Travel insights from Diane Petras, CTIE, President of The Travel Institute

Is the New Year Just in Time for Your New Career?

The new year is always exciting! It represents additional time to focus and hit your own personal refresh/reset button. It brings new energy for goal setting and commitment, along with an abundance of ideas, how-to guides, and advice for how to make it all happen.

So, if you are looking to reset your career and become a travel professional, you are in just the right place at just the right time!  Indeed, the entire Travel Institute team is here to guide you along your journey as you venture into your own Trip of a Lifetime.

The Travel Institute trains more than 2,000 students each year. Along with learning about travel and how to book it, we also help you set realistic goals, expose you to the right network, and help you become a true travel professional every step of the way.

You will travel, have many new experiences, share best practices, and soon become a global ambassador. Sounds wonderful – and it is – but one should not underestimate the time and resources needed for success. The position requires a disciplined approach, an understanding of how the distribution chain works, the role of technology, networking know-how, and more. We’ll train you to be a travel expert and a savvy business person, but you’ll also need patience and a deep desire to work with travelers, counseling them to ensure they make the best choices for themselves.

Consider who and what will get you there. Your education begins with The Travel Institute, but your commitment, drive, network and relationships play a key role in your ramp up, too. This is where viral marketing begins. We are here to help you get started.

We are also here for ongoing education and certification. And we are here to coach, encourage, support, and celebrate your success every step of the way!

Are you ready to hit the reset button on the new year and your new career? How about we do it together?

Cheers to your New Year, New Career! I guarantee, it will be your TRIP of a lifetime!

Diane Petras, CTIE, President of The Travel Institute
