How to get a good reference from your Study From Home tutorPosted on 05/07/2017 by Jess O'Connor
When you start to apply for tourism jobs, a glowing reference from your Study From Home tutor will go a long way.
It’s worth keeping this in mind as you complete your studies – you want to do everything you can to get a good reference at the end of your course.
Here are some tips:
Treat your studies like a first job
A good way to make a positive impression on your tutors is to treat your studies like a first job. Be professional, punctual, and polite. Take your studies seriously, but also show plenty of enthusiasm and curiosity. Be excited to learn, ask questions, and let your passion for travel and tourism shine through.
Form a positive relationship with your tutor
When you study from home, you can be relatively independent and do a lot of your work online. That said, take the time to call your tutor every now and then – they are there to help you succeed. Talking on the phone regularly will also help your tutor get to know you better, allowing them to provide a more detailed reference when the time comes.
Hand in your assignments on time
When providing a reference, a tutor will be honest with the potential employer about your commitment to your studies. If you handed in assignments late or missed important deadlines, they may feel obliged to reveal this information to the interviewer. If you’re falling behind on your studies, talk to your tutor as soon as you can – they may be able to help you find a solution.
Ask your tutor if they’d be willing to provide a reference
The Study From Home tutors love providing references for their students and helping them get their first job – but it’s still important to ask if you can include their contact details on your CV. That way, they will know to expect a phone call and won’t be caught off-guard if it comes out of the blue.
Ask your tutor for interview tips and tricks
Your tutor wants to see you do well. They want nothing more than for you to ace your job interview and start working in the industry. Take advantage of their expertise and ask for feedback and advice. This shows that you’re motivated and focused, and will inspire them to give you a great reference when the time comes.
