Urvashi Ramchandra Shinde

Course:Business Level 7 – Graduate

Duration:February 2013 – Dec 2013

Present Role: Reservations Consultant Quest Service Apartments- Corporate Office(Takapuna)



Hi to everyone! My name is Urvashi Ramchandra Shinde and I am pleased and excited to announce that I have successfully completed my New Zealand Diploma in Business (Level 7) last year.

I began my course in February 2013, during the course I got to experience a whole new education pattern along with a unique experience in learning about New Zealand culture. I am very thankful to the entire teacher’s and iCareer employment advisors who have supported and encouraged me throughout my journey whilst at Cornell.

Whilst I was studying I started working at Sky city as a waitress and then was offered an opportunity to work as a premier rewards host which was related to my studies. This September 2014, I received another opening opportunity I could not refuse and one where I was selected for the role of Contact Centre Consultant with Quest Service Apartments at their corporate office in Takapuna. Quest is a very large organisation with 33 properties across New Zealand and one property in Fiji.

I am striving to achieve residency in New Zealand and working on my work visa at the moment and all is looking good for me in that direction. I would recommend Cornell to any perspective student looking to study her in New Zealand, as the staff are always supportive and at hand. This country is a great place for any student to start a new career path.
