Industry placement leads to job

International student Ravneel Anand was delighted when his industry placement at a top Auckland hotel lead to a part-time job.

Ravneel, from Fiji, spent a month working at The Langham as part of his International Diploma in Culinary course at Manukau Institute of Technology (MIT).

The placement gave him a chance to work in every department in The Langham’s kitchens, from pastry to mains to desserts.

After Ravneel completed the internship, The Langham offered him a part-time job as a commis chef.

Ravneel is loving his part-time job, and says his studies at MIT were excellent preparation for his future career.

“The lecturers are so down-to-earth and helpful,” he says.

I have found studying at MIT interesting and challenging and amazing. Everything has been enjoyable.

He is also enjoying living in Auckland. “I like going out with my friends, seeing new places and having a good time.”

Ravneel recently finished his course and has applied for a 12-month post-study work visa to find a job. He hopes to be offered a full-time job at the Langham.
