Ella applied in March for a New Zealand Hospitality Internship with HTE Internships. We asked Ella some questions about why she applied and what she is most looking forward to in New Zealand. You can check out what Ella said below.

.

.

Why did you decide to apply for an internship abroad?

I decided to apply for this internship because I really wanted to travel to New Zealand and to experience the other side of the world. The placement catered to what I needed to complete my placement year for University and looked like an amazing once in a life time opportunity.

.

What are you most looking forward to in New Zealand?

I am looking forward to experiencing a new way of life and to see the great things that New Zealand has to offer. My hobbies include horse riding and snowboarding so I am hoping I will have a chance to enjoy these sports while I am there.

.

What do you hope to achieve/ learn on your internship abroad?

During my time on placement I hope achieve more knowledge and skills in the industry. This will then hopefully help me once I graduate and pursue a career.  I hope to achieve a better perspective of the working industry and hopefully during my time on my placement it will become apparent which sector of the hospitality industry I want to eventually go in to.

.

How do you think future employers will view your time abroad?

I think employers will hopefully be impressed with my time abroad as it will show that I am independent and can happily travel if needs be. It will also reflect how I have put into practice what I have learnt at University and will be a great asset to my CV.

.

On a scale of 1 to 10, how excited are you?

I am reasonably excited at the moment but will be exceptionally excited once I have a placement confirmed.
