We’ve been saying this for months – Tourism needs you!Posted on 17/02/2022 by Hayley Clark
For months and months, ITC has known that the tourism industry will need recruits to meet demands.
With the tourism boom around the corner, we certainly have seen an increased need for employees. Our Employment Consultants have been working really hard to support past students and it’s paid off for our recent graduates!
We knew that as soon as the border restrictions started to loosen, every tourism employer in the country would be looking to hire new staff and get ready for the inevitable rush of visitors who have been looking forward to getting to New Zealand ever since we closed our borders.
It’s our little ‘I told you so’ moment, and we couldn’t be more excited that it has finally arrived.
Recent graduates spoilt for choice
Recent graduates from the past year or so have been absolutely spoilt for choice when it comes to finding jobs in the industry.
In fact, there have been more jobs coming in than graduates coming out.
Our two Employment Consultants have been exceptionally busy helping ITC and Study From Home graduates find and apply for fantastic roles throughout New Zealand, and we’ve seen endless successes from our graduates.
Here are just a few of the roles that have been filled by graduates from the past year:
- Bridge Guide at AJ Hackett
- Travel Consultant for Air New Zealand in Auckland
- Guide & Customer Service representative for the All Blacks Experience
- Customer Service for Onsen Hot Pools Queenstown
- Boat Host for Southern Discoveries
- Team Lead for Rydges Resort
- Cabin Crew for Air New Zealand (several roles)
- Customer Service for Air New Zealand (several roles)
How our new Whanau Portal can help you & your family decide if ITC is right for you
If you’re unsure about studying at ITC and jump starting a career in travel and tourism (or if your family isn’t sold on the idea!), we’ve created a webpage to help you make an informed decision.
It’s called the ITC Whanau Portal, and it’s filled with information about us and the industry that you’ll need to know to make your decision.
We explain what makes tourism a safe career choice, how you can go about finding employment once you graduate, and how ITC has established ties with tourism businesses that helps secure positions for our graduates in the industry.
You’ll also find information on what makes ITC so special, and how you’ll be able to study but also balance that with life or even a part-time job.
So take a look through the Whanau Portal and get in touch if you have any questions at all about studying with ITC, working in tourism, or getting a job once you graduate.
