Take a Perma-Vacation With These Ten Jobs in Travel

Maybe there's nothing holding you back from moving to your favorite vacation spot except for that little thing called a paycheck. Fear not, CareerBuilder has developed a list of ten jobs in travel and tourism that help keep vacationers happy. And, they say, leisure and hospitality are projected to increase by almost 2 millions jobs in 2006 and account for 15 million jobs in 2016.

CareerBuilder acknowledges that most of these jobs don't offer much in terms of money, but suggests their benefits lay in the flexible hours, enjoyable atmosphere, and opportunities to meet new people. Any other ideas for other jobs that might be more lucrative monetarily?

i've always loved the idea of getting into management at a swanky hotel chain - obviously the job itself would be a eight-to-five (or more) like traditional full time jobs, but there could be amazing hotel sites and those chains are known to hire from within and transfer trained employees from site to site as they request.

i don't know if i would want to work at an amusement park cause people are always so testy there - but i was a life guard for years and that one was fun! it's definitely the best way to spend your summer if you love to swim and get a tan.
