Paradise Interns provides a platform for you to be able to really live that island dream. Live on paradise and dive pretty much everyday! But it's not all just fun and games - this experience also gave me plenty of professional and personal development opportunities too.
During the intense first months boot camp you get a lot of information thrown at you, which can feel a little overwhelming. But with the support of the Paradise Interns team and all the other wonderful interns that you'll share this experience with, you'll get through it!
I then got placed on the wonderful Gili Air. Anna really does a great job at placing you in places and companies that fit you. While at the start it wasn't easy, I soon found my way with the work, the company and the social life at Gili Air. I totally loved my time there.
Finding a work life balance is something that is drilled into you from boot camp - and for a good reason. There is so much going on between the work, diving and socialising and you wouldn't want to miss out on one for any of the others! But if anything goes a bit askew
you'll have weekly check-ins with the Paradise Interns team were you can raise any issues you're having - be they work related or anything else, and they'll do their best to help you out.
But of course, you get what you put into this experience.
