Laura’s choices

The hospitality industry as a line of work, Vatel as a school, Paris as a destination and Human Resources as a job: Laura Benedetti, a 2015 graduate, has built a robust and coherent resume over the years...


Laura’s choices

Even when she was just a teen, Laura wondered about her educational choices: “What do I like? With whom, where and how do I want to work? What fields have lots of job vacancies?”

The many different kinds of work, human relationships and an international outreach will be the three arguments clinching the deal to decide to work in the hospitality industry.

“As I was born in Nimes, I quite naturally looked into Vatel, as I knew about its great reputation.

The learning cycle, with one week in theoretical courses and the next one in practical application at the Vatel Hotel, really attracted me.

I did two very complementary internships:

The structure, management, client base, employees... Both were completely different! That allowed me to gain more experience and it was a fantastic learning experience.

 

Destination Paris for grad school and a job

It seemed obvious to me that I had to continue with the MBA Vatel after my Bachelor Vatel to be able to work in the type of managerial jobs I was looking for. As I wanted to do my internship in Paris, I decided to go there directly.

During the two years I spent at Vatel Paris, I learned so much and honed my career choices: my professors, who were all professionals still in the workplace, also gave me the advantage of their real life experiences.

Little by little I became aware of all the possibilities in the Parisian hospitality market, up until knowing exactly in what hotel category and department I wanted to do my final internship in.

So I finished my Vatel curriculum with an eight-month internship in the Human Resources department of the Parisian palace, Le Bristol.

This department won me over and I started sending out my resume to the HR departments of other luxury hotels in the capital and I was hired as the Human Resources Coordinator in the Plaza Athenee!
