AbstractI found my experience tour guiding at the Institute for Ocean technology challenging, yet enjoyable as well as rewarding. You always had to be prepared to answer any questions thrown at you, which proved slightly challenging if work was being done on a project you were unaware of the details. Asking your own question to find out all you could was essential in order to relay that information back to tourists. I found that acquiring new information was very interesting and made my job constantly refreshing. The enjoyment of learning new things, meeting new and interesting people and working with friendly coworkers was the highlight of my experience. Being rewarded by gaining valuable work experience was just a byproduct of a very enjoyable employment. My job entailed giving tours for the most part, but also included producing advertising techniques and spreading the advertisements across any form of media available. This included posters, brochures, radio stations, etc. Advertising is a really important part of the job as it garners a huge boost in the amount of tours. The more people know about it the more they are likely to come in for a tour. An underlying portion of the job also includes learning as much information as you can about the Institute and the work going on, so that you can provide that information on the tours. Keeping up on current projects as well as general fields of research that are worked on are a necessity.
