Students are being graduated in numerous field of disciplines but it is a doubt are they getting the opportunity to acquire the practical exposure of their studies. In fact the studies will be clueless if they are not offered the chance to apply the same in their working environment. Also the business organizations who volunteer to offer the practical training are very few. Hence Olanka Travels bridges knowledge gaps and provide the practical training of the field of Travel and tourism. I am Heshani who has a strong interest in Travel and Tourism. My field of study was Hospitality and Tourism which I had completed nearly six months before. Sooner I completed my Degree had got a chance to join in Olankaas an Intern. Olanka provided me with the necessary training during the period of six months which was greatly helped me to experience the practical exposure of the Travel and Tour Industry. I am feeling fulfilled with the necessary qualifications along with the experience now I am pretty much proud to be aprofessional of such a progressive firm which emphasizes the success of the company is the success of the employees.
A chance of finding a job or finding the right job is a dream for each and every person in this competitive work environment. Although a job is offered, the people who exploit the right opportunities or reach the top are very rare. I am ashan and almost one year back this was my stand and got to know about Olanaka through one of my contacts. I was joined as an Intern attached to inbound sales team where as everything was strange for me since I didn’t have any experience. As time gives the answer for everything, I had got the chance to learn each and every aspect of my job and was able to acquire the relevant hands on experience of the work each and every day. The enthusiasm towards the job coupled with my abilities made me stronger and a best fit for the job gradually. This was resulted an exceptional level of performance outcomes and which was commended by my superiors. Twelve months left I had been promoted as the Assistant manager – Training and Quality, which is the first milestone of my journey of career. I would say Olanka set me a career path and gave me the opportunity to experience the exposures of Inbound Tourism Industry.A great place to work.
