Our recent graduate Anne S. states, I have found my experience with Career Quest for the home based travel agent program invaluable. I had been in the cruise travel industry for 12 years, but began a different endeavor back in 2008. Happily, eight years later I am getting back in the industry. I found that the changes in the processes, products (ships and itineraries), and technology geared toward the industry had changed drastically. At first I was skeptical doing an online program, as I was worried that I wouldn't have enough support. I was pleased to find that there is always someone to contact with questions and they provide immediate and quality feedback. The education I received from Career Quest (including learning to market myself, creating business plans, etc.) gave me not only tremendous resources, but most important the confidence to get back to the career I love.”
