Abstract

The purpose of this study was to produce a human resources database for Szeged city, to determine the main professional features of the participants in tourism in general and eco-tourism in particular, and to detect migration willingness with special interest to qualifications, language skills and wages. Altogether 875 people working in tourism filled in the questionnaires consisting of 371 questions. Regarding the location of the workplace, the areas within the Inner Boulevard and Ujszeged were the most important. The ratio of female workers was higher only in the tourism infrastructure and among those who planned to work in Hungary, out of Szeged, within the next 5 years. Older age categories were qualified in substantially higher ratio, while younger age groups were remarkably concerned in mobility. Language skills were important especially for those, who were interested in mobility.
