Catching up with Rhiannon Cribb: From graduation to employment with Air NZ

Posted on 16/06/2022 by

We catch up with Study From Home graduate Rhiannon Cribb, seen here on holiday at the Santa Monica Pier in the US.

Last year we introduced Rhiannon Cribb, the lovely Study From Home student who completed her qualifications while travelling around New Zealand.

We recently learned Rhiannon had secured a cabin crew role with Air New Zealand, and we couldn’t be more excited for her to land such a perfect job for someone who loves to travel so much.

When we asked how she found the job, she mentioned that while she had checked the ITC Careers page, she was committed to finding a role with Air New Zealand, so refreshed their careers website every night!

This page is a dedicated page just for ITC graduates and current students. It’s their one stop shop to finding a job they want during or after they finish their studies.

Here’s Rhiannon’s story!

Can you tell us the story of how you got the job at Air NZ?

Getting the job at Air New Zealand was tough and nerve wracking! I did my first application, and waited about the month to hear back, and then did two interviews!! The waiting period was the hardest. I spoke a lot about working in a team but being able to think fast and make critical decisions quickly by myself.

ITC takes pride in preparing students for interviews and are always there to support graduates if they need it during application stages.

Which parts of your time at ITC were most helpful in getting the job?

The role plays were perfect for gaining confidence. If you are not confident in what you’re doing, It’ll be hard for you if there is an emergency!!

ITC has an Airport Training Centre so that students do role plays in an Aircraft Cabin or at a Check-In Counter. This makes the experience authentic and prepares them for real life scenarios.

What are you most looking forward to once you get started?

I’m looking forward to seeing places I’ve never seen before and probably wouldn’t think to go!

When students do ITC’s level 4 Certificate, they start to explore destinations around the world an some of the highlights to see as a visitor. This means they can advise customers they speak to appropriately and also look forward to visiting these amazing places as a tourist themselves!

Do you plan to continue your travels whenever you’ve got the time? Where’s on the list?

Yes definitely! My next trip is planned for USA! Then Bali hopefully next year!

Rhiannon is the perfect example of someone who simply loves to travel, and wanted to turn that passion into a career – and now she has! Her Study From Home qualification (that she earned while travelling) helped her to get an amazing position with Air New Zealand.
