In the beginning I worked most of the time in the office, and so together with him. He evaluated me 3 times during the season in Antalya.

Summary

I'm graduated in Tourism and studying now Event- and Project Management. I did two internships, one abroad for 5 months and 1 in a travel agency for 1 month. These internships and the holiday jobs in the horeca, I know what it is to work with flexible hours.

I'm motivated and eager to learn. I like to face every new challange.

My passion goes to other cultures and countries. My dream is to work in the tourism or event sector abroad. 

I'm social, enthousiastic and have sense of responsibility. I like to talk to people and have social contact. Even with foreigners I like to improve my language skills.

Objective

In the future I see me working in the Tourism or Event sector. And it will be definitly abroad. 

First I want to learn as many as possible and I want to expore the world. Because if I would like to work in a travel agency I have to know what I'm talking about. 

An other option is to work in the Event sector . I have a big ambition to be project- or eventmanager.
