Travel & Tourism Diploma 5 Star CITC Endorsement Alumni – Valedictorian –

Just Plain Awesome!

After being at a job for 6.5 years, and getting laid off via a mailed letter, I knew that I had to change careers and industries. Travel had always been a passion of mine, so I decided to make it a career. I researched different schools and interviewed them all, and Canadian Tourism College came out on top. I opted for the Travel & Tourism Diploma (5 Star CITC Endorsed), and it was the perfect fit. The instructors were enthusiastic, informative, extremely helpful and supportive. Every single one wanted to see you succeed.

Upon many things we were given some information about, one piece still resonates with me. We were told that the job you initially came to school to get isn't going to be the one you're going to want to leave with. I thought this was interesting. At the time I was fully set on working for Club Med, or being on a cruise ship working abroad or doing group travel with an adventure travel company, and now that I've graduated I work as a Destination Wedding Planner / Travel Agent.

Instead of working a boring, mundane 9-5 job, I work 9 till whenever. There are always wine & cheese parties, BBQ's, seminars and fantastic FAM trip opportunities. Now in my life there is never a dull moment.

I am happy I made the decision to go to CTC. The knowledge, the support, and the classroom material is so relevant that I constantly thank my lucky stars I got the education I did or else I would be lost. A huge thanks goes to the instructors, for being a driving force behind my success, as well as the rest of the CTC staff who were just as helpful a long the way.

Thank you.
