Karine Wingel, who manages two four and five-star hotels, is completely satisfied with the Vatel interns she has hosted for many summer and winter seasons.

Ms. Wingel, in your opinion, how do you define a successful internship?

Both the student and the team he or she works with play a part in a successful internship. Determined student interns will end up knowing all the ins and outs concerning work at the front desk and in the restaurants as well as having a good professional idea of interactions taking place between all hotel departments. Here at the Courchevel Bellecote Hotel****, as well as at the Domaine de l’Astragale***** Hotel in Saint Tropez, they take part in all situations that may arise and do professional work, and not just repetitive tasks.

My team and I are always there for them. The door to my office is always open and I answer any questions they may have. Our interns have a real job at the front desk and in the restaurant, and that’s what makes an internship a successful one. I also once was an intern and because I was curious and wanted to do a good job, I was able to progress quickly. I was also helped by the trust that my manager and team, at that time, had in me.

 

Could you tell us a bit about the impressions you have from your last Vatel interns?

The interns we had during the last winter seasons were exceptional, hard-working, and always wanted to learn more, which is also great for us. Richard and Guillaume, who worked in our Bellecote Hotel last winter, were remarkable. Richard even trained the receptionist we had hired last winter. Before that, we hosted Romain and Enzo, and the year before, Marion and Caroline. All of them were very professional.

We work with Vatel as well as other schools, and every year our Vatel interns are excellent.

 

What would you like to tell all Vatel students?

I’d like to give them the following message:

 

Open-mindedness + curiosity + availability + dynamic performance + a good mood

=

One day you’ll have my job!
