Great Stories Begin Here

Clarice.jpgWe caught up with Clarice who is currently out on her paid Industry Placement at Scenic Te Pania in Napier.

Here is what Clarice says about her placement:

“For me, Scenic Te Pania is a great place to learn and gain experience as everyone here is so supportive and friendly which makes me feel very welcome.

The hotel is quite busy especially in the weekends. The weather is beautiful, so hot and sunny so people love to come here for a weekend trip.

I usually spend my days off visiting local attractions like the Art Deco street with stunning buildings, beautiful beaches and the aquarium nearby. There are a lot of my friends working here who are also from PIHMS which makes my experience enjoyable and have fun as well!”

Scenic Te Pania is being so supportive and are covering all costs for Clarice and the other PIHMS students to fly to Franz Joseph where they will continue their placements at the beautiful Scenic Te Waonui.

The PIHMS paid Industry Placement isn’t just about the experience you get, it’s about the connections you make. The connections these student have with Scenic Hotel group are invaluable in a situation like the recent flooding and also for future career opportunities.
