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

I’ve always wanted to go travelling around the world; originally I was looking at America, but when I saw the advert for Australia is caught my eye and I knew I wanted to go. The hospitality and catering industry is an amazing field for learning and working in, anywhere you go, you can work in this trade. It’s not all the same either, that’s why I’m looking forward to seeing how it is run in another country. I am also looking forward to seeing all the sites in Australia and meeting new people!

.

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

I feel that this will be valuable experience as it will look great on my CV, showing that I am capable of taking big steps on my own. I’m sure that this will help me learn many skills which I am interested in learning, and to improve my knowledge for the industry in the future.

What are you most looking forward to in Australia?

Apart from the weather, the beaches and seeing the sites?! … It would be the challenge of living in a different country and working there!

.

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

I hope to achieve many new skills and knowledge, of which I can take with me once I leave. I would also love to learn many things about Whitsundays Islands, as it seems very fascinating.

.

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

10! How can anyone not be excited?!
