.

Why did you decide to apply for a hospitality placement internship aboard?

I have always wanted the chance to work aboard and I felt this is a once in a life time opportunity that I couldn’t miss. I will be meeting new people, learning a different culture as well as working in an industry that I enjoy it seemed too good to be true!

.

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

I think as a whole experience it will help me from a career perspective as well as developing me as a person.

.

What are you most looking forward to in Australia?

I am most looking forward to learning new skills as well as developing previous ones. I want to be able to see how hotels are run differently compared to the one I have previously worked in. I want to broaden my knowledge on different varieties of food and wines.

I have always wanted to go to Australia so just having the chance to go is exciting prospect for me. There are the added bonuses of the stunning beaches, the hot weather, and the chance to try out different water sports and meet new people from different backgrounds.

.

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

I am very keen on pursing a career in hospitality so from this experience I want to learn more about the hotel management. I hope from my time in Australia it will polish my service skills and make me more confident in my approach in providing the best customer service.

It will be interesting to see the hospitality industry from a different, cultural approach. I am looking forward to the chance of working with a group of new people who are in the same position; I want to learn from my fellow international co-workers from their prior experience and backgrounds.

.

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

I hope future employers will see that I am willing to work in different environments, and am committed to furthering and broadening my knowledge of the industry by going half way across the world. I hope it helps develop my skills further and make me a more confident and independent person.

.

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

10!! If I could go now I would.
