First up she's off to travel retailer Harvey World Travel to meet mentor Donna Kermode. Donna explains that to be a successful travel consultant Holly will first need to prove she has good geographical knowledge. Flying through her test, Holly is then ready to see how good she is at helping a customer. Travel consultancy is a strongly people orientated occupation so building relationships and sharing information about destinations is crucial. Holly's customer is interested in a family holiday to the Gold Coast, a region Holly knows something about so immediately she is able to establish a great rapport. With the details of what the customer would like recorded, it is time to send that information through to the wholesale division of the company so a quote can be prepared. The wholesale aspect of the business accesses prices from the likes of airlines and hotels, is able to buy in bulk, and provides that to the retailer who then on-sells to the customer. Before visiting the wholesale division, Holly joins Donna on a 'familiarisation.' This is one of the perks of the job where a travel consultant gets to visit a hotel, resort, or even cruise liner to experience it themselves so they have first-hand knowledge to pass on to customers.

Farisha is a third year nursing student and wants to learn more about a career in nursing with the Corrections Department. At the Springhill men's prison she meets Kirstin, a nurse working within the prison who explains what the role involves. Essentially she tells Farisha it is the same as nursing in the community as the full range of heath care services are provided. However those arriving at the prison often haven't taken good care of their health so can often be unwell when they arrive. "You need to be tolerant, patient, kind, and leave your prejudice at the door," says Kirstin. Next up they visit the women's prison in Wiri and meet a patient who believes she may be pregnant. Tests are carried out and the pregnancy is confirmed. Kirstin reassures the woman she will be well cared for during her pregnancy and that there is a mother/baby unit at the prison so she won't be separated from her newborn. Farisha is impressed with what she has seen in both environments and with her strong desire to help others, she believes working as a nurse within the Corrections Department will be a good career role for her in the future.

A Career as a RNZAF Pilot (Training) (JTJS62012)
Matthew from Auckland's Massey High School is in Ohakea at the RNZAF pilot training school where he's in for the ride of his life and will find out if he's got 'the right stuff.' Ohakea is where all RNZAF pilots earn their wings but before they even get to touch the controls of an aircraft, each pilot hopeful has already successfully completed a 22-week Initial Officer Training Course at RNZAF Base Woodbourne. At Ohakea they will spend five weeks in the 'classroom' and need to pass regular tests with a minimum of 80% before they get fitted with their very own flying helmet, safety vest and parachute and take to the sky. Matthew skips the usual prerequisites and is taken to be fitted with is helmet and other equipment, including sick bags, before being taken on his 'famil' or familiarisation flight. Commanding Officer of Pilot Training Squadron, Squadron Leader Anthony Budd, gives Matthew a thrilling flight in the CT4E training aircraft with plenty of aerobatics thrown in for good measure. As Anthony says, the aim of the flight is "to whet your appetite and generally see how much aerobatics you can take without throwing up!" Mission accomplished and if Matthew were undertaking his training for real, once conquering the CT4E trainer, he'd be on to the King Air twin engine aircraft for further training to make up his 200+ hours required to achieve his wings. Once a training pilot has successfully completed these hours during the course of around 18 months and has his or her wings, they will then be posted to a squadron where they will continue their learning on larger aircraft such as the P3 Orion, Hercules, Boeing 757 or Iroquois helicopter. A virtual trainer (simulator) is used to assist with training and is also a vital tool for learning how to deal with emergency situations. There are some 177 pilots in the RNZAF and of those, around 75 are actively flying. As a career choice, the RNZAF offers outstanding opportunities to not only be paid as you learn, but to experience a wide range of social benefits not to mention opportunities for overseas travel and working alongside like-minded, motivated people. For Matthew, a taste of what could be during his discovery of life as a pilot trainee has definitely been an incredible experience and has now got him thinking it could be just the job for him!
