This January, many juniors and seniors pursued internships in Nashville, New York, DC, Texas, Florida, and California. Others travelled the globe with their classmates to India, Uganda, Northern Ireland, and Australia. However, junior Charlotte Taylor travelled all the way to Lisbon, Portugal, by herself. She stayed with a close family-friend and was able to intern with Tivoli Hotels. Not only did Charlotte learn about hotel marketing, but also Portugal’s fascinating culture. The following is a summary of her unique Winterim experience.

 

Q: Could you explain your internship?

A: I interned in the marketing department with Tivoli Hotels in Lisbon, Portugal. For a lot of the time, my colleagues would teach me the basis of their work, which ranged from organizing PR trips to creating social media posts to promote the hotels.                           

 

Q: What was the most challenging thing you did?

A: I am not sure. [Laughs]  Sorry I don’t have a good answer for this question.

 

Q: What is something you think you’ll remember for a long time?

A: I’ll most definitely remember the people I worked with; their kindness and inclusion made me feel like a real part of their marketing team. I’ll remember slipping on the Portuguese sidewalks when walking to work, and I’ll remember every interesting detail of the Portuguese culture. I’ll also remember all of the fun moments at my internship, like on the last day, my colleagues took me out to their favorite burger restaurant and gave me a beautiful card and gift.

 

Q: Has this changed your career interests?

A: It has confirmed my desire to work somewhere with a global perspective and where you can connect with different people. I am not positive that I’ll want to continue with hotel marketing, but I am open to the possibility of the hotel business.

 

Q: What’s something you learned?

A: I learned to embrace every situation I found myself in, and I learned that your experience is what you make it. The more you are willing to try to new things and takes risks, the more you get back in return.

 

Q: Would you want to work with them again?

A: Absolutely!

 

Learning about Charlotte’s experience makes me once again feel so thankful that we have Winterim. These precious three weeks in January prove very beneficial to every student’s education. Thank you, Charlotte, for sharing your cool experience.
