gnored until it’s time for the tea round, think again. In the tourism industry, you’re more likely to be – and being paid at some level. As well as valuable experience, it could lead to a job offer





Abta Lee McGavin, 26, Bristol


London South Bank University, where I’m studying tourism, submitted one of my essays for Abta’s internship scheme. It was shortlisted and after an interview day I was chosen for the one-month internship. I did so much and learnt loads. I helped run social media campaigns, worked with the PR team, with conferences and events, and on research projects within the destinations and sustainability team. Everyone was so open and helpful, and wanted to hear my opinion. Before the internship I had thought I would like to work in marketing, but my experiences made me fall in love with sustainability and accessibility. It really shifted my focus.





Royal Caribbean Hannah Jarrett, 20, Bridgend


I saw the internship advertised at Chester University, where I study marketing and event management. I had an interview and was selected for a five-week programme in direct marketing and customer relations management. I looked at how to improve the loyalty scheme and reach out to new-to-cruise passengers. I developed valuable skills and built my confidence. I sailed on Independence of the Seas, and took passengers who had not cruised before on ships visits. I’m now spending my study abroad year in Orlando at Walt Disney World, and I’ve been offered a graduate position with Royal Caribbean at the end of my studies.





BCD Travel Lola Busseuil, 19, Lyon


I’m studying travel at vocational school in France and organise travel through BCD’s corporate travel management for a company as part of my apprenticeship. My school gives students the chance to work for a month in a foreign country, and in summer 2017 I came to London to work at BCD’s offices. I spent time in different departments, from sales and bookings to human resources, and it was interesting to see how the company worked and to interact with them as an agent, not a customer. I haven’t yet chosen whether I’d like to work as a business or leisure travel agent and my internship will be really helpful in this decision.
