Why did you decide to apply for an internship abroad?

Australasia is a part of the world I have never visited but have always wanted to. An internship in New Zealand proved a viable way of doing this, whilst gaining vital skills that will help my personal and professional development.

.

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

I think that working in a top class holiday destination will allow me to acquire many new skills that I will be able to put to good use in my future career. I also feel that exposure to different cultures will broaden my horizons in an increasingly diverse world.

.

What are you most looking forward to in New Zealand?

I am looking forward to experiencing living in a different country for the first time. I would also like to try some new activities, such as bungy jumping, jet boating and scuba diving, and sample some local hangi!

.

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

I hope to expand my experience in the hospitality sector by working in a top class hotel. It is also very important to me to gain more experience in the events industry, as this is the sector I wish to build my career in.

.

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

I think that having international experience on my CV will really make me stand out from the crowd. I think it would make employers see me as an independent, determined and capable individual, which are all descriptions I would like to be associated with.

.

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

10!
