What kind of job in tourism industry that I can work remotely and get to travel around the world?
Hi there! I am currently a third-year student in tourism field. I am likely to have the image in my mind that I want to work as a freelancer or travel agent where I get to travel around traveling career GivingisCaring
Starting a travel blog & social account is a great way to get going. As a tourism major, you already have some insights and expertise into a hugely popular industry, so your audience is essentially limitless. With enough followers, you'll eventually be able to negotiate media rates and other perks at resorts and travel companies.
It's also a great way to start networking in your industry, which in turn can land you that dream job of travel and flexibility while also providing some stability.
This is a tough time for the travel industry, but when we're finally putting this pandemic behind us, I think you'll find the tourism industry ready for a dramatic rebound, full of pent-up demand, which makes right now the perfect time to prepare. Good luck!
At first - this will not be a lucrative business. But, as you build your following, you will find new monetization avenues such as being an amazon affiliate, ad revenue from your website, partnering with companies you like for sponsorships and so on.

Just like the two previous comments, starting a travel blog is one way to go! The road might be challenging (as you're building your following) but you need to remember to not give up and also continue to post content. After the pandemic is behind us, you could even get certain work visas to certain countries, my friend went and worked at a hotel in Ireland for a bit and loved it!
