Yes, I’m very happy – and honoured. I didn’t expect these results but I’m delighted with them. They’ll undoubtedly open many doors for me. I hope so anyway.
I would say, first and foremost, the quality of the teaching. Our lecturers were competent and attentive.
The periods of work experience brought me greater professional maturity and, of course, I’m passionate about work in the hotel and restaurant sectors.
The three years of study increased my theoretical and practical knowledge.
Yes, I had two placements, one in the Foreign Office in the UK where I considerably improved my knowledge of English.
My second placement was in Brussels, with an independent group of four hotels. I worked in the Bookings & Yield Management Department.
I see this second experience as being the more significant. I was given a lot of responsibility after only a very short time. There were numerous difficulties but nothing that I couldn’t handle.
This second placement made me realise what types of recruits the job market needs. We may be graduates but we should retain our sense of humility. We still have everything to learn.
After our exams, I immediately left Bordeaux and went back to my home, the Rhône-Alpes region.At present, I’m working in a private clinic in Switzerland, filling a replacement vacancy. I’m meeting a lot of people and my aim at the moment is to create a solid network of contacts in whom I can have confidence.
I would define it in one word - sharing.
This was highlighted by the teaching staff. Their courses were first class. They’re true professionals and they had no hesitation in sharing their own networks of contacts and their knowledge of the various markets with us. They also gave us personalised advice.
I am delighted to have chosen the Ecole Vatel Bordeaux three years ago and I’m now proud to be able to draw on its many advantages in the world of work.
