hepatitis. The median annual salary for substance abuse counselors in 2015 was $39,980, with counselors employed by schools, educational support services and other ambulatory care facilities averaging more than $50,000 a year, according to the BLS.

    A variety of career options are available for future substance abuse counselors, and strong growth is expected in this field. Each of these options comes with its own rewards, and its up to you to find the one that’s most appealing and does the best at meeting your individual needs.

    MSc International Finance – Key Features #master #finance, #one #year #master

    MSc International
    Finance

    Key Features

    The HEC Paris MSc in International Finance (MIF) program caters for highly-motivated top achieving graduates looking to succeed in a career in finance and consulting. The program has a strong analytical focus yet is accessible from either business and finance (business track) or economics, math, physics, engineering (accelerated track) backgrounds.

    Flexible Curriculum

    A ‘tailored-designed’ approach towards education is at the core when designing programs at HEC Paris. This is shown in at least two aspects of the HEC Paris MSc International Finance curriculum.

    • The courses taken during the first semester depend on your experience before joining HEC Paris. If you have already covered basic financial accounting, investment theory and corporate finance, you will start finance classes at advanced level (business track). If you have not done so, you will start at a more basic level with significantly more class hours at an accelerated pace to enable you to cover the same material by the end (accelerated track)
    • The second semester is comprised of more than 40 Concentration as well as free electives. Students must choose a concentration between Corporate Investment Financing Policy, Corporate Restructuring, Corporate Strategy, Financial Engineering, and Capital Markets. Then, they have access to more than 15 free electives.

    Balance between theory and practice

    The number of hours spent in the classroom by HEC MIF graduates significantly exceeds international standards. Around half of that time will be spent in front of world class researchers. imparting you state-of-the-art knowledge. The other half will be spent in front of top-level practitioners. The latter is one of the many ways in which the learning experience at HEC Paris differs to most and adds another dimension to teaching. We feel it is important to complement theoretical teaching by using top researchers and practitioners lectures to give our graduates that extra edge over graduates from other institutions. The more competitive the environment, the more important having that extra edge is.

    Strong and cohesive peer group

    Who your peers are matters: with regards to the quality of your learning experience, the perception of potential employers and for the value of your network after you graduate. This is why academic performance is at the top of our admissions criteria. However at HEC we look for more than just academic excellence: smart, ambitious individuals will underperform without adequate interaction. We put a strong emphasis on group interaction and encourage it in any way we can. For instance:

    • Honours are granted on the basis of absolute GPA and not class percentile to make sure that no HEC MIF student can benefit from the underperformance of one of his or her classmates
    • A study trip is organized in the 3rd week of the program with all HEC finance students participating and interacting in both professional and non-professional activities

    Life Long Ties

    At HEC Paris, we pride ourselves on the fact that ties built on campus between both professors and students continue after students graduate and become alumni. Our alumni get directly involved in guiding the new generation of HEC MIF students and to make sure they achieve the same success as past students. A few examples:

    • Career and job training workshops the first week of the program
    • More than 250 students take part in the formal networking event on the London study trip… and many more at the less formal Friday night HEC Finance pub crawl: a unique opportunity to gain privileged access to young professionals from bulge bracket banks!
    • Finance event organized the 4th week of September

    International Diversity

    With 29 different nationalities making up the class of 2016. the International Finance program is equally as enriching on a cultural level. Working alongside a diverse group of nationalities can be highly educational and rewarding and is a true highlight of the program for many. London is the main hub for HEC MIF graduates in terms of placements although we also have alumni working in Continental Europe, Asia, Americas, and the Middle East.

    “From November 2011 through May 2012, the Western North Carolina Region started four contracts for acute services in the greater Charlotte, NC area. To write the task was challenging would be putting it mildly. The support of the BioMedical Dept. Education Dept. and Inventory Dept. were priceless. The one crucial area of support we needed was nurses; we simply did not have enough to support the explosion of growth. That’s when I turned to our Fresenius Healthcare Recruiter, Janeen Neale.

    Janeen completely understood our situation and was prompt to send the RN “cavalry” we needed! As the treatments grew each month (exponentially in one acute unit), I called on Janeen again for support. And again she delivered.

    I realize the expense that our region incurred because we utilized this terrific resource, but when you are demonstrating to your customers (i.e. hospitals) that we are the experts they believe us to be and that we know all about hemodialysis, the investment in a Fresenius Travel Nurse is worth it! Each nurse brought their UltraCare Customer Service skills to the front lines and delivered exceptional care to our patients. What more could you ask for?

