Graduate success stories
The New Zealand Certificate in Tourism with a Strand in Tourism and Travel can really take you places. Here’s how some of our talented graduates are using their qualification out in the industry.
Taryn Brown – Flight Attendant, Air New Zealand
“The highs for me in this position are meeting amazing passengers, being part of their holiday experience, and showing them what New Zealand culture is all about. Also, being able to travel and represent your country and wear the uniform with pride.”
Samantha Mooney – Auckland Sales Rep, Stray Travel
“I look after the travel agents in Auckland who sell Stray products – I’m their main point of contact for everything Stray related. I monitor their sales progression, work towards sales targets, and I’m responsible for training new travel agents on Stray product knowledge. I also work in the Stray retail/customer service shop one day a week, as well as do travel talk presentations to people in NZ on working holiday visas. I’m always out in Auckland CBD visiting my agents, and I get to travel around NZ with Stray trying out many different activities, such as sky diving.”
Evelina Vincent – Security Officer, Aviation Security Service
“I screen passengers, airport workers, and flight crew, and their carry-on baggage, to make sure there are no prohibited items or dangerous goods. I get to meet passengers every day and I’ve made friends with my colleagues. Every day is different.”
Samuel Pascoe – Concierge, Fullers
“I check passenger tickets before they hop on the bus, and I give commentary on the various stops on our tour. I love giving commentary and getting laughs, oohs, ahhs, and wows out of customers. I enjoy the challenge of dealing with different kinds of people from different countries and cultures.”
