During my IHG Academy placement, I worked in the InterContinental Miami and was able to experience what it was to be a marketer within the hospitality industry. Before entering the IHG Academy, I had never thought about working in the hospitality industry, but this experience changed my viewpoint. I interned in the Marketing Department at the InterContinental Miami and took experienced and learnt a lot: I was able to witness a photo shoot being done, join meetings with the different departments such as Food and Beverage and Human Resources. I also had the opportunity to ask colleagues about their personal experiences of what it is like to be a marketer in the hospitality industry. I also had the opportunity to intern for a couple of days in other departments, such as in Event Planning and Human Resources.
What I enjoyed the most about my IHG Academy work experience was the people I was surrounded by every day. The atmosphere that the InterContinental Miami has such an active and vibrant energy. Every time I would enter the doors of the InterContinental, my spirit would be uplifted. This type of corporation has made me realize that I want to work for a company that has these values.
After my IHG Academy work experience, I was offered a job at the InterContinental Miami as a Uniformed Services Liaison, working at the bell desk. When I was offered this opportunity, I knew I wanted to be part of a family like IHG. I can definitely say that the IHG Academy has helped me with my future career plans – it has shown me opportunities which I never realized existed and given me the chance develop skills I never knew I had!
