Thomas's J-1 journey

Thomas, The Hay Adams, Rooms Management

The J-1 program with HRC really helped me to make a step forward with my career. After my management trainee in Yinchuan – China, I was looking for a new adventure and HRC offered me the opportunity to move in Washington DC as an Assistant Front Office Manager. I really enjoyed my time in DC, not only with the job I had but also with all the different people I have met during that time. After a year full of new experiences and discovery, I was offered to take over the position of Executive Assistant to the GM in Geneva – Switzerland, my hometown. A thing led to another, here I am today as the General Manager of the Starling Hotel Residence Geneva, leading a beautiful and highly motivated team, passionate about people and customer service. I strongly recommend HRC J-1 program to any young people that want to step out of their comfort zone and discover the diversity of people and experience the world has to offer.
