Hear what some of our recent interns had to say:
For me, the most exiting part of this internship has been working closely with the General Manager of Marketing and Communications - Rawinia Lange, who taught me valuable lessons on how to communicate strategically on behalf of an award winning hotel group.
While working with the team on various tasks, I further improved how to set priorities and how to finish the work in the most effective way. It's really exciting learning new things every day, especially when there is so much going on within the tourism industry. I highly recommend the Pacific Resort Hotel Group Marketing Internship programme.
Melanie Baylis, Marketing Coordinator Intern, October 2012 - May 2013 (New Zealand)
I worked closely with senior members of the corporate team and on projects of real consequence for the company, which in turn allowed me to develop my existing skill set and pick up new abilities outside my area of expertise.
Overall the experience has been an exceedingly positive one, and I would not hesitate to recommend it to others. The fact that the job is based at a location world renowned for being a tropical island paradise doesn't hurt either!"
Yvonne Brill, Marketing Communications Intern, Jan-April 2013 (New Zealand)
I have mainly conducted an independent project for the establishment of standard procedures for the group and this has been really diverse, from very administrative tasks to the audit of the Beach Hut activities! Working for PRHG has truly been a one-in-a-lifetime experience that I will be sharing when I will head back to the Alps! I believe you will have as much fun during your stay in Rarotonga as I am having here every day…
Himiwa Rakotomavo, Executive Support Intern, June - November 2012 (Switzerland)
Thank you Pacific Resort Hotel Group for your kindness and hospitality.
Esther Williams, Marketing Co-ordinator Intern, May - October 2012 (New Zealand)
From the first day on I felt integrated, people in the resort are very welcoming and helpful. I especially liked working within a young international team. The Cook Islands are a truly unspoiled paradise and the perfect place to relax after a long week. The highlight was definitely a trip to Aitutaki.
Facing the challenges of working and living on a remote tropical island in a foreign cultural environment is a very unique experience and I would recommend this internship to anyone seeking a new adventure as well as professional and personal development.
