Graduate success stories


“Thank you for the opportunity to participate in this program. It has been a fantastic experience and I have gained knowledge and better understanding of the tourism industry specific to my field of work from an expert who has a breadth of experience and advice.” Jose Gato, Fantasea Cruising Magnetic

“The opportunity to network and be in contact with leaders in the tourism industry is fantastic. The program provides a great foot in the door for young professionals into the tourism world. It also helped to confirm that I’m on the right path for my career development.” Laura McGrath, Southern Queensland Country Tourism

“The QTIC Young Professionals Mentoring Program was a fantastic and beneficial experience, as it assisted me in securing my ‘goal role’. Most valuable was establishing a great relationship with a senior industry professional – Jan Sommer – who I still contact regularly to ask questions and receive advice. The program helped me to clearly refine my career goals and feedback from my mentor helped to map out how to achieve my goals. I also have fine-tuned my CV and improved my interview and networking skills. I definitely recommend the QTIC program to young professionals, it is a fantastic program to add to your resume that provides competitive advantage and sets you apart from the crowd. I love working in tourism because it’s fun, especially in my current role promoting a place I love to live in, supporting local businesses and fostering community spirit. We are contributing towards everyone’s favourite time of year where memorable moments are made … holidays! What’s not to love about that?” Rhiannon Priestly, Toowoomba Regional Council


2016 QTIC Young Professionals Mentoring Program launch


The 2016 QTIC Young Professionals Mentoring Program was launched in March, bringing together mentors and mentees from nine tourism regions in Queensland (refer to full list below).

Now in its 5th successful year, QTIC has welcomed the largest ever group of participants to the 2016 Program due to high demand and a significant increase in applications from across the state.

During the program, our industry’s young professionals are matched with a senior industry representative for one-on-one mentoring and professional development.

The Program allows a competitive edge for employees in the industry who are 35 years or younger to gain professional development, knowledge and skills through the sharing of information and experience matched with a senior industry professional.

This year, we are excited to have mentees participating in the program from Cairns, Longreach, Rockhampton, Fraser Coast, Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast, Hervey Bay, Toowoomba and Brisbane.

QTIC extends sincere appreciation to the mentors for volunteering their time to develop the next generation of Queensland’s tourism industry leaders.
