Take your career to a new and exciting destination.
Are you customer-service oriented, highly motivated and interested in a new career as a travel professional?
Our goal is to develop both the knowledge and experience you need to become a travel professional so that you can potentially work as an employee or independent contractor with a Travel Leaders Group wholly owned, franchise or member-based agency. As part of the program, participants who complete the modules will work with a career counselor who will help find an appropriate mentor to provide valuable, on-the-job experience.
Want to love your job?
Did you know that being a travel agent is one of the Happiest Jobs in America? When it comes to work, you should love what you do. Dan Buettner, author of The Blue Zones: Lessons for Living Longer from the People Who’ve Lived the Longest, says those looking for career happiness should “go for bliss, not for bucks.”
Have you heard that travel agents today don’t make any money or travel?
It’s not true. According to the American Society of Travel Agents (ASTA) salary tool experienced travel agents working for a larger organization can earn between $30,000 and $67,000. Many travel agents work on commission, so you decide how much you want to earn. Think travel agents don’t travel? Well they do. In fact they travel all over the world on destination and product familiarization trips and vacations. There are plenty of deals offered for travel industry professionals; sometimes it’s just a matter of choosing.
"The travel business is as robust as ever, and the Travel Leaders of Tomorrow program intends to infuse it with fresh energy and talent, which will continue to sustain it for years to come.”