    To the Travel Nurses who have served with us and still are, you have been nothing but a Blessing to our patients, our customers and to the rest of the Fresenius gang! With that said (written), I wish to give a heartfelt Thanks to the following Travel Nurses: Genene Mooney, Michelle Deadwlyer, Ericka Walker, Mark and Holly Hamilton and Corey Gatling. All of you are a welcome part of the Team!”

    Donna Bates, RN

    “In one year my confidence in my abilities of being a dialysis nurse has drastically risen. Our company has the best recruiters! Our company benefits outweigh the competitors. As far as traveling: I have hiked mountain paths as the fog rolled away to meet the morning sun; I have stood at the mist of Niagara Falls; felt the crisp of fall breaking while I was nestled up on a deck, which rested on the edge of a calm crystal-clear lake surrounded by mountains in Maine; I watched the sun rise over the ocean while waiting for my whale-watching tour to begin. My life is a new beginning.”

    Lisa Almand, RN

    “My name is Lisa and I have been a registered nurse for 32 years. I began employment with FMC in 2004, and transferred to the travel division one year ago. I have never regretted the decision to travel, and highly recommend it to anyone considering it for themselves. My recruiter is amazing, and always searches for areas in the states that I want to visit. She always sends me holiday wishes, and contacts me on a regular basis to ensure things are going well. I was in Colorado during the wild fires and she called to make sure I was alright. Even though she is miles away, I always feel like she is right there every step of the way. Ani in payroll will always make sure your reimbursement is accurate and timely. I have worked with staff from other companies, and I can assure you that FMC screens their employees and seek only the best of the best. There is a very high expectation of travelers, and the need is great.”

    So if you want a new adventure, and love dialysis as I do. come join the FMC team. It is a decision you will not regret making!

    Virginia Western Community College #virginia #western, #community #college, #roanoke #colleges, #virginia

    Virginia Western Community College – Celebrating 50 Years

    Beginnings.

    Per legislation, effective July 1, 1966, Roanoke Technical Institute (RTI) of Virginia Polytechnic Institute (Virginia Tech) and the Roanoke Center of the School of General Studies of the University of Virginia merged and became Community College of Roanoke. That summer, under the leadership of President Dr. Travis McKenzie, programs and faculty combined and began fall quarter classes with an enrollment of 1,352 students.

    During the first year of operating, the college was renamed Virginia Western Community College. In 1968, the first true class of Virginia Western students graduated.

    Growth and Expansion

    By 1970, new coursework in nursing, data processing, commercial art and traffic/transportation management were created in addition to existing engineering, business and liberal arts curricula. Student enrollment continued to increase and temporary classrooms were moved to campus. Still new in concept, campus was bustling with activity and students brought in events to form community and shape the school’s identity such as crowning a Miss Virginia Western, dances, and campus art shows outside.

    “I have no doubt that VWCC was instrumental in my career success. Your college gave me a solid foundation in Electronics Engineering (I finished my AS degree there in Spring of 1980), and I was able to transfer to Old Dominion University and received my Bachelors degree in the Spring of 1982 without missing a beat, VWCC prepared me very well for the transition to that institution!!”
    – Thomas W. “Tom” Richardson, Ph.D.
    University of Virginia Staff, Systems and Information Engineering (SIE) Dept.

    Increasing Access and Preparing for the Future

    Virginia Western Community College continued to expand access of its services and options for its students and the development of the community in terms of physical growth, workforce support, transfer to four-year colleges and the launch of a program further removing financial barriers to obtaining a college education.

    Similar to a half-century ago, another call-to-action was asked in the 2010s. Fifty years ago a knowledge gap was identified as the United States raced to compete as a technologically advanced nation. This time it is to close the skills gap. In this decade, Governor Terry McAuliffe identified a gap in high-demand jobs skills and called for a significant increase in workforce credentials to be awarded in Virginia in STEM-H (science, technology, electronics, math and healthcare).

    “I was a first generation college attendee and graduate. I barely graduated from high school but VWCC is where I found what I love and I was exposed to wonderful people who taught me and inspired me. Even now, when I interact with my students, I want them to like and love me the way I did Ann, Paula, and Marty.”
    – Misty L. Mesimer, RDH, MSCH, CDA
    Dental Assisting Program Director, Dental Hygiene Program Local Coordinator
    Germanna Community College

    August 22 is Virginia Western Community College Day!

