Meet the graduate who landed a job in Noumea after studying with ITC

Posted on 29/06/2022 by

An ITC graduate recently started working at Le Meridien Resort and Spa in beautiful Noumea.

Océane Beaudarel is one of ITC’s recent graduates, but she originally comes from France.

Océane came to ITC to learn about the tourism industry and improve her English – two goals that she excelled at once she arrived!

And now, Océane has just started a fantastic new job as a Reservations Agent at Le Meridien Resort and Spa in Noumea. The hotel is part of the prestigious Marriott Group, and is located on a spectacular beachfront lagoon location. It’s an incredible role, and one perfectly suited for someone bi-lingual like Océane.

We caught up with her to see how she’s going, and how ITC helped with her getting the job.

Posted on 25/05/2022 by

Graduate Shania has had a whirlwind few years, all with a fantastic happy ending!

ITC graduate Shania Wheatley has had an incredible journey.

We first interviewed her in 2017 when she landed a job on a cruise ship and lined another up to work at Disney. But so much changed just a couple of years later that we interviewed her again, and found her back in NZ working in an isolation facility.

Now in the wake of Covid, Shania has made another big move – and a big lifestyle change! Her journey is truly a whirlwind, but it has a happy ending.

Here it is in her own words.

Posted on 20/07/2021 by

Eitaro Goshima is a recent ITC graduate who began his studies at our Christchurch campus before moving to Auckland and continuing with level 5.

Eitaro settled into the team relatively effortlessly and now runs his own shift. I am impressed with his can-do attitude, his willingness to learn, and I look forward to seeing Eitaro progress in his career,” he said.
