Name: Jose Luis Toledo
Field: Business (Project Management in Tourism)
Why did you choose to complete an Internship?
Because work experience is always valuable, also, it is an excellent complement for the undergraduate degree once you finish university. The industry requires proficient professionals to overtake the current challenges and contribute proactively to the organisations goals.
What have you learned the most during your internship?
The main thing is about project management, try to follow deadlines and align efforts to collaborate within a team to get the projects over the line. In addition, I have acquired industry knowledge in Queensland, since I have been involved in a number of projects aim to develop capability and skills for the tourism and hospitality industry. I had such a wonderful host organisations, providing me with a valuable exposure to industry events and networking, as well as work meeting with stakeholders and the government.
Tell us what you are doing in your internship?
The company I work for is quite unique. It’s a large company with multiple departments that are connected through financial interests. One part of the company focuses on development and the other is one of the largest owners of retirement communities. I work under the second department, where I manage 7 villages’ monthly expenses. I am in charge of billing residents monthly and keeping up to date with corporate charges, outstanding balances, and miscellaneous fees within each village. I am so thankful for the amount of responsibility my organization has given me and I am so excited to learn and grow from them as I progress in this internship.
Do you have any advice for future interns?
My advice would be to challenge yourself. This goes for in and out of the workforce frankly. During my time in the office I make daily to do lists of tasks I need to complete within the hour and or by the end of the day. Yes it is very challenging and hard in the start but it has encouraged me to step out of my comfort zone and ask questions, think critically, and arrive at a conclusion. Even outside of the workforce, adjusting to a new environment can be difficult. I suggest getting involved in anyway you can whether that be sports, community service, a part-time job, and so forth, this is how you will meet people and enjoy your time much more.
What do you enjoy about Australia?
I love everything about Australia! I really have nothing bad to say about this place. Being based in Sydney provides me with so much opportunity in terms of sights to see, transit, accessibility to the beach, mountains, and city that is has been a blessing to live here thus far.
