"I came to Melbourne, Australia from Malaysia as an international student to study Hospitality at RGIT Australia. With 15 years of hospitality industry experience under my belt, I wanted to come to Melbourne and study to help kick-start my career.
I studied Certificate III in Hospitality Management to Advanced Diploma in Hospitality Management from July 2016 to September 2018. It was an amazing experience, and a great feeling to graduate. Currently, I am studying Advanced Diploma of Business, and am just as passtionate about reaching my goals as ever.
While studying, my Trainer & Assessor was Malcolm. He was my inspiration. Malcolm provided me with tips on how to build my career after graduating RGIT. I am very grateful to him and his ongoing support.
Studying at RGIT was very enjoyable, as I made many friends from diverse backgrounds while learning. It was while I was studying, that I was offered an internship at RGIT Melbourne. Without a second thought, commenced an internship in the Hospitality Department as an Inventory Assistant. I had the opportunity to manage the kitchen and order products. I very much enjoyed the responsibilities as they related to my coursework, training and experience. In addition, I developed work flow systems and standards, and learned to be organised with time management.
It was after my internship that my supervisors encouraged me to become a Hospitality Trainer & Assessor. Through their encouragement and support, I successfully completed TAE40116 Certificate IV in Training and Assessment, thus allowing me to train achieve my dream of training students.
Now, I look forward to an incredible experience as a Trainer & Assessor at RGIT Australia's Hobart campus in beautiful Tasmania. RGIT is a great working enviornment. I really have found my dream job. I am very happy that RGIT has created this golden opportunity for me. For me, it's about the satisfaction gained after all the effort and hard work. I will be always grateful."
