Responsibilities and managerial internship

Mathilde Taieb, a 5th year student in the Special Events Specialization, tells us about her internship in the communication department in the Sofitel Hotel in Marrakesh.


Responsibilities and managerial internship

Attracted by travelling though she wished to remain near her family, Mathilde Taieb started school at Vatel Tel Aviv in 2012.

After several months of theoretical courses / professional experience courses at the InterContinental David Tel Aviv Hotel, Vatel proposed two internships to Mathilde:

The first one in Israel at the Sheraton Tel Aviv and for her second year at the InterContinental Moorea Resort & Spa in French Polynesia.

Then Mathilde decided to continue her graduate studies at Vatel Nimes. This time it was up to her to  find an  internship for her MBA in  International Hotel Management. A highly strategic internship, one that would last for six months.

“During a trip to Morocco in 2015, I had lunch in a restaurant whose Director was a Vatel Marrakesh alumnus. We stayed in touch with one another and when I was looking for my internship, I contacted him, mentioning that I had chosen the Special Events Specialization for my 5th year. He put me in touch with the Sofitel Marrakesh Communication and Special Events Manager.  I had found my internship,” said the student.

When she arrived in Morocco in December 2016, she was immediately put in charge of promoting the hotel’s three venues: the Palate Darkum tea room, the Ultima Pool Lounge private pool, and the So Spa.

 

1 managerial internship, 3 fields of action

 

Communication:  

  • Monthly monitoring of domestic and international press
  • Writing and diffusing press releases 
  • Creating internal and external communication supports
  • Organizing photo shots
  • Project management
  • Promoting the brand’s visual identity

 

Events:

 

E-Marketing:

Sofitel Maroc “This internship was nothing like the others! I handle my files from A to Z, kindly supervised by my manager. I’m both autonomous and a part of all group actions. 

I think I’ve already found my dissertation subject, which will be on promoting the Sofitel Marrakesh identity through sponsored external events.  

I really like being here and I meet lots of Vateliens who work at the hotel as well as Vatel Marrakesh students who do their practical experience weeks at the hotel,” concluded Mathilde.
