Today is the last day of 2014 and like a lot of you, I take time at the end of every year to review and assess my last twelve months.

In the past year I have posted 25 articles on Tourism Exposed, from how understanding the travel, tourism and hospitality industry advances your career, to how to prevent your career from taking over your life and owning you.

Here are the ones that you thought were the most helpful. You picked them; I just put them all in one place.

4. 5 Reasons Why You Should Work in Travel, Tourism and Hospitality: Twelve years ago I didn't see travel and tourism as a career, as I had no experience or knowledge of it.

This article reviews the 14 tourism trends you should pay attention to that provide promising career opportunities in travel, tourism and hospitality.

Since last March, when I launched Tourism Exposed, I've always said that this is the only industry that has allowed me the chance to travel and see the world and meet so many fascinating people, all the while growing my professional career quicker than I ever thought would be possible.

I believe smart people who want to become successful travel, tourism and hospitality professionals must learn about the unknown career opportunities that are available and how to use hidden job search strategies to get out of their rut, find their dream jobs and take control of their future.

That's why I spend so much time talking about the exact strategies I used to break into the industry – strategies that not only include your professional development but also your personal development as well. For example, your mindset about the industry overall and how to be resilient and get over self-sabotaging fears that stop you from having your dream job.

And we'll explore more strategies in 2015, one step at a time, together.

For now, enjoy tonight and have a great New Year. It's a privilege to write for you.

P.S. To kick off 2015, I'll be writing to you each week in January. Hints about what's coming:

  • The benefit of a strong personal brand to hiring managers
  • The importance of having a career emergency plan
  • New ways to work in travel, tourism and hospitality
