Vacation-related jobs are as varied as types of vacations themselves. Many vacation jobs are associated with travel, lodging, food, entertainment, or leisure. Together, these occupations provide many opportunities -- and many have few requirements for workers who are new to the jobs. In certain settings, almost any occupation can be a vacation job. However, some occupations focus primarily on vacations. This article takes a closer look at four jobs specific to entertainment and leisure: cruise ship musician, destination marketing manager, resort activities director, and river rafting guide. Cruise ship musicians often have other responsibilities besides practicing and performing. In planning a vacation, or in planning what to do while on vacation, you've probably encountered the work of destination marketing managers. Communication is a big part of destination marketing managers' job -- and not just talking to others, which they do a lot. Many vacation workers enjoy meeting new and interesting people, whether they're colleagues, vacationers, or local residents.
