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

i decided i would like to do an internship abroad because I’m passionate about the hospitality industry. i am excited to see how hospitality differs all over the world. i chose Australia because it has always been one of my ambitions to go to the other side of the world, and in my opinion there is no better way than this kind of internship.

.

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

i hope future employers will look at my time abroad as a valuable experience, i could of applied to do an internship close to home but i didn’t want to, hopefully future employers will recognise how i took myself out of my comfort zone, flew 10000 miles to Australia to experience new things.

.

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

I am getting more excited as its getting nearer the time so I’m at about 8.5 at the moment, but when i get on the plane I’m sure it will be 10/10.
