Welcome to the TOA Internship Program! Our program provides college and university students with the opportunity to gain practical experience in the travel industry through internships with member companies of the Tour Operators Association.
Our goal is to provide a hands-on learning experience that helps students develop the skills and knowledge necessary to succeed in the travel industry. Interns can expect to work on a variety of projects and tasks, gaining valuable experience in areas such as marketing, sales, operations, customer service, and more. Additionally, interns will have the opportunity to network with industry professionals and gain insights into the latest trends and innovations in the travel industry.
We welcome students from all backgrounds who are interested in pursuing a career in the travel industry, whether you are a marketing major, hospitality student, or have a passion for travel. Our program is designed to be flexible and customizable, with internships ranging in length from a few weeks to several months, depending on the needs of the member company and the availability of the intern.
As a TOA intern, you will receive support and guidance throughout your internship experience, including regular check-ins and feedback from your member company supervisor. We believe that the internship program provides a valuable opportunity for both students and member companies, helping to build a pipeline of talented and motivated individuals for the future of the travel industry.
