Study Tourism in USA

Study tourism in usa provides international students an amazing opportunity to gain an education and career in one of the world’s premier tourism destinations – home to numerous universities, colleges, certificate/training programs and an ever-improving economy – making it an attractive place to study and work.

Tourism and recreation industry seems resilient in the face of COVID-19 impacts, reflecting its centrality to local, regional, and global economies. Front-line workers in this field tend to be younger college-age students; therefore they could be adversely affected by layoffs during a pandemic.

Recent survey of USM undergraduates examined the impacts of pandemic on student employment and work experience. It was found that prior to its onset, 44% of USM working students held non-tourism jobs while 25% worked tourism related positions. After pandemic began most remained within their same category while some moved onto other industries with non tourism jobs (13%); some even transitioned into unemployed categories (9).

Most students that remained in tourism jobs intended to continue working over summer and fall 2021, particularly those in front-line roles. Higher pay was the top incentive offered, followed by regular hours, end of COVID-19 implementation, and improved cleaning/public health measures.
