Ebru Ozsoy

(Ebru Ozsoy, 2017 ABU Tourism Management Graduate)

It has been 4 years since I graduated from Antalya Bilim University Tourism Management Department. We don't realise many things when we enter and leave the lessons. Like everyone else, it is very interesting to miss the periods when we were complaining about graduation and graduation. Immediately after graduation, I started working as a spa receptionist at JW Marriott Ankara, one of the best examples of city hotel management. Since the idea of the Marriott hotel chain is that if the employees are happy, our guests will be happy, there is a staff-first working environment. Some of the best examples of this are the hotel's gifts thought for the staff on their birthdays and employment anniversaries. One of the most important things that my managers noticed while I was working was that my professional English was at a good level. I would like to thank Antalya Bilim University for this training.
