Tourism, Events and Aviation careers fall within various industries and are popular choices for many people. These areas have faced some challenges over the last five years with the financial crisis limiting the amount of international travellers coming to Australia.
However, record numbers of Aussies travelled overseas, contributing to growth in some occupations. For example in 2014, Tourism and Travel Advisers and Conference and Event Organisers made the top 10 Occupations list in the Administrative and Support Services industry.
Each career area and various roles within are set to grow nationally to 2019. Jobs in Airport Operations are projected to grow by 21.1%, Travel and Tour Arrangement Services by 4.8% and positions such as Conference Organisers by 23.9%.
