Tourism

Each country guide includes forecasts for sectors that are specific to that country.  For example, this section covers the tourism sector in Spain, including hiring trends and areas of job promise.

Below is a brief excerpt from this section:

Employment Outlook

The Spanish tourism sector saw unprecedented employment growth in recent years. However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this vibrant industry and large job market is in crisis. As hotels, restaurants, shops and travel services were forced to close during the lockdown, and many foreigners canceled vacations, experts calculate that losses in this sector impacted almost 15% of the national GDP.

While jobs in this sector will be very limited in the near and middle-term future, the majority of offered positions will remain seasonal or temporary contracts, particularly the hospitality fields and entertainment.

Areas of Job Promise

Traditionally, the major hubs for summer and high season tourism work are Catalonia, Valencia, the Balearic Islands, the Canary Islands, Madrid and Andalusia. While experts predict that national tourism flows will increase as travel restrictions are lifted, it is likely that jobs in most tourism businesses will be limited in the short term.

This is just a brief sample of the extensive information in the GoinGlobal Spain Career Guide, which is carefully researched and regularly updated by career experts.
