Why did you choose to complete an Internship?

Whether an internship is paid, for academic credit, unpaid or not-for-credit, it doesn't change its value. For me, Internships are an investment in my future. By doing an internship I gain real world experience, it gives me the opportunity to gain hands-on training in a professional environment. It also gives me the opportunity to expand my networking, which is so important in the hospitality industry.  I can also learn how to communicate in a professional way. Completing an Internship will help me to build my resume and make it even stronger because employers are much more likely to hire someone with internships and work experience rather than someone with a generic resume or lacking experience. 

     

What have you learned the most during your internship?

Time management is the most important thing that I have learned during my internship. I have learned how important time management is in the real world, how every minute counts and worth the penny. By knowing how to manage my time, I feel that I can be more efficient in my workplace. I also learned about teamwork, where teamwork is a crucial thing in food and beverage industry. When we work together as a good team, we will achieve a good result from the customers, and when there is a happy customer, it will just simply makes me happy and make my day.

 

What benefits do you feel AI contributed to your internship and time in Australia?

AI is really helpful to my internship and my time in Australia. They always helped me and gave me support from the beginning until the end of the internship programme.  Australian Internships also helped me to keep on the right track, they always give me a better solution for every problem. For me, chose AI for my internship career in Australia was the best choice that I've ever made because they really find the best workplace for me as well. By came along to do my internship from AI, it gave me a chance to be trained as a leader and supervisor which is good for my future career.

 

What advice would you give future interns?

Make friends as much as you can, travel every site of Australia, and don't forget to learn about the history! While you're in Australia, you have to make lots of friends and learn about their cultures either from Australians or any foreigner. Every single city in Australia has different things to see! From the buildings, the weather, and also the lifestyle. Then the history, this is a must thing to know and learn! I learned so many histories about Australia from the history of Aboriginal people until the famous Australian bushranger, Ned Kelly! Last but not least, don't you forget to try Vegemite!

 

What do you enjoy most about Australia?

I could say that traveling is one of my passions. I love to see different things and this is what I like about Australia! Australia offers me so many new things to see and experience. As I am working on the beautiful island called Moreton Island which is the 3rd largest sand island in the world, it gives me an unforgettable experience, and I am really in love with the beaches. I became friends with so many people from different nationalities and Australia just simply gives me a whole new perspective about everything! I also love the diversity in Australia, where everyone always respects each other's culture. I could say that Australia is my favourite country so far!

Rachael Bromage

INTERNSHIP PROGRAM MANAGER

 

Like most Australians, I love to travel. I try to holiday overseas at least once a year and I am always planning my next adventure.  I've been to Asia, USA and Europe but I am still yet to see a lot of things in my own backyard!  I also have a love of food and not just any food but dishes that have been created so that every element on that dish explodes with flavour and textures in your mouth. I guess you could say my love of travel and food has originated from my time in the hospitality industry and the opportunities I had to dine the hotel’s restaurants and stay with the hotel’s sister properties at home, Asia and the USA

 

How would I describe my work?

As the Hospitality Program Manager, I source internships for young students and recent graduates in either the Food and Beverage, Kitchen or Front Office Departments of hotels and resorts across Australia. I have a hospitality and human resources background, so I have developed relationships with key contacts in the industry over the years, which is beneficial to facilitating placements.

What do you like the most about your work?

The people and success stories. Having experienced working in the hospitality experience myself, I know and understand that it takes dedicated and committed people to become true hospitality professionals. So to be able to find placements for young professionals who have that energy in them already is a real delight!
