"My training at Swiss Hotel Management School really helps me in my job. I learnt a true understanding of the service industry and people skills"
"Whilst writing my BA thesis, I undertook an internship at the SEG GCC centre and during this time I was approached by the Human Resource company "USA Placement". Their core service and the job that I was offered is placing students from Hotel schools for internships and management training in four and five star properties in the US. Perfect for me as a recent graduate! This job took me to Los Angeles for almost 2 years and it was an excellent experience as I got to advocate for students and to show hotels the advantages their placement could offer.
I was offered a position at the International Volleyball Federation (FIVB) in the Beach Volleyball Events Department in 2009.
The biggest challenge in my role is to multitask at all times and manage multiple projects with short deadlines while satisfying all stakeholders involved.
Sporting event management requires attention to detail and in a lot of cases having a back up plan. It is extremely exciting and keeps you on the edge throughout the preparation (which may be months long process) through to the awarding ceremony of the winning athletes. The selfsatisfaction upon a successful event, however, gives you an incredible sense of accomplishment.
I think that my training at Swiss Hotel Management School really helps me in my job. I learned a true understanding of the service industry and mostly in terms of people skills. Once you master people skills, anything in addition you can learn."
