Working as a Marketing intern at The Ascott Vietnam was an incredible experience. It truly was rewarding. I got the chance to gain a real first-hand insight into the hospitality industry and hotel sector in particular. Especially for The Ascott Vietnam which is an international corporation – The Ascott Limited, it was interesting to see how the brand is managed to retain its reputation, through a wide and creative range of marketing and promotional activities and events. Since Ascott manages hotels, offices and apartments, everyone works together very closely. The working environment is bright, clean and professional. Every staff is dedicated, focused and always puts customers first. Working in the marketing team in an open office means that everyone is extremely close and works well with each other. Every person is extremely hard-working and ready to help you with everything you might need. This experience has taught me to have patience, creativity, adaptability and valuable skills not just professionally but personally. Working at The Ascott Vietnam for almost 3 months made me realize that this is the industry that I want to be a part of in the future, due to the fact that this is the fastest-growing and ludicrous industry of the 21st century, and because of the myriad opportunities that can come from it, through working with foreign customers and clients. There are many open doors when it comes to hotel management and professional advancement in this field of work. Overall, this internship was filled with many a valuable lesson and unforgettable encounters, enhanced my skill set and has helped propel me into a career in marketing in the hospitality industry that I enjoy.
