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

As part of my University course, it was an option to take a placement year but as soon as I saw the presentation at my University I knew I wanted the chance to work in Hospitality in Australia for the year.

.

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

I think having my placement year in Australia for such exceptional resorts would develop my knowledge and skills massively and I would gain experience in areas that I couldn’t develop anywhere else, this placement would defiantly better me for my future career.

.

What are you most looking forward to in Australia?

I am mostly looking forward to be gaining experience and new skills in the Australian Hospitality Industry and to see the country as I have never been before and also to meet new people from different places around the world.

.

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

I hope to gain as many new skills and experiences that will help me excel in my future career and also to experience Australian cultures and see the amazing country.

.

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

I think future employers would value the fact I moved to a different country for a year in a new environment to enhance my skills to achieve the career I really want. It also proves that I can work in different location with a different customer variety. Also gaining the experience of working in Australia is something very distinctive and which i think my future employers would respect.

.

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

Out of 10, I would say I am 8 as moving away from family could be hard but I know when I’m on the plane ill be a definite 10!
