After completing her degree in BA (Hons) in Tourism Marketing, Luisa Golz is now working in the tourism industry in Galway

"In 2015, I successfully completed the BA in Tourism Marketing course in WIT. I really enjoyed my time in WIT as the lecturers were very helpful and the course content was varied and well balanced. The lectures were never crowded which created a good learning environment. After graduating in 2015, my next step was to either pursue further education or to get a job.

Having a degree in tourism and marketing helped me to secure employment in the tourism industry. After only two months of job hunting I was offered a position with Hillwalk Tours Ltd in Galway. I was delighted to pursue my career in the field that I had dedicated three years of studying to.

Starting as a member of the Sales and Operations Team, I quickly integrated. I was mainly responsible for liaising with customers, selling and booking the walking tours. Recently I have started to work in my new position, as part of the product team. I am now employed as Product Coordinator and the focus for this position lies on enhancing our product offering, dealing with customer feedback and sourcing new suppliers."
