MBA Sustainable Leisure and Tourism Development, Hilfswerft gGmbH

Hello everyone,

I am 27 and currently graduating my Master in Sustainable Tourism Development and I would really love to work in that field. As it is quite difficult to find a job I thought I ask for swarm intellligence!

Have you any recommendations for job options or companies / organisations?

So far I worked for 5 years in the field of Social Entrepreneurship and bring experiences in event- and project management.

Love to hear from you :)

I would also advise you my dear that if you need to seriously start out a career in that field, you can seek out for volunteering opportunities at first and accumulate hands on experience.

Yes, the experience thing is kind of a problem right now as I already have experience but in a different field. The problem with volunteering is the question of salary as I have high living costs due to rent etc... but of course nothing comes from nothing. That's why I was seeking for recommendations.

Hello Henni!

Great that you're so brave and open-minded for seeking different opportunities!

I don't know specific companies that are hiring in the field right now, but I will share with you a few resources you might keep an eye on:

Female Factor
- They have a mentorship program for female leaders running now: www.femalefactor.global
- They might have other opportunities posted regularly (not in the field but something might come up)

Social Entrepreneurship Competition in Tourism (I'm working here now)
- We have a great pool of Jury and Mentors from the industry - all related to social entrepreneurship in tourism. I'd say have a look at their profiles and connect with them directly asking for either opportunities in the field or advice for finding some: socialtourismcompetition.com/jury

– We started creating an Opportunity Board for social entrepreneurs, still very early stage but we will try to keep it up to date with job, learning, volunteering, grant opportunities: socialtourismcompetition.com/opportunities

– Another option is to check out previous winning projects from the Competition and reach out to them seeking career opportunities: socialtourismcompetition.com/initiatives-2022

Prof. Claudia Broezel is a prof. of Sustainable Development in Eberswalde University – do you know her? Maybe you can also connect and reach out for some advice: socialtourismcompetition.com/about-us

Good luck and let's keep in touch!
