Most people associate the word "tourism" with traveling to other countries or hiking trips. However, they also designate a specialty. Therefore, many people have a question: tourism - what kind of profession is it? It is especially relevant for future graduates finishing the last grades of the school, because they have to make a difficult choice of the direction to which they will devote their labor activity.
Tourism is understood as the movement of a person to another country or area, and a specialist in the field of tourism is a person who works in the provision of services related to tourism. I must say that this area unites a lot of very different and dissimilar professions. Among them:
The first travelers who left their native land not forcedly, but voluntarily to see other countries, first appeared in Ancient Greece. One of them is Aristeus of Proconnes, who lived in the 7th century BC. He assured that he had reached the very Ural Mountains. However, it is quite reasonable to question such a distance of his travel: after all, the Greek claimed that he saw people with dog heads and one-eyed giants in these parts.
Another famous Greek traveler is the historian Herodotus. In the 5th century BC, he visited the territory of modern southern Ukraine and the south of Russia. However, neither in the time of Aristeus, nor during the life of Herodotus, there were simply no special people who helped travelers. For the first time, such specialists began to appear in ancient Rome. This was due to the development of transport infrastructure in the Roman state: roads of excellent quality made it possible to easily move around the territory of the Apennine Peninsula and even across the rest of continental Europe. It was in Ancient Rome that the beginnings of a tourist service appeared: services for renting horses and carts, roadside taverns, hotels.
They did not stop traveling in the Middle Ages. First of all, travel at that time was associated with pilgrimage to holy places. Sometimes for this, people overcame great distances and went to other continents.
In its modern form, the concept of tourism appeared only in the 19th century. The very word "tourism" was first introduced into use by the French writer Henri Stendhal, who modified the word "tour", which in translation means "walk". It was then that outdoor recreation and picnics began to come into fashion. Very soon, with the development of technology and the advent of ships that were propelled by steam engines, as well as trains, travel to other countries became popular. After all, now the movement was much faster.
In its modern form, the profession of tourism emerged only in the twentieth century. It was then that airplanes, comfortable and fast passenger ships and high-speed trains became available to travelers. This made it possible to quickly move to almost anywhere in the world and gave a huge impetus to the development of the tourism industry. As a result, the professions associated with travel and tourism began to develop. Today they are in demand in the labor market around the world. That is why tourism is a profession worth mastering. Her representative is unlikely to remain without work. In addition, he has the opportunity to earn good money.
These are the tasks and responsibilities of a specialist (for example, a tourism manager):
In Moscow, a specialist earns from 40,000 to 80,000 rubles, and in the regions his salary ranges from 25,000 to 40,000 rubles. In addition, in addition to the salary, the representative of the profession receives a certain percentage of the amount received from transactions concluded with clients. This increases his income.
Both in Moscow and in other cities of Russia, the graduate will not have any problems with employment - tourism specialists are quite in demand.