    Now, Therefore, I, Sherman P. Lea, Sr. Mayor of the City of Roanoke, Virginia, recognize and commend Dr. Robert H. Sandel, President of Virginia Western Community College, along with the College’s many outstanding faculty, staff, students, alumni and supporters, and do hereby proclaim August 22, 2016, throughout this great All-American City, as “Virginia Western Community College Day.”

    – Sherman P. Lea, Sr.
    Mayor, City of Roanoke, Virginia

    The Ultimate Gap Travel Resource Website from the gap year –

    GAP TRAVEL

    The Ultimate Gap Travel Resource Website

    In the past decade gap travel has grown faster than any other type of travel.

    Whereas in 2001 there were just a handful of gap travel providers, now in 2011 there are getting on for 100 gap travel organisations, and many of these are handling thousands of travelling customers every year.

    Gap Travel has grown because taking a gap year or gap break has become the norm for young people leaving school or university. Now, with tuition fees presenting a financial threat to potential university students, and with the current poor employment prospects, many young people are thinking that they may just as well take a gap trip.

    Older people too are taking gap travel journeys. Most do not take a full year, and so the term gap year is being replaced by gap trip, or better…gap travel.

    People who take gap travel journeys are often referred to as gappers or gap travellers.

    Gap Travel can mean a journey lasting anything from a few weeks to a few years and there are many great  destinations available to people go on their gap travels, from Alaska to Zimbabwe. There are numerous possibilities of things to do and accomplish on a gap trip.

    It is important that students who are planning to go to university, or find a job upon their return, do something worthwhile on their gap travels, such as volunteering or undertaking paid work, or learning new skills such as how to sail or how to speak a foreign language. A gap trip spent simply having fun will not impress the university  admissions people or the employers nearly as much as a well structured and useful gap travel journey..

    Most people decide where to go on their gap travels first, then look at options for activities in the countries that they plan to visit, and there are lots of gap travel options, such as adventure travel, volunteering with local communities or with wildlife or conservation, paid work, learning new skills, learning a new language, taking tours and much more.

    We hope that this website will give you ideas about where you can go and what you can go on your gap travel journey.

    Early Childhood Special Education

    What is Early Intervention?

    Supports and services delivered to infants and toddlers from birth through age three who are not developing as expected or who have a medical condition that can delay normal development. Early intervention supports and services focus on increasing the child’s participation in family and community activities that are important to the family. In addition, supports and services focus on helping parents and other caregivers know how to find ways to help the child learn during everyday activities. These supports and services are available for all eligible children and their families regardless of the family’s ability to pay.

    Early Intervention Services are provided by the local Infant Toddler Connection program .

    What is Early Childhood Special Education?

    Services delivered to preschool aged children from age two (whose birthday falls on or before September 30) through five who experience a disability and require special education. Educators, along with the child’s family, develop an individualized education program (IEP) with goals and objectives to meet the child’s developmental needs. The goals and objectives include a variety of skills and/or activities for the child to learn and use consistently.

    Early Childhood Special Education (Part B of IDEA) and Early Intervention (Part C of IDEA), in Virginia, provide services for children from birth to Kindergarten age who qualify according to state and federal law. All localities in the state have services available for children in this age group who are eligible.

    Early Intervention services are provided for infants and toddlers with a disability. Infant and toddler with a disability means a child who is eligible to receive services in the Part C early intervention system up to age three who:

    • has delayed functioning;
    • manifests atypical development or behavior;
    • has behavioral disorders that interfere with acquisition of developmental skills; or
    • has a diagnosed physical or mental condition that has a high probability of resulting in delay, even though no current delay exists. COV § 2.1-760; 34 CFR § 303.16 (a).

    Preschool aged children from age two (whose birthday falls on or before September 30) through five with a disability may be found eligible for Early Childhood Special Education services under one or more of 14 disability categories, which are defined in the federal and state regulations:

    • autism
    • deaf-blind
    • emotional disability
    • hearing impairment
    • learning disability
    • intellectual disability
    • multiple disabilities
    • orthopedic impairment
    • other health impairment
    • speech or language impairment
    • traumatic brain injury
    • visual impairment / blindness
    • developmental delay

    The long term goal for our preschool aged children is for them to be as ready as possible to enter kindergarten. The earlier services are provided for children with disabilities, the better the long term prognosis. Children with special needs who have experienced support early in life do better in future settings.

