I really enjoyed my year working at DoubleTree Hilton. I performed all sorts of duties - mainly housekeeping, but also finance, marketing and Human Resource Mangement. I got to work in several hotels across the UK as well as Hilton's headquarters in Watford. There was sufficient variety during my placement year to keep me interested throughout.
I cant describe the amount of fun I had on my placement. Other people may think working away from home for 1 year is a struggle. In some senses it can be as you don't have your familys support. However there were so many people that I met who ensured the placement was a great one. The culture of America as well credited towards the year being successful and my overall enjoyment. The actual job itself gave me a great insight into culture, operations and running of a international hotel brand.. It has been one of the best expereinces and jobs I have had to date.
