My internship on Hamilton Island

Rebecca Oakley, Front Office, Wed, 10 December 2008

"My internship on Hamilton Island is going great, I've learnt a lot and am loving the island lifestyle. Swimming in the ocean every day, going sailing and playing loads of sport is definitely more of a working holiday. But definitely facing new challenges every day".

Winnie's is going really well!

Cameron Finlayson, interned at Winnies Restaurant, F&B, Tue, 9 December 2008

"Winnie's is going really well! I've learnt SOO much over the last two and a bit years, it's been awesome! I think QRC can take a lot of that credit, because while I've learnt a lot on the job, I would've been in over my head without QRC! I have been recommending it to other people interested in Hospo"!

QRC provided me with...

Josh Davies, interned at the Copthorne Auckland, Front Office/Porter, Mon, 8 December 2008

"QRC provided me with a basic understanding of all the departments in a hotel, what the internship did was to increase my understanding and taught me how all the departments interact in a real world environment."

I want to be involved

Toby Nolen, interned at Rakiura Kayaks, Stewart Island as a Kayak Guide, Sun, 7 December 2008

"I can tell you that choosing my own internship has put me in a great position to learn about the type of company I want to be involved in, in the future. Working in a small scale business means I'm involved in every aspect of the running of it. As well as guiding most days I'm also teaching school groups, helping with promoting and advertising, bookings, stock-taking, gear-checking, even cleaning the work van! Having the choice meant I am working somewhere relevant to my future instead of just working in the industry".
