After graduating from the University of Arizona with a BFA in Studio Art and a minor in Business Administration and working at Columbia Sportswear Company as a Quality Control intern, I decided to enroll in Career Israel. In Tel Aviv, I interned at the David InterContinental Hotel in Tel Aviv. A five-star hotel on the beach, the David InterContinental is part of the InterContinental Hotel Group that has over 4,400 hotels worldwide.
I worked in reception where I met and greeted guests, performed check-ins and check-outs, and assisted guests and visitors with their needs and questions. Working in reception was very fast-paced, demanding, and at times stressful, but the pros surpassed the cons and at the end of the day, the job was extremely rewarding. I didn’t sit in front of a computer in a cubicle all day. Instead, I met the most interesting guests from all over the world, and I loved the people I work with.
