I’m an adaptable and hard-working under-grad seeking an entry-level position in the hotel industry. During my studies I successfully applied my theoretical knowledge to practical work presenting myself as self-motivated and responsible, and a team player. I have an open mind with a hands-on approach to time management and a drive to see tasks through to completion.
