SFH graduate lands dream job with Air New Zealand

Posted on 06/09/2017 by

Study From Home graduate Kristina McGaffin loves her job as Lounge Host in the Air New Zealand Koru Club Lounge at Wellington Airport.

When Kristina McGaffin began the New Zealand Certificate in Tourism Level 3 with ITC Study From Home, she wasn’t sure what her future held.

“I did not think I would ever be where I am today, but here I am!” says Kristina, who is now working her dream job with Air New Zealand.

Kristina is a Lounge Host in the Koru Club Lounge at Wellington Airport. Her job is to greet customers and ensure they have a positive experience.

She credits ITC Study From Home with helping her land this position. She says she was inspired to study with ITC after reading about student success stories.

“The success stories were very positive and the support sounded great,” says Kristina.

She was also drawn to Study From Home so she could continue working full-time while she gained her qualification.

“I wanted to be able to study in my own time while working a full-time job. I appreciated the flexibility to study wherever and whenever I needed.”

Originally from Hawke’s Bay, Kristina is enjoying living and working in Wellington, and hopes to do some international travel in the near future. Current destinations on her wish list include Vietnam, Thailand, and Hawaii – or, as Kristina says, “anywhere there is a beach!”

She has a few words of wisdom for students considering studying from home.

“Do it. You won’t regret it! And don’t give up on what you want. Anything is possible.”
