Why did you decide to apply for an internship abroad?

I have always wanted to go travelling and I thought that completing my degree first would make travelling easier. However when my university told me that I could take a year internship aboard I jumped at the opportunity.

.

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

I have been to Australia before and have family out there so i originally wanted to go there, however the opportunity to work whiles the rugby world cup is on is amazing and will look good to future employees.

.

How do you think this will help you in the future?

I get the chance to go somewhere different, experience a new cultures and way of life also I feel that taking this year out will make me feel of more of a grown up by experiencing new things by myself.

.

What are you most looking forward to in New Zealand?

Rugby World Cup and working in a busy hotel.

.

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

I hoping I can develop some of my original skills but also learn more. For example I have a small amount of bar skills which I have gained in college and at university however I have never worked in a busy bar environment and hopefully I will get the opportunity to work within a bar and learn more.

.

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

I would have to say 10 as I feel this year out will be the making of me 😀
