“Life begins at the end of your comfort zone” is what an author named Neale Donald Walsch once said.
It’s Amiel and I’m back once again! The quote above describes one of the core reasons why I began my practicum at INTERNeX. Sticking with what you know is safe and comfortable just as the name suggests. But it also leaves you with an extremely narrow path to travel in the journey of life. Try out new things, go to a different country and live there for a few months! Who knows? You might find out something profound about yourself.
Today we’re continuing with INTERNeX’ programs and will take a look at the Hospitality Program.
The process of this package is bit different from the Practicum Program I wrote about last week.
Just like with a practicum, it all begins with a conversation about what your personal goals are. Do you want to know how it is to live and work in another country? Improve your language skills? Learn about the service industry in other parts of the world? Or just meet people from different nationalities? The Hospitality Program should then peak your interest!By the way, this time you actually do get paid. You could say it’s similar to doing work & travel, but not quite. And here’s why: INTERNeX takes care of everything for you! All you have to do is show up at your chosen destination and dazzle everyone at the job interview the staff helped prepare. This still sounds like a lot of pressure right? But you needn’t be so worried. INTERNeX supports you at every single step you take in order to make you fully prepared, like with giving advice on useful interview techniques for example. Even in the off-chance that you won’t be taken in by the company on your first try, there will be more opportunities lined up for you.
The biggest difference between common work & travel programs and the Hospitality Program is the safety INTERNeX provides. With them you will be able to completely focus on what you want to achieve and enjoy the life of a world traveler! Also, after you start working the staff will stay in contact with you to make sure that you’re satisfied with your experience.
Hospitality offers a great opportunity to travel and gain important life skills you won’t be able to learn so easily elsewhere.
