I chose my internship in Colorado because I wanted to start working in a resort that caters to and employs people with a similar lifestyle to my own – adventurous, international, elegant, and lively. I originally signed my contract with Park Hyatt Beaver Creek as the restaurant’s hostess and it wasn’t until the managers got to know me that they gave me the expeditor position in the evenings.
It was great to work in a team in which everyone trusted each other and even in different positions, everyone was treated equally. I was given the opportunity to work in a position of someone who has been working in the hotel for a while and has a lot of knowledge about F&B/kitchen, even though I was a first year intern and this was my first job.
The experience showed me that if you are passionate and dedicated to what you do, along with a supportive team, you can exceed other’s expectations and even your own.
