Crown Institute and Function Staff Brings Paid ‘Internships’ to Students

Written by on December 21st, 2018.      0 comments

For events like Christmas and beyond, staffing is a problem most businesses providing events support services encounter. A common problem would be the company finding itself undermanned or missing a few personnel for areas like the bar, the kitchen, or at the cashier counter.

Crown Institute has courses in Auckland that allows students to gain valuable experience while working at various events. Crown grants students guaranteed work while they study in a hotel course. The experience gained is just as important as the lessons learned, where the students gain valuable insider information they can use for a future in the hospitality industry or other similar work.

Build Your Employability: Gain Work Experience While You Study at Crown

Written by Amy Tregidga on February 27th, 2014.      0 comments

At Crown we understand the importance of our students gaining valuable work experience. Real skills and experience give you employability and are essential for even an entry-level role in the hospitality industry!
Graduates from Crown who have had some work experience are more successful in finding jobs in their chosen industry, as they have been exposed to the working world while studying.
Three of Crown's Travel, Tourism & Airline Studies Certificate students had the great opportunity to help the lovely people at Discover America at their event at SkyCity last week. Their main role at the event was to meet and greet travel agents and direct them to their seats. Eunice Heywood Almario, Venus Hertz Alviola and Reece Main only started their course at Crown on 3 February 2014 and have been able to network with industry people already!
The recent NRL Auckland Nines competition was another opportunity for Crown students to gain valuable paid work experience with Function Staff. Students worked in various roles at Eden Park from Corporate Box Hosts to Duty Managers.  In fact seven of Crown’s current students and recent graduates were Duty Managers at the event!
This weekend, approximately ten students will be working at Mt Smart Stadium for the Bruce Springsteen concert!
If you would like more information about studying at Crown, call us today on 0800 357 316, email info@crown.ac.nz or click HERE to complete an enrolment form.
