Chloe, tell us little about yourself and your college?
My name is Chloe, I am 21 years old and I’m from Switzerland. I am currently completing my 3rd year (out of 4) in the Ecole Hoteliere de Lausanne, regarded as the best in the world in its domain. It opened in 1893 and offers groundbreaking training to prepare students for a global hospitality management careers.
– Reading: particularly thick historical fantasy books
– Speaking different languages: French, German, Spanish, English and I am learning Chinese.
– Cooking for friends and family: food is still the best way to share a warming and bonding moment with them
– Football: I’m a Bayern Munich fan.
Tell us something about your Hospitality Management Internship.
I have done my operational internship in Germany and in Switzerland. Now I’m doing my Administrative Internship at The St. Regis, Abu Dhabi. A beautiful property with 283 rooms with spectacular view of Abu Dhabi Corniche and Sea. As The St. Regis is known for his finest address and yes St. Regis Abu Dhabi is one of the finest address you’ll ever find in Abu Dhabi.
Is there any particular department or section in which you are working?
Yes, I’m Human Resources and Learning & Development, Intern.
Could you please describe your role at The St. Regis, Abu Dhabi?
I act as a coordinator for both departments, carrying out mainly administrative tasks (letter for employees, Emirates IDs, and residence visa procedures, creating different kinds of posters and communication). Finally, l hope l was able to position me as a person of trust, to whom the employees can come when they have problems. I always try my best to help the people around me.
What’s your favorite part of working for your organization?
As most people working in the hospitality industry, I have always loved meeting new peoples from different backgrounds. My position allows me to do so on a daily basis and l am very grateful for that.
I am quite free of my movement and pace of work: no one will restrict me from wandering around the hotel to gain a deeper understanding of the operations nor would they pressure me every 10 minutes to ask whether a certain task is completed. This is a very comfortable environment to work in.
Would you recommend hotel/hospitality management to the future candidates?
If you love responsibilities, do not count your working hours, love to travel, meet new people, enjoy discovering new cultures, speak several languages and in general, you have an open mind then l strongly believe that you are meant to work in the hospitality industry.
What piece of advice would you like to give the students and recent graduates of hospitality?
Don’t be afraid to ask for what you want. I believe this is valid in your daily life too. However, l feel like hospitality is an environment particularly favorable to daring, competent and confident people with ambition. So if you feel you can do it, go ahead!
Thank you very much, Chloe, for sharing your experience. We would like to wish you every success in your future and your dedication will take you one day in the pinnacle of your career.
