Trends & Culture - Internship in Abu Dhabi | 23 juni 2017

Joy Kerstens is a 2nd year student of #HMSM. Joy did her operational internship at St. Regis in Abu Dhabi. Read hear story below.

I had an amazing time in the UAE. My internship at the sales department of The St. Regis Abu Dhabi was even better than I expected. I worked together with people from all over the world and learned a lot about different cultures. I worked together with three former students from the Hotel Management School Maastricht. As a Sales coordinator, I was responsible for  paper work, assisted the Sales team and the Director of Sales. I got the opportunity to learn more about the different segments within the sales team and their strategies and tools. I visited different companies together with the team and went to events such as the Arabian Travel Market in Dubai. I also received the opportunity to do different projects for the sales team. The hotel is located at the Corniche (the boulevard of Abu Dhabi). The housing that they arrange for you is in a huge compound with 150 villa’s where you live together with the employees of The St. Regis Saadiyat and The Westin. I shared my villa with 10 girls of many different cultures. I really liked this since you learn a lot from each other. The park has a supermarket which is open 24/7, a gym, a pool and a tennis court. Many employees hang out together. There are busses that bring you to the hotel, some other places and back to “Star Village”.
