I got to do all things related to the business and worked not only as a travel agent, but also as an executive assistant. Along with normal office work, my tasks included: creating and selling travel packages, communicating with clients and other companies, acquiring collaboration contracts with supplier, meeting with collaborators and giving them presentations, recruiting new employees, supervising other trainees, creating and standardising company databases, performing the manager’s varying requests and participating in the strategic management.
As the placement entailed lot of responsibility and new tasks to solve and survive on my own, I could develop strong professional confidence and communication abilities. With the hectic work schedule, I got to improve my time management and prioritising skills. Most importantly I learned the basics of the tourism industry.
