It has been 6 months I never give any update for this blog. I don't want to search and make any blank reasons for this case, base honestly, I had lots of program since I had my 5th and 6th semester in college so far. I have updated those programmes into my latest blog.
If you see from my blog title, perhaps you will know that I'm not in Bali anymore. Yes, starting from two weeks before, I start to live in Jakarta because of my seventh semester program of internship. I choose the same company for todays internship which is one of Four Seasons Hotel and Resort and I choose Jakarta. Two months ago I sent an email, attached with CV and application letter, into Learning Department of this hotel. Fortunately I was accepted to have 6 months internship program in Sales and Marketing Division and it was starting on 19th July 2010. If the plan will not changed, I'll finish this internship program on 14 January 2010.
Most people asked me, why I choose Jakarta as the place for my second internship program. They thought that I was fool boy, I leave my families, friends, and my beautiful island. I replied : I am 21 years old now and I think it was enough for me to enjoy my heaven and start to look at the hell. I want a new challenge and in my country, people usually say that the city with huge of challenge is in capital. I want a new challenge and I think Jakarta will be good starting point for me to learn more thing about this world. And why I choose same hotel, because I believe this hotel has a good program on its learning especially on internship program. I want to prove that fact when I arrive at Soettha International Airport three weeks ago. Is that fact will be come true ?
The answer I got two weeks ago on my first day on 19th July. Learning Manager and some staffs welcomed us (me and the other 31 trainees) and I felt a warmth atmosphere on that moment. But I was very surprised after that. The Learning Manager is very concern about our manner and performance. She punished some of trainees because of unaccepted reason. But I was agree with her.
And now it has since be a week for me in Sales Marketing Office. On first period, until October, the trainers put me on Room Sales Department. Sometimes I felt so bored because nothing I can do, I just take a little of administration program, although all staff here welcomed me very well. All of them have different characteristics and I must have a great spirit about adaptation with them. Other adaptation is about my manner.
Last but not least, all learning point can be done without we do the activity. We can do by some method such as observation, interviewing, or by anquete (extremely). And I always concern that what I must right here is not do lots of things but learn a lot of things. Last months, by some suggestion from my family, I had a plan to change my goal from working in hotel, into working as an entrepeneur or working part time as a lecturer. So far, actually by this week learning experience, I learn how travel agencies create their goal and making a great rate corperation with hotel. When they have a fine deal, then they have a good business. That's why I have a plan after finish this internship, I want to keep a spirit to make a travel agent in my town and start to search potential business with potential business.
One week in Four Seasons Hotel Jakarta is challenging so far. What a kind of pressure around here ! New atmosphere, new staffs (friends), with a new character of boss or manager! Still 5 and 3 weeks to go and it will be finished well by lots of learning point. Then I finish my project. Weekly updated will be coming soon.
