Join Date: Dec 2010
Hey guys this is my first ever creation, it's a 'Travel Agent' career. Are the job levels and descriptions accurate/okay? I need feedback!!!
TRAVEL AGENT CAREER
» Brochure Stocking
"Want to break into the Travel Industry? Well everyone has to begin somewhere! Even if your work doesn't relate to Travel atleast your on the scene and are kean to work, up is the only direction! It may be long hours and little pay but it will all be worth it!"
» Travel Agency Apprentice
"Atleast your out of thosee dreadful overalls! Spending less time bending over shelves, your work now relates to travel! Assisting colleagues in many tasks such as Vacation Planning and Database work, you may still sometimes find yourself stocking shelves, but hay!"
» Travel Agent
"Sitting at a desk assisting others in Vacation planning may not be the highlight of your career, but the money's bertter. On behalf of famous airlines such as Virgin Airways, SIM airlines, you offer great value holiday packages, work hard and you make own the place!"
» Travel Agency Manager
"Finally! Your earning bigger simeleons! Incharge of the staff and with more flexible working hours your really making a name for yourself in the industry! Responsible for everything that happens in your branch, atleast you don't have to handle angry Tourists anymore!"
» Holiday Planner
"Now you're no longer working for the Agency, you begin to plan holidays for famous airways you really do rake more money in! Accomodation, Flights, Tickets, it may be a stressful job but somebody has to do it and it pays well!"
» Luggage Clerk
"Now your officially working in the Airport. Sitting at a desk checking bags in and out all day long may not be the most exciting part of this career but it's good money, and its a sturdy job. Keep on working hard and you may find yourself working in HIGHER places."
» Air Host(ess)
"WOW! A member of the Cabin Crew, it seems like only yesterday you was stocking Brochures. Pushing the refreshment tray, demonstrating the life support. It's tiring work, physically and mentally but it gives you a chance to explore!"
Level 8» Cabin Crew Manager
"If anything goes wrong, it's your job to consult with the Pilot. You have total control over the other members of the Cabin Crew, the money is amazing and exploring the world, what could be better?"
» Airline Director
"Back on the Ground again, your incharge of Security, Immigration, Stores, Check-In, Luggage for your Airline. Everything rests in your hands! Makes a mistake and it may just cost you your job! Be careful!"
Level 10» Airport Manager
"Now Literally, EVERYTHING rests in your hands. Not only are you responsible for one airline, but all of them! Be careful and make desicions wisely as it could create a huge impact on those around you!"

It looks good, but the main thing that springs to mind is that an airline director is probably more senior than an airport manager; and it would also be a pretty big feat to go from cabin crew manager to airline director, or even airport manager, they're not really the same career path.

The progression seems a bit odd to me - for example, I would say that an airline luggage clerk is likely to be further down the employment pecking order than a Travel Agency Manager - the manager is likely to be managing other people whereas the clerk is just keeping track of data and luggage. The manager would need higher level work skills. Maybe you could reorder the progression and think of it as a career in travel which moves back and forth between two (or more) travel-themed locations (the travel agents, airline and the airport) rather than worry about the idea of progressing from a travel agency to airline to the airport. That would make sense of the airline/airport posts which aren't really related to travel agents in real life.
The other thing I would say is get your writing checked - there are a lot of errors in your grammar and spelling. I know people are sensitive about this topic, so sorry to bring it up but there really are a lot of errors and I, for one, would find that off-putting enough not to download.

I would put levels as
Mail room Person
Call Centre Operator
Travel Agency Apprentice
Agency Sales (people who just organise large groups)
Travel Agent Manager
Travel destination Route Planner (jet sets around the world planning destinations)
Travel Agent Owner/operator
Just a guideline of course you dont have to use it. Being in the travel industry myself I can see straight away that you have three completley different careers. you have a travel agent, and then a groundstaff CSA at the airport, and a cabin crew attentant. If you want them to be a travel agent then sticking to that area is good! You could also instead of starting them in the mail room have them start as A Travel and Tourism School Lecturer who gets sick of dealing with teenagers just out of High school who think its such a glamourous business!
Good luck, if you get it done would work well with my Airline Groundstaff career!

Sorry for the inaccuracy, i shouldn't of called it Travel Agent, I wanted to squeeze all my favourite jobs from the tourism/travel genre into one career for my sims, and didn't know if anyone else wanted to share it

Yea, I would share it. But I would change the title of it thats all. So instead of Travel Agent, how about Traveler, or Expert Tourist, or something close to that. Also, if you really want more people to download it, you should add in some chance cards. That really adds the extra punch. If you need some help e\writing them, I would love to help.

Are you planning on having a a career reward object?
I don't mind if you call me "MSD" or something for short.
Perhaps someday I'll have leisure time back...
