Travel jobs are booming in 2018, according to travel industry experts.
Travel-related jobs increased by 2.4% last year and a record-high 1.5 million jobs are now open, according the Travel Industry Association.
The group is pushing to create more jobs for travelers by allowing employers to take a cut of their work from travelers.
The industry, which has been growing at a rapid pace, has about 20% of the nation’s job market and employs more than 9 million people.
Traveling to destinations like Europe and Asia and taking advantage of travel discounts like the Black Friday travel promotion are some of the most popular travel-related opportunities, said Chris D’Agostino, executive director of the association.
The group said it expects to add 1.2 million jobs in 2019.