    Smooth transitions from early intervention to early childhood special education and then into Kindergarten are important. Families, children, sending, and receiving programs all need to share information and support each other. Transition activities need to be timely to assure access to appropriate services for the child. The transition should also be smooth and seamless between programs, people, and services.

    Early Childhood Special Education services are provided by local school divisions. Local school divisions’ Special Education Departments should be contacted for specific information about their programs see the public school division directory .

    Additional resources are available for Early Childhood Special Education (ECSE) leaders responsible for administrative oversight of local ECSE programs. The Leadership in Effective And Developmentally-appropriate Services in ECSE (LEADS) website provides consistent information statewide to improve the collection, reporting, and use of ECSE indicator data; and connect, support, and empower local leaders to build capacity and provide high-quality programs and services throughout the state for young children ages 2-5 years with IEPs.

    Travel and Tourism one of the world’s largest foreign exchange earner among industries, provides employment directly to millions of people worldwide and indirectly through many associated service industries. A very wide industry, it includes Government tourism departments, Immigration and customs services, travel agencies, airlines, tour operators, hotels etc and many associated service industries such as airline catering or laundry services, Guides, Interpreters, Tourism promotion and sales etc. Travel and Tourism enterprises include major internationals with a workforce of thousands, to the small private travel agent with a handful of employees.

    Work in the travel and tourism industry is essentially concerned with providing services for people who are away from home, on business or holiday. Travel can be leisure travel involving package tours, pilgrim travel, adventure travel etc or purely business. Work at every functional level in the industry involves dealing directly with people. Travel agents assess the needs of tourists and businessmen and help them make the best possible travel arrangements from the many travel options available. Also, many major cruise lines, resorts, and specialty travel groups use travel agents to promote travel packages to the millions of people who travel every year.

    Travel company personnel must be up-to-date on current rules and regulations and documentation required, in areas like cargo, ticketing and passports, visas etc. so as to correctly advise their clients, and to take care of the paperwork when necessary. Besides this, all tourism staff in marketing, counter sales, or guide services, should be knowledgeable about the places their clients visit, in terms of general background, how to get there connections by air, rail and road and the facilities available.

    In India, Travel and tourism, as an industry, has been somewhat slower to take off than in many other places. However, with increasing worldwide interest in travel, and with the Government’s encouragement of its activities, it is undergoing massive expansion and improvement. This forecasts a bright future for all those who choose to make a career of travel and tourism. Young people with drive and a capacity for hard work can rise to top positions very quickly in travel and tourism or even head their own agencies. A job in the industry gives good returns as well as perks including opportunity to see many locales at low prices.

    Dawn Rosenberg McKay is a career planning professional with two decades of experience. She is the author of several books on this subject.

    About 76% of all travel agents worked for travel arrangement and reservation services and about 60% worked for travel agencies. Approximately 17% were self-employed.

    Educational Requirements

    In order to become a travel agent one must have, at least, a high school diploma or the equivalent. Increasingly, because of the use of computers and technology, employers prefer job candidates who have received vocational training. Some aspiring travel agents choose to get a bachelor s degree in travel and tourism, although programs that offer this coursework are few.

    Some employers look for job candidates who have taken college courses in computer science, foreign languages, geography and world history.

    Other Requirements

    Travel agents must take continuing education classes in order to satisfy clients who, due to the Internet, are well-informed and expect expert advice. The Travel Institute offers experienced agents courses that lead to the Certified Travel Associate (CTA) and Certified Travel Counselor (CTC) designations. The Institute also offers marketing and sales skills development programs and destination specialist programs.

    Continue Reading Below

    To be a successful travel agent one must be well-organized, accurate, detail-oriented, professional and courteous. Good writing and interpersonal skills as well as sales ability are also necessary.

    Advancement Opportunities

    Before becoming travel agents, many in this field begin by working as receptionists or reservation clerks in travel agencies. Many travel agents start their own businesses. Those that do generally have prior experience working at an established agency.

    Employment of travel agents is expected to see little or no increase or decline in employment through 2018. The lack of growth can be explained by the fact that travelers are increasingly using the Internet to plan their trips while the lack of decline might be explained by the use of agents by travelers who are planning exotic trips and the need to replace agents who retire or leave their jobs.

    Travel agents earned a median annual salary of $30,790 in 2009.
