“Because of the seasonal and cyclical nature of tourism, the sector is
characterised by a high incidence of seasonal, part-time and casual
employment” (Weaver and Lawton, 2014, p. 243).
Students should initially read Chapter 8 of Weaver and Lawton on the
‘Economic Impacts of Tourism’ and should consider this quote in the
context of that chapter.

management advertised in Australia, which might be of interest to you in the future.

Essay:
oTo provide information for your essay students should log into the LMS site
for this subject and look at the e-book in the Assessment section, which
is, entitled “Career Opportunities – Resources for Essay”. This e-book
provides a variety of resources related to the various careers within the
tourism, hospitality and events sectors.
oUnusually for a university essay, students are permitted to use the term
“I” in this essay sparingly and only when relating to career section.
However, in all other aspects of the essay students should use formal
language and should avoid using casual language such as slang and
abbreviations. For example, instead of saying, “don’t” use “do not”; instead of
saying, “wouldn’t,” say “would not”, etc.
