Tirzah applied for a split hospitality placement to start in September 2012 with her friend Chloe.

Why did you decide to apply for an internship abroad?

I discovered HTE internships through a friend while looking for opportunities to gain either experience or further qualifications to extend my employment profile. HTE offers an opportunity to mix my professional goals with my passion, travelling. I have been lucky and have visited many cities across Europe, America, Asia, Africa and South America as a tourist. To be part of this internship means I can live and work while exploring new countries.

.

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

This internship will be a rewarding and exciting challenge to become more independent. It will also help me start my career in the hospitality industry. My ultimate dream is to own my own back packers hostel, so I am interested in the tourism and business aspects of this internship. This internship will add merit to my CV and will show employers I am adaptable, courageous and independent.

.

What made you choose six months in Australia and New Zealand?

Australia and New Zealand are countries I have always longed to visit. Whilst traveling I met a lot of people who are from Australia and New Zealand who highly recommended both and have said how different the two countries are so I wouldn’t want to miss the opportunity of experiencing both.

.

What are you most looking forward to in each country?

I am most looking forward to seeing how different it is working in the hospitality industry in Australia and New Zealand compared to in the UK. I am looking forward to gaining new skills and learning about both countries. In Australia I am really looking forward to visiting the Great Barrier Reef as I plan to see all 7 of the natural wonders of the world in my lifetime. I am also looking forward to going to the Sydney opera house and Ayers rock. I would also love to learn to surf during my stay. In New Zealand I am really looking forward to skiing and learning how to snowboard in the south islands, And visiting the gardens of Christ Church.

.

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

I hope to improve and expand my hospitality skills as well as learning about how to run and manage such big establishments. I also hope to achieve a better knowledge of both countries.

.

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

10 definitely a 10! I’m really looking forward to this as its something I’ve always wanted to do.
