Abstract

TThe Hospitality/Tourism Student’s Attitude toward the Timeshare Industry

Hospitality/tourism students were surveyed to determine their attitude toward the timeshare industry in order to assist timeshare human resource managers in their recruitment efforts. The study resulted in student responses in three different factor groupings based on their attitudes toward the industry. Results found that there were significant differences in student’s attitude towards timeshare industry and their sources of information for career choice, career choice factors, and their familiarity and experience with the segment.
