Summary of Internship

At the Clinton Inn Hotel, there were many jobs that are happening at the same time to keep the hotel moving. Every month I went to a different department to learn how the people ran the hotel, but from different point of views. I started at the front desk, and it was tough at first because I wasnít used to answering so many phone calls and dealing with so many people at the same time. Then I moved to the pastry department. By far, the pastry department was the most fun because I actually got to help the pastry chef. I learned the different consistencies of chocolate and icing, and other baking tips since I want to be pastry chef. I got more out of this department because this is career that I want to pursue, being a pastry chef. When I had to switch to the restaurant, I was a bit sad, and then realized that I was still going to be working with food. It was fun and then it was time to be waitress. It wasnít as exciting as I thought it would be the restaurant doesnít get so many customers so there is less serving people than I thought there would be. Then I was switched to housekeeping which was fine because it wasn't too hard to do. Now Iím in sales, which involves a lot of paper work. I canít wait until I get transferred back to pastry which wonít be until May.
