There are a number of support functions used by large hospitality businesses with the aim to support and improve the overall efficiency of a business. The four support functions I will be looking at are finance, customer services, marketing and human resources.
Attraction means anything that creates a desire in any person to travel in a specific tourist destination or attraction. Local is another basic component of tourism. The locale may be used to include the holiday destination and what it offers to the tourist. The holiday destination may offer natural attractions. It is considered as the most important basic component of tourism. Fashion is an important factor in the demand for various tourist attractions and amenities. The tourist who visits a particular place for its natural beauty may decide to visit some other attractions due to a change in fashion.

Miss McConnell will contact DOT emergency and find out what it takes to retain one lane open for the hotel’s guests and valet.
When I did not have previous job experience, it was so hard to find a job. Educational experience was not enough to be able to obtain a position in jobs I wanted to apply for. It did not help that I was feeling insecure about myself in my job interviews, just because I failed to get hold of a job after interviewing. August 2014, I was accepted to The Disney College Program where I took a class and worked as guest service cast member. I delivered outstanding guest services day by day in a fast paced diverse environment, associated with multiple departments to ensure a greater quality guest experience, I was prepared to handle multiple tasks, work really well under pressure, and demonstrated adaptability while taking other shifts at various theme park location. When I got back and started looking for a job. I felt more confident because of everything I had learned, I knew what kind of employee I was. Not only my confidence helped me do well in my job interviews but working for Disney a well known corporation helped me stick out from other future employees. At this moment, the only thing that has made me struggle to obtain a job is my
The US Department of Labor estimates that approximately 15.5 million people work in the hospitality industry, one that generates around 500 billion dollars a year. The industry is full of talent but the industry is competitive. With many big names like Marriott, Hilton, IHG and Hyatt (all on the Top 100 Companies to Work For list) vying for the best talent, hospitality companies must offer not only good salaries but other benefits to attract talent. Currently, I work in that industry for Wyndham Worldwide, a fantastic company in the hospitality industry. Wyndham is one of the leading companies in the industry for many attributes such as number of properties, customer services, environmental and social responsibility and employee satisfaction and I am proud to be a part of such a great company. Wyndham truly cares for its employees and offers them fantastic benefits and growth opportunities. However, I want to learn more about another company in the hospitality that has a reputation of being a great place to work.
Front office managers within all three sized hotels supervise daily activities within the establishment and makes sure guests are satisfied with the accommodations they are receiving.

“What do you want to be when you grow up?” That’s easy, I want to be a Disney princess! Of course this was my answer 15 years ago, and like any other 6-year-old girl, being able to sing and dance just like the Little Mermaid would be life changing. Well, considering we had the same name, I was half way there. Even though I’m older and much wiser, my dreams haven’t changed much, but have only become more realistic. Don’t get me wrong. It would still be amazing to become a Disney princess, but my dreams would still be fulfilled, if I worked for the Walt Disney Company. With this said, my ideal position within the hospitality industry would be working in one of the Disney World theme parks as a guest service manager because they are in charge of guests’ satisfaction, create a friendly work environment, and are offered great benefits.
In my opinion, my first week at my coop placement at Deverett Law Offices was a good week. On Monday, I was really nervous because it was my first day and I didn’t know what to expect, but I was also very excited because I knew that this placement would be a great learning experience for me. On my first day, I arrived about 10 minutes early because I wanted to make sure that I wasn't late. However, the doors to the law office was locked and I didn't know what to do. This made me feel extremely anxious and I felt like I was the “new kid on the block”. I thought that all the other employees at the law firm somehow knew how to bypass this uncomfortable situation and unlock the door. I rang the doorbell, but there was no answer. As a result, I
Today I had my interview with Mr. Francisco Arias he was very intelligent and kind. The interview started with personal questions he was trying to get to know me. Since he started asking questions about myself first, this gave me a little bit of confidence I didn’t feel nervous anymore. I started talking about my background since he noticed an accent he knew that I was a bilingual person, this definitely gave me an extra point. Before I went to this interview I read about the hospital and why the job opening was available, this helped me to show my interest on the position and the vision of the hospital, and this was one thing that caught his attention.
For this assignment, I searched around my workplace at Gameworks for a well qualified professional who knows plenty about hospitality. I was told by the general manager that there is a manager who studied hospitality in college. The Operations manager’s name is Samantha Birsen. She has been working at Gameworks ever since it opened. I noticed that she goes to work earlier than anyone else and does a great job at keeping everyone on their feet. I asked for her email and sent a message asking when it would be best to conduct an interview with her. During our interview, I asked her 11 concise and purposeful questions. I was interested in learning more about Samantha and about hospitality as a major and a career.
After the graduated, I was looking for a job when I received my license. I got a referral form a friend who employed at the hiring hospital. Gurak and Lennon said, “the human connection is always the best way to start looking for a job” (2013, p.163). I went to the hospital website for the application, after that I got a call from the supervisor for an interview. This is my first job, and I was nervous, panic waiting for that day. I asked my instructor to proofreading my resume and cover letter before I submitted them for my job. I did several questions to evaluate my skills and knowledge as my application proceeded.
I feel I did not have as many resources or the support I would have liked to have in order to confidently preform in this position. Most of the support I did have (the visitor services team) was part-time. The
1.)I have been working since I was about 17, and as of now I have held multiple different positions, in various institutions. Each of these positions required a different set of skills and attributes, nevertheless they all required the same dedication and focus. I have always been one to show up and complete with my daily tasks, however there is a specific situation that I recall that required me to step up and do more than I was required to.
