Are there any particular areas of hospitality that you are most interested in getting involved in?

I’m really looking forward to getting into Event Management. I think this is the best path for me, as I feel my communication skills will get me a long way. Also, as electives, I would look to do sports management subjects.

 

Can you describe for me where you are hoping your career in event management will take you?

I’m looking at being an event manager, running big events and managing how it goes. Also looking to be a potential hotel manager if my career takes me that direction. 

 

My favourite thing about the Day in the Life was the nature of the lecturers and instructors. I think they brought a very chilled nature which allowed me to settle down a lot faster. Also the fact that they listened to my questions and answered truthfully along with knowledge of their past experiences.

How are you feeling now after attending the Day in the Life?

I’m feeling a lot more confident about what I will do now after school. It makes me more aware of the pathways I can achieve.
