The Career

With the internship winding down, most students are doing some hard soul searching. Trying to figure out what to do with their lives now that college is OFFICIALLY over. I knew I wanted to be in the hospitality industry for about two years, exploring the globe is a dream of mine and working within a hotel is the best way to do that. There are so many different departments within a hotel that I am not just limited to being in the Front Office. I was approached several days ago by my supervisor and was asked how I would feel about moving within sales. SALES....are you kidding me!!!!???!?!? They say I am very smooth and can relate to a lot of people that stay at the hotel, so of course my first question was what are my hours? When I found out that I would be working Monday through Friday, I jumped at the opportunity to move upstairs (sales dept.). Maybe this would be my opportunity, my chance to prove to everyone that I can actually make it in this field.

So while my internship is winding down my career is just beginning, the experiences I have had and the relationships I have developed are ones that have groomed me to be who I am today. I will take the challenges as they come and smile on my face as each new day comes because life is too short to worry about complaining guests and upset co-workers. So for now I will be signing off but be sure to stop by the Montelucia Resort and Spa and experience a vacation unlike any other.
